European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is a student-oriented credit system based on the workload of the student. It is a value that represents all the studies (including theoretical courses, practical courses, seminars, independent studies, examinations, assignments, etc.) that a student needs to complete in order to be successful in a course.

ECTS is one of the most important aspects of the application phase of Bologna Process in Turkey. In recent years, many universities in Turkey changed their programmes and curricula and intensified their efforts to adjust their credit and grading systems to ECTS principles.

Tekirdağ Namık Kemal University has prepared this specially designed ECTS Information Guide with the aim of clarifying details about the academic programmes and understanding of education at TNKÜ, which have been founded in conformity with Bologna Process. Each detail in the ECTS Information Guide regarding the implementation of ECTS credits for courses, student workloads, evaluation process, and so on as well as the relation of all these components with each other has been explained step by step.

All the information provided in the ECTS Information Guide is a complete package which integrates the National Qualifications as defined by the Higher Education Council of Turkey (YÖK) and their compatibility with the implementation of Bologna Process.

The beneficiaries of this web site will be able to access not only the programmes offered at TNKÜ along with course description and curriculum, but also the general information about the student life and extracurricular activities both at our University and in the city of Tekirdağ.
