ECTS Information Package/Course Catalogue

The Information Package/Course Catalogue is "the most important ↑ECTS document. It should make study programmes easy to understand and compare for all students and staff […] and provide them with essential institutional, academic and practical information. […] The Information Package/Course Catalogue not only lists and describes the study programmes and their ↑course units and ↑modules, but also supplies all the information which a student needs to make up his/her mind as to whether or not to study at a certain institution, in a specific programme, or to take certain modules. […] The Information Package/Course Catalogue of the institution is to be published in the local language of instruction and in English (or only in English for programmes taught in English) on the Web and/or in hard copy in one or more booklets."[1] The ECTS Information Package/Course Catalogue must contain the following items: -  Part One: Information on the Institution (including the name and the address of the institution, the academic calendar, admission/registration procedures, etc.) -  Part Two: Information on degree programmes (including a general description and a description of individual course units) -  Part Three: General information for students (including information about the cost of living, accommodation, insurance, etc.)[2]
