ECTS credit system
Finnish higher education institutions use the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) in measuring a student’s workload. In this system one full-time academic year is equivalent to 60 higher education credits.
When you complete your studies successfully, you are awarded with ECTS credits.
The ECTS system is a tool that helps to describe and compare study programmes and award higher education qualifications. It is used across the European Union and other collaborating European countries.
