Recognition of credit

What credits can be validated?
In principle, you can validate all types of credit, provided that the academic coordinator agrees. We will have to consider the contents of the subjects to destination and workload.
Before the stay, the student must agree with his coordinator shall send destination studies and studies of the UDL to be validated.
As a general rule, you can not validate the failed subjects. These are to study at the UdL.
How many credits can be validated?

The recommended workload depends on the length of stay:
• middle course = 30 credits ECTS
• a full year = 60 ECTS credits

There ECTS credits and ECTS grades.


Each course has a number of (specific to each university) local credit and also a number of ECTS credits that facilitate the calculation recognize when subjects studied at different universities.
The equivalent of a whole academic year workload is 60 ECTS credits. For a semester / quarter, 30 ECTS credits. For a quarter, 20 ECTS credits. These are generally ECTS a student shall issue on arrival, according to length of stay.
