ECTS System

Common procedures guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. They help to measure and compare the learning outcomes and to transfer the received credits from one institution to another. Bilateral agreements are based on the principle of mutual trust and confidence; higher education institutions use an effective quality assurance system and the rules of the European Credit Transfer System accordingly.

1 full academic year = 60 credit points
1 semester = 30 credit points
