ECTS is an abbreviation for European Credit Transfer System. It is credit system created to make studies and courses more transparent European-wide and to replace or complement the different local (national) standards within Europe.

The credit system is based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a course or programme. The ECTS system requires that every assignment states the estimated number of student work hours needed to fulfil this requirement.
