Curriculum, ECTS

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a European wide system of marks, which records the performance of the students and the connected quota of work. A definite amount of credits is assigned to each course.

The principle is to give one credit per 30 hours of 60 minutes workload. Workload is defined as the expenditure of time which a student devotes altogether for achieving of learning results: attending of courses, preparatory works, training, assessments, exams, self-concentrated learning. The expenditure has to be ascertained empirically for each subject or modul, especially in the frame of the transforming process to Bachelor and Master programmes. With regard to maintained study programmes one calculates on estimated proportions in the period of transition, for instance one uses the proportion of 1 to 2 or 1 to 3 in the relation of course attendance to the other components of the workload. FHVR decided for the propotion 1 to 3 because of the high concentration of the programme. For example a course of 10 lessons to 45 minutes corresponds to 7,5 hours and receives one credit in the proportion of 1 to 3. The table of credits with roundings up and off is:

This system of marks we only use for our foreign students.

Moduls in english language

The Faculty offers its own and its incoming students the possibility of completing a cross-curricular module in English. The module will probably take place twice a year, namely in December and spring. Students of partner universities for the full participation get ECTS-credits, own students of Administrative Sciences receive a certificate of participation.

Note for incoming students: The module numbers may be included in the Learning Agreement.
