ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System)

The Academy of Fine Arts G. Carrara uses the ECTS system by applying the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS - European Credit Transfer System) in all first-cycle degrees.

ECTS is a recognized standard that was established with the aim of encouraging mobility of students within Europe and cultural exchange. This standard allows the comparison of credit systems used in high artistic training institutes (AFAM) and university institutions in Europe, for the planning and activation of students training. This allows the student who studied in a country to have recognized their studies at the institution of another country that adheres to the standard.

In particular, the ECTS system is "based on the workload required for a student to achieve the objectives of a course of study, preferably expressed in terms of learning outcomes and competences to be acquired. The workload includes the time to all learning activities "(ECTS Key Features, 2002)

To this end, the key documents of ECTS are:

  • The Student Guide (Information Package / Course Catalogue), to be published in two languages (or only in English for programs taught in English) on the Web and / or in paper form. The Student Handbook must contain full information about the institution and the courses of study and must include the information for host students from abroad.

  • The Learning Agreement (Learning Agreement) contains the list of courses to follow agreed between the student and the Academic Council. In the case of credit transfer, the Learning Agreement has to be agreed between the student and the two institutions concerned before departure and must be updated immediately when changes occur.

  • The exams Certificate (Transcript of Records) documents the performance of a student by showing the list of courses taken, the credits gained, the local grades and ECTS grades awarded. In case of transfer of credit, the exam certificate must be issued by the Academy of origin before departure of its mobile students and the Academy of welcome at the end of the study period of the guest students. This is therefore an important formal document because it certifies and recognizes the results obtained.
