On April 8th 2019 a delegation of 22 lecturers and staff members from Erbil polytechnic university has traveled to Lebanon in order to participate a workshop on European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).
ECTS credits represent the workload and defined learning outcomes (“what the individual knows understands and is able to do”) of a given course or programme. 60 credits are the equivalent of a full year of study or work. In a standard academic year, 60 credits would be usually broken down into several smaller components.
The University is willing to implement the system after the end of the workshop that, lasts for six days.
