In this activity, which will be between 25 and 30 hours per credit, the time dedicated to teaching hours, study hours, tutorials, seminars, works, practices, projects, as well as those required for the preparation and completion of exams, will be included.

The advantage of the ECTS credits is that, since they are the same unit of measurement in all of the universities of the new European Higher Education Area, it is much easier to compare the academic load of the degrees, facilitating student mobility and the recognition of studies.
