  • Click on Status of application button given on left side-bar of the page, there will be a menu called ECTS, click on that to fill the ECTS form


ECTS form
  • Above the ECTS form, you will find your application details. Scroll down and read the instruction carefully to fill this form, you can fill this form in Credit Points (CP) or in Hours according to your Bachelors university's convention
  • For TUHH minimum credit points required is 90 CP in that 16 CP must be in Mathematics subjects and remaining 74 CP from your course subjects.

For Example lets us consider the below table for ECTS calculation :

  • Please refer the table below, consider any one subject from your course (Digital Communication), you should know details such as Number of lecture hours per week and Number of weeks per semester since you have already completed (about to complete) your bachelors.
  • For the "Digital Communication" subject, let's assume 4 hours in a week lecture and 4 hours per week on assignments, home work and self study. Since typically the lecture period runs for 4 months in a semester, let's assume, Number of weeks per semester as 16.
SubjectNo. of Hours per weekNo. of weeks per semesterTotal No. of Hours
Digital Communication4 (Classes)1664
4 (Assignment + Study hrs)1664
Grand Total =128 Hours
  • Now calculate by multiplying,

No. of hrs per week x No. of weeks per semester = Total hours

i.e 4 hrs x 16 weeks = 64 total hrs

  • Similarly Consider,

4 hours per week for self study or assignment x 16 weeks per semester = 64 total hours,

calculate the grand total of hours i.e approximately equal to 128 hours

  • According to European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)

30 study hours = 1 ECTS credit point

  • Now divide the total no. of hours by ECTS hours,

i.e., 128 hrs / 30 hrs = 4.2 CP approximately 4 credit for "Digital Communication"

  • Similar calculation for practical labs or workshop as done above
  • Consider "C programming Lab", assume 3 hours in a week will be taken and you will be having 16 weeks for each semester,

i.e., 3 hrs X 16 weeks = 48 hrs

SubjectNo. of Hours per weekNo. of weeks per semesterTotal No. of Hours
C Programming Lab3 (Labs)1648
3 (Assignment + Study hrs)1648
Grand Total =96 Hours
  • Assume you will be having 3 hrs self study per week and you will be having 16 weeks for each semester,

i.e., 3 hrs x 16 weeks = 48 hrs

  • Now divide the total no. of hours by ECTS hours,

i.e. 96 hrs / 30 hrs = 3.2 CP approximately 3 credit for "C programming Lab"

  • If your university already has a credit system or mention of hours in your transcipts then DO NOT use this method. You can enter the credits or hours directly into the second column.
