ECTS is short for the European Credit Transfer System
This system is widely used across Europe to make it easier to compare the workload of courses across national borders.
A full semester workload equals 30 ECTS credits. Two semesters equal 60 ECTS credits. Master courses often count as 10 ECTS credits, i.e. a third of one semester. Master students typically have 10-15 teaching hours per week.
Exchange and guest students are expected to take a full workload during their stay at the University, including exams.
As a student at the University of Southern Denmark you receive a grade transcript after your stay is over. Full degree students receive their diploma. Exchange and guest students receive a grade transcript. The University only makes one original transcript/diploma which is sent directly to you.
As an exchange or guest student, it is your responsibility to give your home institution a copy of your grade transcript as soon as you receive it.
Grade transcripts are issued by the Examinations Office in February/March for the exams completed in December and January and in July/August for the exams completed in June.
In order for the Examinations Office to be able to send your transcript to your address in your home country, you must do the following:
• Send an email to the Examinations Office email@example.com stating your name, your cpr.no. and your address at home.
