European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)
According to ECTS, 60 higher education academic credits correspond to 1500–1800 hours of total workload of a full-time university student during a single academic year. In such cases one ECTS credit represents approximately 25-30 working hours. ECTS credits are used to facilitate transfer and progression.
A UK undergraduate degree equates to 180 ECTS credits.
Guide to IPED’s Grading/Equivalences System and ECTS
- Credit is the value of a module in terms of its workload.
- The credit value for every IPED module is 30. Every IPED module has 30 credits. E.g. the module Introduction to Economics has 30 credits.
- 1 credit is equivalent to 10 hours of teaching and learning.
- 30 credits are therefore equivalent to 300 hours of teaching and learning.
- Every IPED module has/is assigned 300 hours of teaching and learning. Therefore, for example, the module Introduction to Economics has/is assigned 300 hours of teaching and learning.
- Depending on the IPED course, a minimum of 4 modules or a maximum of 6 modules must be successfully completed by the learner, per level, to achieve the respective award.
- 1 ECTS is equivalent to approximately 25 working hours.
