Credit Passing System in Spain

Understanding ECTS Credits

1. Credit Allocation: ECTS credits represent the workload and defined learning outcomes ("what the student is expected to know, understand and be able to do") of a given course or program.

2. Workload: One ECTS credit generally corresponds to 25 to 30 hours of total workload, including lectures, seminars, projects, self-study, examinations, and other assessment activities.

Credit Requirements

  • Bachelor’s Degree: Typically requires 180-240 ECTS credits, equivalent to 3 to 4 years of full-time study.

  • Master’s Degree: Usually requires 60-120 ECTS credits, equivalent to 1 to 2 years of full-time study.

  • PhD Programs: Do not have a strict ECTS credit requirement as they are primarily research-based.

Accumulation and Transfer of Credits

  • Accumulation: Students accumulate credits by successfully completing courses. Each course is assigned a specific number of credits, reflecting the estimated workload to complete it.

  • Transfer: ECTS credits are designed to be transferable between institutions within the European Higher Education Area. This facilitates student mobility for exchanges, Erasmus programs, or transferring to a different university.

Grading System

  • The ECTS grading scale is often used alongside the national grading system. It ranks students on a percentile basis, where 'A' is the highest (top 10% of students), followed by B, C, D, and E.

  • The Spanish national grading system typically ranges from 0 to 10, with a minimum passing grade usually around 5 or 6.

Usage and Benefits

  • Student Mobility: ECTS makes studying abroad in Europe more accessible as it provides a common language for academic recognition.

  • Transparency: It enhances the transparency of study programs and student achievement.
