ECTS - The European system for measuring study progress

A general overview on the ECTS can be found here.

ECTS is a s system for measuring your study progress across Europe in a standardized way, meaning that, e.g., one ECTS point you receive is worth one ECTS point throughout all universities in Europe.

ECTS is built upon four basic principles:

  1. Per year it is assumed you are able to receive 60 ECTS points that then are distributed over the courses and seminars you can choose. The basis for this distribution is what is expected from domestic students.
  2. The universities offer information with the respective ECTS points that can be received for each course you are eligible to choose
  3. Before departure the hosting university and the Erasmus incoming sign a learning agreement that records the planned courses and also encompasses the formerly received ECTS points. After your stay, the hosting university confirms the ECTS points you actually received on basis of the transcript of your stay.
  4. Your home university also confirms the received points that by this measure can replace a comparable portion of study at your home university.

Concerning a stay inside the European Union, you can refer to Mrs. Annika Ostendorf (Erasmus coordinator).
