Degree Programs & Courses Language Courses

ECTS credits

ECTS credits are given for most German language courses. The prerequisite for being awarded ECTS credit points is regular attendance of the courses (80 % attendance), active participation as well as reaching the specified performance level.

Students at the University of Bern can have their German courses recorded as voluntary additional attainments, once concluded successfully, in their diploma supplement with ECTS credit points and grades.

If you visit the courses during an exchange or visiting semester, you have to clarify whether your home university will recognize the credit points.
