ECTS Credit System, Course Enrolment and Course Groups

The University of Economics uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Each course is evaluated by a certain amount of credits according to its study workload.

The system was created in 1998 with the aim to harmonize European higher education and to facilitate student mobility across Europe and the world. At the University of Economics, it was introduced in 2005.

For more information, please visit the website of the European Commission or of the Czech Ministry of Education.

Within the ECTS, it is easier to measure the study workloads and learning outcomes of our courses. At FIR, we evaluate these measures regularly each semester – and students’ evaluations of courses help us a lot, too!
