European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)  and Universiti Kuala Lumpur Credit Equivalent

What is ECTS?

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a tool of the European Higher Education Area for making studies and courses more transparent. It helps students to move between countries and to have their academic qualifications and study periods abroad recognised.

ECTS allows credits taken at one higher education institution to be counted towards a qualification studied for at another. ECTS credits represent learning based on defined learning outcomes and their associated workload.

ECTS Conversion Table for Student Learning Time (SLT)


1 Credits = 40 Hours 1 ECTS = 25 hours

Example :

Subject with 3 Credits

3 x 40 hrs SLT = 129 hrs SLT


120 hrs SLT / (25 hrs SLT / ECTS) = 4.8 ECYS (approximately 5 ECTS)
