In Europe, ECTS are used as a basis for academic achievements, so that the number of ECTS completed can be directly transferable. A "Learning Agreement" determines which courses at the partner university are taken by the exchange student. This "Learning Agreement" is drawn up in agreement with both faculties so that, depending on the agreement, the courses taken can be credited.
