Convert Canadian ECTS Credits to German ECTS
A metric for assessing your academic program is called ECTS, which stands for European Credit Transfer System (ECTS points). Once you have translated Canadian ECTS Credits to German ECTS, it is easier to understand the work connected with your academic degrees.
The ECTS system is utilized for a wide range of degree structures, including part-time classes, online classes, and full-time classes. It has grown in popularity to the point where it currently accounts for 75% of all courses offered in European higher education institutions.
What Is the Purpose of the ECTS Credit Calculator and how do I Convert Canadian ECTS Credits to German ECTS?

- A whole academic year is equal to 60 ECTS credits.
- A two-year master’s degree program necessitates the completion of 120 ECTS credits.
- Based on a three-year bachelor’s degree program, 180 ECTS credits are awarded.

Is it possible to Convert Canadian ECTS Credits to German ECTS?
Yes, it is possible to transfer your credits from Canada to German universities. Students who wish to receive advanced standing must submit their official transcripts as well as the course syllabi for the courses they have already taken and plan to transfer for. The Canadian credits must be multiplied by two in order to translate to ECTS.
Most Anglophone universities in Canada follow a course and credit system similar to that in the United States. There is a 1:1 credit hour equivalent.
Institutions of higher education are urged to implement ECTS within the parameters of their institutional contract with the Commission.
