ECTS Coordinator

Pascal Simonet

The ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is a system enabling the mutual recognition of academic programmes of periods of study carried out in another country and the results obtained in the high-level art education establishment of the host country. This programme is in operation within Europe for both individual projects and for complete academic curricula.

The system is based on mutual confidence among the high-level art establishments and the partner institutions and also on the desire for transparency regarding results achieved (thanks to the creation of ECTS information files) and the use of the ECTS credit point system.

Within the ECTS system, a course is considered from the student's point of view. The ECTS credits inform the students of the overall volume of work they are expected to produce to successfully complete the academic programme. It includes the course that the student must follow  and the personal work to be produced regarding the course programme. According to the ECTS system, the volume of work for all the disciplines represents 30 credits per semester and 60 credit points for a full academic year.

The students on international mobility programmes see their currriculum validated by the host establishment on the basis of the ECTS system. 

Before departure for a partner establishment, the student must sign a study contract which stipulates the exact number of credits to be obtained as well as the courses to be followed. Any modification to this agreement must be negotiated by the two coordinators concerned. On return to his original university/establishment the student provides proof of the work carried out and validates the results obtained by producing the relevant mark sheet .
