ECTS, three-cycle system, M1, M2, …. What can these terms possibly mean, when describing higher education in France and in Europe?
The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS )
In the EU, the international validation and recognition of degrees and courses is based on a common credits system (European Credit Transfer System). The ECTS credits obtained by any student can be capitalized and transferred, e.g. if the student’s academic pathway involves several universities. 1 ECTS corresponds to 25 to 30 hours (in classroom + personal work).
The three-cycle system
French higher education degrees are organized according to a common European structure composed of
three cycles (Bachelor-Master-PhD). This takes into account years or semesters validated since entering higher education (and their corresponding ECTS):
- Bachelor = 6 semesters (180 ECTS)
- Master = 4 semesters (120 ECTS)
- PhD = 6 semesters
Master Year 1 – Year 2
The master course, which can be entered after completing a bachelor degree, is obtained with 4 validated semesters, i.e. 120 ECTS. Master studies are completed within 2 years usually called “M1” (1st year) and “M2” (2nd year). The national master degree awarded is accredited by the National Higher Education and Research Evaluation Agency (AERES).
Several EHESP masters are co-accredited or delivered in partnership. A co-accreditation means that two higher education institutions deliver and sign the degree jointly.
The “advanced master” is a post-master degree of 2 semesters minimum, based on lectures, individual research work within a company or organization, the writing of a professional thesis and a viva. The “specialist master” is accredited delivered by the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (CGE)”.
