ECTS Coordinator

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a standard for comparing the study attainment and performance of students of higher education across the European Union and other collaborating European countries. Students should check which courses of study at the foreign partner university fit best to their studies at the home university.

Before departure, you should talk to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Enning (ECTS Coordinator at Faculty 8) to find out, whether the courses you are planning to attend at a foreign university are suitable to be recognized for your studies at the FH Aachen.

After your return, Professor Enning will examine the certificates about the courses of study successfully absolved at the foreign partner university. If they comply with the studies at the home university, he will issue a recognition certificate to credit, transfer and accumulate the academic achievements to your studies at the FH Aachen.
