      The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was developed to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides a way of measuring and comparing academic merits, and transferring them from one institution to anotherYour ECTS Learning Agreement is the contract between you, your home institution and the University of Huelva about what you can study while on exchange. Non European exchange students will need to check with their home institution to find out how these credits will transfer to their home degree.

       You should check that you don’t enrol for subjects that run on an annual basis if you are staying for one semester only. Students must formalise their enrolment at the International Office and fill in the Hoja de Matrícula (Subject Registration Sheet). You will be given an appointment for registration at the International Office during orientation where you should go with a copy of your passport or identity card, evidence of health insurance or European health card, the blank second sheet of your  Learning Agreement (do not complete it until you have matriculated).
