ECTS Advances Internationality
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) is a European course grade transfer and accreditation system. 1 ECTS credit is equal to 1 Finnish credit (cr). This equals to approx. 27 hours of a student's work. A full workload for students is 1600 hours per year equaling to 60 ECTS.
The aim of ECTS is to ease students’ mobility by offering comparable information on universities and their degree programmes. Also, its aim is to facilitate the approval and recognition of studies accomplished abroad.
