ECTS system and Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement, which has been designed jointly by the EU, the European Council and UNESCO, provides more information about the student’s studies, the level of the degree as well as how it prepares for further studies and life after graduation. The Diploma Supplement is automatically issued together with the Diploma to all graduates of institutes of higher education.

Studies at institutes of higher education are measured in terms of credits, which indicate the scope of the student’s studies. 60 credits represents 1,600 hours of studies, which is the equivalent of one academic year of studies. One credit therefore represents roughly 27 hours of studies.

It easens the academic and professional recognition and mobility of individuals.
