Credits (ECTS credits)

Credits are awarded for successfully completed modules.

During your studies, you will earn credits, also called ECTS credits. ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer System and is intended to facilitate the recognition of academic achievements. 

Credits are only awarded for successfully completed modules. The number of credits for a module reflects the approximate time required for a given course, as well as the weighting of the module grade in the final grade. 

A single ECTS credit approximates a 30-hour work load per semester. 30 credits are to be earned per semester.

From the expected number of points, you can calculate how much of your time a module will take up. 

In a Bachelor's program a total of 180 ECTS credits must be earned, in a Master's program 120 ECTS credits.
