The ECTS and the recognition

Established under the Bologna Process, the ECTS system widens the possibilities for student mobility within the European Union education system.

The ECTS credits are based on the amount of work required to reach the expected results at the end of the study process.
HELMo entered in the Egracons system since June 2019. The reccords are now more clearly identified.  It is easier to establish the equivalence between diplomas offered in one country and another.
The use of that system and its required documents allows the setting up of a learning agreement and the recognition of the activities listed in the Learning Agreement which have been marked sufficient during the mobility period.
The value of a full academic year is 60 credits. In most cases, the students amount of work ranks from1500 to 1800 hours for one academic year; the value of one credit represents 25 to 30 hours of work.
The Learning Agreement for studies, section to be completed “before the mobility” defines the curriculum to be followed by the student, as agreed before the mobility between the student, the home institution and the host institution.
The Learning Agreement for studies, section to be completed “after the mobility”, produced at the end of the stay, confirms that the agreed curriculum has been attended and lists the marks of the student’s assessment. That document guarantees the transparency of the results.
The Placement Agreement, section to be completed “before the mobility” includes the training agreement. The section to be completed “after the mobilityincludes a certificate of placement delivered by the company.
