(E)CTS: What are they?
This Credit Transfer System helps international students to make the most of their studies: The (E)CTS are a tool to acknowledging courses and programmes. The (E)CTS are a result of the Bologna process.
1 (E)CTS point equals 30 hours of student workload, of which a minimum of 10 hours are contact hours.
The form of contact time with the module supervisor (or visiting lecturer, mentor, teaching assistant, specialist support etc.) depends on the intended purposes: giving instructions, discussion and reflection, know-how and knowledge transfer, site visit, skill demonstration, guided practice, group and peer learning, face-to-face feedback. Contact time might be virtual or face-to-face. Virtual contact means using email, discussion groups, virtual learning environments (VLEs), and other technology-aided means.
This is the total amount of time a student is expected to spend studying. This includes, apart of the contact hours, self-organised studying and research activities, work on given case studies, skill training, readings, writings, project designs etc.
The MAS Art & Society includes 3 CAS programmes and 1 MAS Project:
Candidates seeking to earn an MAS must complete the three CAS programmes and the MAS Project. Each component is awarded 15 (E)CTS, amounting to 60 (E)CTS in total.
