Earning credits while studying abroad in Taiwan

The majority of courses at Shih Chien University are worth 2 or 3 local credits. In Taiwan, 18 teaching hours is valued as 1 credit. The 2-credit courses are organized once a week, whereas the 3-credit courses are organized twice a week over a semester of 18 weeks.

During the semester, students can earn up to 25 local credits. Bachelor-level students are required to complete courses worth a minimum of 9 credits per semester. The minimum requirement for Master-level students is 6 credits per semester.

One Taiwanese credit corresponds to 2 ECTS. One completed course, therefore, most often converts to 4 – 6 ECTS credits depending on the total workload. When transferring credits, students should also take into account the work and time required for self-study, exercises, group work, preparing for quizzes and exams and the quizzes and exams themselves.
