Some Problems of Introducing European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) into Non-State Higher Institutions

Stepanov Victor Ivanovich


The article deals with theoretical and organizational problems of introducing European credit transfer system (ECTS) into Russian non-state higher institutions. The author has come to the conclusion that the introduction of ECTS gives rise to a lot of questions on the part of professors and students of higher educational institutions. It is noted in the article that when working out the conception of credit system for Russian higher school it is important to discuss principles of credit assessment of educational curriculum content on the basis of planning the results of its realization. The suggested idea is to give higher institutions an opportunity to work out experimental educational standards within the limits of cycle (and perhaps, course) structure of federal state educational standards.
