ECTS

Artesis Plantijn University College works with ECTS-credits.

ECTS stands for 'European Credit Transfer System' and has by now become widely known. It is part of the extensive Erasmus programme, which aims at increasing the European dimension in higher education. It also stimulates students to spend part of their studies abroad. For that purpose it is of course essential that study programmes are comparable and that course grades are officially recognized.

ECTS provides students and institutions with a system that enables them to measure and compare intellectual progress.

ECTS is based on a system that indicates the study-load (in other words courses, independent study, seminars, internships, etc.). ECTS arbitrarily considers 60 credits (or study points) to be the normal study-load for an entire academic year; this automatically implies that a student who studies abroad for half a year has to assemble a course programme worth 30 ECTS-study points.

Incoming students will receive a Transcript of Records. Before the end of the academic year, the EISM Transcript of Records will be sent to the international office of the student's home institution.
This 'TOR' will contain the ECTS grading scale used at the department.

Credits are awarded only when the course has been completed and all required examinations have been successfully taken.
