With a view to facilitate student mobility and the comparison of students' study attainment across the EU, the new degrees courses have massively adopted the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), that awards not only for class attendance but for all the other areas the student's academic activities could comprise up to a total sum of 25 workload hours completed in any of the following learning areas:
- Lectures and practical classes
- Private study, on- or off-campus
- Participation in seminars, assignments, practical work and projects
- Preparation for and completion of examinations and assessment tests
A complete academic course will be awarded with 60 ECTS credits.
