European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)
ECTS is a credit system based on the learning achievements and workload of a course. ECTS makes individual national systems more compatible in order to make it easier for students to move between different countries. Thus a student can transfer his/her ECTS credits from one university to another, which can recognize student´s achievements within its own framework.
ECTS also helps with the planning, delivery and evaluation of study programmes, and makes them more transparent.
