http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus Where do mobile students choose to go?
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS: European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System Objectives: improve transparency and comparability of study programs and qualifications; compare academic achievements; increasing mobility of students; assure academic equality.
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS course catalogues: university regulations; study programmes and course descriptions; general practical information; additional information for incoming exchange students; International Education Office; courses and programmes taught in English; quick overview: contact addresses, academic calendar, authorities and administrative procedures and regulations.
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS course descriptions: credits (based on student workload); pre-requisites; learning outcomes; course contents, year of study; mode and language of instruction; assessment methods, course literature, etc. European Commission - ECTS Users‘ Guide
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS programme descriptions - overview of all course units/modules Study programme: fits the needs of individual students; subject to approval by the Department; interdisciplinary; based on the student's research topic.
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS modules Modularized systems ‘Credit-bearing modules’ Non-modularized systems
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus Self-contained units of: teaching learning assessment. ECTS modules
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus ECTS credits: 60 ECTS; fulltime year of formal learning; entire qualifications; individual students. European Commission - ECTS Users‘ Guide Promoting Sustainable Excellence in Testing and Assessment of English PROSET
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus The division of credits: 28/32, 30/30. Europe: academic year =1,500 to 1,800 hours' work; 25 to 30 hours = 1 ECTS credit. Russia: 36 academic hours (45 min.) or 27 astronomical hours (60 min) = 1 ECTS credit; student’s workload per week is 54 academic hours or 1.5 credits. ECTS credits:
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus Workload The time required to complete all planned learning activities. Involves: lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, internships, laboratory work, self-study, examinations in an educational component. Is estimated: through monitoring and learner feedback.
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus I.Introducing modules/course units. II.Estimating student workload: types of courses; types of learning activities; types of assessment. III.Checking the estimated workload through student evaluations. IV.Adjustment of workload and/or educational activities. WORKLOAD
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus Grades are assigned among students with a pass grade as follows: A best 10% B next 25% C next 30% D next 25% E next 10% FX - “fail – some more work required to pass” F - “fail – considerable further work required” ECTS grades

http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus know; understand; be able to do at the end of a learning experience. LEARNING OUTCOMES:
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus Learning outcomes: understanding and acquisition of knowledge. Competences: ability to use knowledge and skills in work and study and in professional and personal development. G. Cullen, 2012 A rule of thumb
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus “ACQA (Academic Competence Quality Assurance) Method” developed at the TU Eindhoven (NL); Dublin Descriptors [http://www.nvao.net/page/downloads/Du blin_Descriptors.pdf]. Learning outcomes:
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus an attachment to a higher education diploma; international transparency; academic and professional recognition of qualifications. Diploma Supplement (DS):
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus 1.Information identifying the holder of the qualification. 2.Information identifying the qualification. 3.Information on the level of the qualification. 4.Information on the contents and results gained. 5.Information on the function of the qualification. 6.Additional information. 7.Certification of the supplement. 8.Information on the national higher education system. The Diploma Supplement
http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/tempus 60 credits measure the workload of a full-time student over one academic year. 30 credits are given for a semester. Student workload in ECTS consists of the time required to complete all planned learning activities. Credits are allocated for course attendance, practical training, lab work, research thesis, exams etc. Conclusions
