Non-US participants will be awarded ECTS credits. The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System [ECTS] is a student-centered system based on the workload required to achieve the objectives of a course. The organization's aim is to facilitate student mobility and therefore simplifies the process of credit transfer. The system is based on the assumption that 60 credits equals the workload of a full-time student during one academic year. The student workload of a full-time study program in Europe approximately amounts to 40 weeks per year and in this case one credit stands for 24 to 30 working hours. For more information on ECTS please visit the homepage of the European Union.
Please note: ECTS credits will only be awarded upon passed examinations.
