ECTS and Assessment Considerations


This resource aims to increase awareness of the relationship between the teaching, learning, and assessment workload and how these align with the ECTS value of a module. Assessment workload is typically based on how much time an average student invests in order to achieve a module’s learning outcomes at threshold level. A module or course with 10 ECTS credits should have approximately twice the workload of a course with 5 ECTS.
