 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System and is a standard across the European Union. Its aim is, to makes programmes and the performance of students of higher education more transparent and comparable European-wide and to replace or complement the different local (national) standards within Europe.
The ECTS consists out of two main elements:

  • ECTS-credits
  • ECTS grading scale


By completing a course, seminar, module etc. you get awarded with ECTS-credit points. Every ECTS credit point stands hereby for a certain amount of work load. Typically, one year corresponds to 60 ECTS-credits. A 3-year Bachelors programme has therefore usually 180 ECTS-credits; a 2-year Masters programme usually 120 ECTS-credits. Usually, one ECTS credit point equals on average between 25 and 30 working hours.

ECTS grading scale

Besides the ECTS-credits, an ECTS grading system was defined by the European Commission. Since there are nearly as many different grading systems as countries, its aim is to make grades more comparable to each other. Due to its relative nature, the ECTS grading scale can just give an orientation about a student’s performance since the grading depends on the group performance which can vary especially in smaller groups. The same student can therefore achieve different grades with the same performance depending on being in a more or less competitive class. However, the ECTS grading system is way more transparent than many national grading systems and might be helpful.

The ECTS grading system is not replacing the local grading systems but just meant as a supplement aside the local grades, for example on a transcript of records. Similarly to the American grading scale it is based on the class percentile. That means, that the grade shows how a student performed compared to the other students in the same class. Before the evaluation, the results are divided into the two subgroups pass and fail. Therefore, the results are independent from the students who failed a course. The grading system is defined as follows:

A: Best 10%
B: Next 25%
C: Next 30%
D: Next 25%
E: Next 10%
FX: Fail (almost passing)
F: Fail
