Creditpoints Conversion

Published Date:

Question: Dear Ms Verbitskaya
I am writing you from the University of Zurich in Switzerland in order to get some information about the credit system used at SPBU. I am not sure whether I'm adressing to you is the right way. If not I would be very glad if you could kindly forward my message to the responsible person.
I have a question regarding the credit system at your university. On the transcript of records of one of our students who now transfered from SPBU to Zurich different credit points are indicated. I would like to know if those credits are equal to the ECTS credit system and if you could provide a chart (or any other form of information) regarding the conversion of SPBU Credits into different credit systems such as the ECTS. Other than that information regarding the workload for one term / Bachelor degree would be very helpful.
I would appreciate your answer as soon as possible and would like to thank you in advance for your efforts.
With kind regards from Switzerland
