a- How does the ECTS work ?

The ECTS program (European Community Course Credit Transfer System) has been developed by the European Community commitee in order to provide common procedures to guarantee the academic recognition of studies abroad. The program allows the measurement and the comparison of the academic results and makes the transfer of those results possible from one institution to another.

b- The ECTS credits

The ECTS credits are assigned to the course modules according to their relative importance. One year of studies represent 60 credits (a six month period = 30 credits maximum). Those credits include the total volume of the work that the student is supposed to supply (theoretical courses, practical courses, seminars, personal work, examinations or other valuation methods of the courses).

The concerned ECTS credits are granted to students who pass their examinations and get a sufficient mark by the different forms of valuation.

Built-in parts of the education such as the work placement in companies and the optional courses are also assigned the credits. The parts who are not included in the education will not receive the credits. However, they can be mentioned with the marks.

c- The ECTS marks

A : EXCELLENT

remarkable result with only some minor shortcomings

B : VERY WELL DONE

results over the average inspite of some shortcomings

C : WELL DONE

a generally good work inspite of some noteable shorcomings

D : SATISFACTORY

honourable work containing some important gaps

E : PASSABLE

the results satisfy the minimal criterious

FX : UNSATISFACTORY

an additional work is necessary to obtain a credit

F : UNSATISFACTORY

a considerable additional work is necessary.

d- The ECTS students

The students who participate in the ECTS program will receive complete credits for all academic work accomplished with succes in all the ECTS partner institutions. They will be able to transfer those credits from one partner instutions to another on the basis of the previous consent of the education program content abroad between the students and the concerned institutions.

Most of the ECTS students will study within one single home institution (belonging to a country with a European Community membership) during a limited period of time in order to, afterward, return to their home institution. Some will be able to continue their studies in a 3rd institution. In each of those three cases, the students must submit to the legal and institutional rules of the host country.
