About ECTS and its methodology
By applying for the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education our institution will:
Respect in full the principles of non-discrimination set out in
the Programme and ensure equal access and opportunities to mobile
participants from all backgrounds.
Ensure full recognition for satisfactorily completed activities of
study mobility and, where possible, traineeships in terms of credits
awarded (ECTS or compatible system.). Ensure the inclusion of
satisfactorily completed study and/or traineeship mobility activities in
the final record of student achievements (Diploma Supplement or
Explanation of the academic credit system and the methodology used to allocate credits to the different course units followed by our students abroad.
The study of individual programmes and courses is carried out on the
basis of a credit system corresponding to ECTS, in which one credit
corresponds to 1/60 of average annual student workload. Each course
included in the study plans is assessed according to its difficulty by a
certain number of credits that students earn. The courses are divided
into compulsory (type-A credits), compulsory-optional (type-B credits)
and voluntary-optional (type-C credits). Students have to earn 60
credits a year. Courses successfully completed by students abroad are
recognized as type-A or type-B credits if the contents of course abroad
correspond to a similar course of the type-A/B at our university; and
as type-C credits otherwise. The extent to which the contents of the
two courses correspond is assessed by a faculty member of the
department in question.
All courses succesfully completed at the host institution are
recognized after the mobility; this applies also to student
traineeships. The Faculty Erasmus Coordinator in cooperation with the
respective department helps the student to draw up a suitable plan of
study before the mobility, which is in accordance with the student's
study profile and can be fully recognized when he/she returns.
