4 EHEF India 2014 Student FAQs Answered 11. What is the higher education system in Europe like? The education system in Europe is based on Three Degree Cycle. Two basic degrees, Bachelor and Master, have been adopted now by every participating country. Typically, a Bachelor degree requires ECTS credits and a Master programme between ECTS credits, however with a minimum of 60 ECTS (corresponding to one typical full-time academic year of learning within a formal learning programme) at Master level. This allows for a flexible approach in defining the length of both Bachelor and Master programmes. The participating countries have made substantial changes to their systems in response to the Bologna Process. In the third cycle, there is European PhD programmes. 12. What is European Higher Education Area? In 1999, the Ministers of Education from 29 countries in Europe met in the Italian city of Bologna to propose the creation of a European Higher Education Area through a resolution called the Bologna Declaration. The aim of the Bologna Declaration was to create a cohesive European Higher Education Area by 2010 in order to facilitate academic mobility, increase the comparability of studies across all the educational systems of the participating countries as well as promote Europe as a world education destination. 13. What is the structure of the higher education system in the European Higher Education Area? First cycle (Bachelor s Degree) ECTS (3-4 years) Second cycle (Master s program) ECTS (1,5-2 years) Third cycle (Doctoral studies) No ECTS range 14. What is the ECTS System? The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), is a credit system that was first introduced in Europe in 1989 within the educational exchange program Erasmus. However, the ECTS is now widely used throughout higher education institutions as it facilitates student mobility within Europe and the comparison of study programs and courses. 4

5 15. How does the ECTS benefit students? The ECTS is a learner-centered system based on the student workload required to achieve certain course outcomes. The workload refers to the amount of time a student needs to complete the learning activities, such as self-study, seminars, projects or exams, to achieve the course outcomes. The credits can be attached to study programs, courses or even modules within a course. Furthermore, students can accumulate credits and pass them over to other institutions to continue with their studies. Therefore, the ECTS is also referred to as European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. The use of the ECTS by institutions is not compulsory. However, if you plan to study in Europe, you will notice the majority of institutions provide students with the number of ECTS each course and module is worth. 16. How many ECTS is an academic year worth? A full-time student would need to complete 60 ECTS per academic year, which represents about 1,500 to 1,800 hours of study. According to the ECTS, study programs in Europe are worth the following number of credits: Bachelor's degrees (first cycle) are worth ECTS (3 to 4 years) Master's programs (second cycle) are worth ECTS (1 to 2 years) PhD studies (third cycle) have no ECTS range 17. How can I find more information about ECTS? More information about the ECTS System can be accessed on the European Commission website: ects_en.htm You can also download the ECTS User s Guide here: docs/ects-guide_en.pdf 18. What is Erasmus+? The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.
