ECTS makes teaching and learning more transparent and facilitates the recognition of studies. The system is used across Europe for credit transfer (student mobility) and credit accumulation (learning paths towards a degree).
The University of Antwerp applies ECTS in all its degree programmes. All study programmes are measured in terms of ECTS credits. A full-time one-year study programme amounts to 60 credits (30 credits per semester), which comprises a student workload of about 1500 to 1800 hours. One credit stands for 25 to 30 hours of work including contact hours, preparatory work, study and assessment. The University of Antwerp publishes annually its course catalogue on-line (in Dutch and English), provides international students with an information package and ECTS documents.
