Introduction to ECTS

ECTS, the European Course Transfer System, was developed by the Commission of the European Communities in order to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides a way of measuring and comparing learning achievements, and transferring them from one institution to another.

The use of ECTS is based on the principle of mutual trust and confidence between the participating higher education institutions.

It is important to highlight that ECTS is compulsorily used in all student mobility activities, having been extended to the cooperation with the third countries.

With the ECTS Information Package/Course catalogue, VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava wishes to provide all partner Higher Education Institutions with the transparency necessary for the organisation of any international student mobility, as well as to help the students who intend to choose the VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava as home or host institution in their decision.
