Recognition of credit

WHAT CREDITS CAN BE CONVALIDED?

In principle, all types of credits can be validated, provided that the academic coordinator agrees, but this will depend on each faculty or school. It will be necessary to consider the contents of the subjects to destination and the teaching load.

Before the stay, the student must agree, with their coordinator, the studies they will study at the destination and the UdL studies that will be validated.

As a general criterion, suspended subjects can not be validated. These must be taken to the UdL. In the case of the EPS, it is necessary to speak with the coordinator.

Maximum validity of credits

WHEN CREDITS CAN BE CONVALIDED?

The maximum number of credits that can be validated is based on the duration of the stay.

ANTICS PLANS OF STUDIES

    half-year = 37.5 UdL credits
    an entire course = 75 UdL credits

NEW PLANS OF STUDIES

    half course = 30 ECTS credits
    an entire course = 60 ECTS credits

The recognition system adopted for the Socrates / Erasmus program is called ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). The European Commission promotes ECTS as a common language to facilitate academic recognition among different universities.

There are ECTS credits and ECTS qualifications.

ECTS Credits

Each subject has a number of local credits (specific to each university) and, moreover, a number of ECTS credits, which facilitate the calculation when recognizing subjects studied in different universities.

The equivalent teaching load for an entire academic year is 60 ECTS credits. For a semester / semester, 30 ECTS credits. For a quarter, 20 ECTS credits. These are the ECTS credits that a student will usually study at destination, depending on the period of stay.

ECTS qualifications

The scale of ECTS qualifications represents the academic performance of the student in relation to the rest of students.

Credits and ECTS qualifications do not replace the credits and qualifications of each university, but provide complementary information on the academic performance of the student, from a quantitative and qualitative point of view.
