Credit Conversion Tables

Credit Conversion Tables

Using the Table*

In case in a country ECTS credits are given (See Table 1: Countries using ECTS) the credits can be taken over 1 on 1. In case the country where the credits are obtained isn’t one of the ECTS using countries, please check if the institution is being mentioned in Table 2: Credit Conversion Table of Non-ECTS Credits. If this is the case, please use the conversion given in that table.
If not, you can contact the coordinators of international affairs at your faculty. They might be able to help to give an estimation of the study load.
*Be aware! The conversions in the tables are an advised standard. An examination committee may decide to deviate.
