Procedure for ECTS credit allocation

RIT Croatia implemented the Bologna Process in 2005 and we allocate ECTS credits for our courses. All three first-cycle programs require 240 ECTS credits for graduation. Students typically register for 30 credits in each of the eight semesters of study.

In case of an outgoing student planning to take a course for which RIT Croatia did not have an exact match, prior to mobility, the student develops a learning agreement with his/her faculty advisor and academic advisor. To determine credits to be allocated for courses followed abroad, we ask for information from the host institution (syllabus or similar course program); determine the degree of difficulty of the course; percentage of overlap of content and course-level student learning outcomes with similar courses in the student’s field of study at RIT Croatia. We then determine which course in our academic program is the closest match and the student is given the number of ECTS credits for that course. The student’s diploma supplement reflects the student’s mobility experience, course name and description.

Provided that the mobile students have satisfactorily completed all activities indicated in their learning and/or training agreements, RIT Croatia recognizes courses completed by accepting ECTS credits and grades following the procedure explained in Section C2 for outgoing students. Students’ mobilities are recorded on Diploma Supplements including the name of the receiving HEI or enterprise, length of stay, and names of courses studied or descriptions of the traineeship experiences. Incoming students are provided with course syllabi, a transcript of grades, and an explanation of grading structure. Appeals are adjudicated by the Associate Deans, Erasmus Coordinator, Career Services Manager, Academic Adviser, or another member of the academic staff.
