Iselinge Hogeschool adheres to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. This means that each study year has a study load of sixty credits, which equals sixty times twenty-eight hours. A study year is divided into four periods, which each comprise fifteen credits. Credits are allocated to a course based on the following considerations:
1. time students will (on average) spend on preparing for and attending lectures, seminars, workshops, and excursions;
2. time students will (on average) spend on preparing for and attending examination.
The exam committee oversees the process of allocating and converting credits. A separate committee (the EVC Bureau) is responsible for recognition of earlier acquired competencies and awarding credits in this context.
