Study at ITC

Study load and ECTS

The study load for each course is expressed in credits

The European Union (EU) has developed a European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) to allow easy comparison of the study loads of courses within Europe. ITC has adopted this system as a means of improving academic recognition for study abroad.
