ECTS stands for 'European Community Course Credit Transfer System'. The ECTS guide makes the study program of the CHE transparent for all students who would like to have a period of study at the CHE. An ECTS guide can be used by all foreign students, not only those from Europe. We hope this guide will also be to the benefit for those students and faculty members who would like to be informed about the Ede Christian University in the Netherlands.

ECTS stands for 'European Community Course Credit Transfer System' and is part of the SOCRATES/ERASMUS Programme. One of the main aims of SOCRATES/ERASMUS is to promote academic recognition throughout the European Union so that it is easier for students to complete a portion of their studies abroad. This requires insight into the degree course programmes of the participating universities, as well as clarity on the allocation of credit points to the courses. As part of ECTS, an application at the CHE involves filling in a Student Application Form. A Learning Agreement will be drawn up which is based upon this form after contact with the International Office of the CHE. A Transcript of Records will be required to serve as guidance for credit transfer at the home university.
You can access the international application form on this web site (see below), or by writing to Lydia Willemsen at the contact address.
If you are considering enrolling in a regular curriculum at the CHE, there are several things you need to know. The first thing is to contact the international office about availability. Secondly, it is important to realize that admission to higher education is centrally administered in the Netherlands, and that there are national requirements, taking some time to enrol. For instance, international students must have a secondary school diploma to be equivalent tot he minimum diploma required of Dutch students. The CHE may also set additional requirements, such as affinity with the Christian identity of the university and knowledge of languages. The international office can provide you with details about all the formal procedures that precede registration. It is also possible to partake in individual modules on a per cost basis. In this case, it is important to first contact the international office.
