      ECTS credit-equivalents

      Although we are not giving ECTS credits, many Universities allocate equivalents of ECTS credits for participation in the MSIT Winter School. We recommend that you make enquiries at your Institution. Four and a half days of participation is the equivalent of at least app. 36 hours including breaks.
