The Faculty of Law and Administration has adopted the European Credit Transfer Points System in all undergraduate programs. The Senate of Warsaw University took the decision to introduce ECTS already in 1997. The system has been incorporated into regular studies curricula and is fast in place now.
ECTS credits are a value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at a given institution.
ECTS credits are a relative value. In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload of a year of study, 30 credits are allocated to a semester and 20 credits to a term. The Warsaw University operates on a semester system.
ECTS is also in place for the School of Polish Law.
