ECTS

  • 1 full academic year= 60 credits
  • 1 semester= 30 credits
  • 1 term/ trimester= 15 credits


The transfer of credits will be carried out by semester or year, or by unit, depending on the course structure.

Students will be awarded ECTS credits when they have passed the assessments corresponding to the courses to which ECTS credits are allocated. These credits represent the quantity of work completed by the student

The quality of the results obtained by the student will be represented in the form of grades; the ECTS grading scale enables the institutions to interpret the grades obtained by the students in the host universities.

For former study programmes (Pre-Bologna System) "Licenciaturas/Diplomaturas" 1 UCM Credit is equivalent to 10 lecture hours.
