ECTS and supporting documents

Use of ECTS is supported by documents based on the principles outlined in this Guide. This section suggests the elements to be included in these documents, as they represent a widely used and accepted way of communicating information which is useful for all students (including mobile and non-mobile students), academic and administrative staff, employers and other stakeholders.

To serve the needs of students, institutions should record their achievements in a transparent way which may be easily understood. Therefore, this Guide provides the information items that should be included in the main mobility documents, in order to foster better understanding between different institutions and countries, internal and external stakeholders.
