ECTS Information Package

All programs of study offered by Frederick University are based on the European Credit Accumulation System (ECTS). The ECTS system is “a learner-centred system for credit accumulation and transfer based on the transparency of learning outcomes and learning processes. It aims to facilitate planning, delivery, evaluation, recognition and validation of qualifications and units of learning as well as student mobility. ECTS is widely used in formal higher education and can be applied to other lifelong learning activities”. More information about ECTS can be found in the ECTS Users’ Guide .
