ECTS AND THE UNIVERSITY OF LA LAGUNA
                                       4
This information package describes the University of La Laguna and the courses offered by its
Faculty of Medicine in order to help the prospective ECTS (ERASMUS-SOCRATES) student to
prepare his/her study period in this institution.

 What is ECTS?
ECTS stands for "European Union Course Credit Transfer System". ECTS is a pilot project
forming part of the ERASMUS-SOCRATES Programme (European Union Action Scheme for
the Mobility of University Students). One of the main aims of ERASMUS is the promotion of
academic recognition throughout the European Community -and, as from the academic year
1992/93, between an EU member state and any country belonging to the European Free Trade
Association (EFTA)- in order to allow students to follow part of their study programme abroad.

  How does ECTS work?
ECTS has been introduced for a maximum 6-year pilot phase extending from the academic year
1989/90 to the academic year 1994/95 and forming part of the ERASMUS programme (European
Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students). Five subject areas have been selected to
test ECTS mechanisms: Business Administration, Chemistry, History, Mechanical Engineering
and Medicine, and 145 higher education institutions participate in the scheme, each of them with
one faculty or department. The Faculty of Medicine of the University of La Laguna has been
selected by the EU to participate in ECTS in the field of Medicine. Under SOCRATES the use of
ECTS is encouraged and an increasing number of institutions is expected to make their courses
available according to the ECTS rules. ECTS is a decentralised system based upon the principle
of mutual trust and confidence between the participating higher education institutions. The few
rules of ECTS, concerning information (on courses available), agreement (between the home and
host institutions) and the use of credit points (to indicate student workload) are set out to
reinforce this mutual trust and confidence. Each ECTS department will describe the courses it
offers not only in terms of content but also adding credits to each course.

 The allocation of credit points courses
ECTS is a credit system based on student workload. Student workload involves lectures,
practices and self study. It includes all work needed to prepare for an examination. The basic
allocation of academic credits in ECTS is 60 credits per year of study or 30 credits per semester
or 20 credits per trimester/term. It is important that no special courses will be set up for ECTS
purposes, but that all ECTS courses are mainstream courses of the participating institutions, as
followed by home students under normal regulations. According to the student workload of the
courses offered, it is up to the participating institutions to subdivide the credits for the different
courses. Practical placements and optional courses which form an integral part of the course of
study also receive academic credit. Practical placements and optional courses which do not form
an integral part of the course of study do not receive academic credit. Non credit courses may,
however, be mentioned in the transcript of records. Credits are awarded only when the course has
been completed and all required examinations have been successfully taken.


 ECTS students
                                                                                                    5
The students participating in ECTS will receive full credit for all academic work successfully
carried out at any of the ECTS partner institutions and they will be able to transfer these
academic credits from one participating institution to another as long as there is prior agreement
between the institutions involved. All students of the participating departments who are willing
to take part in the ECTS may do so if their institution agrees and within the limit of available
places. Most students participating in the ECTS will go to one single host institution in one
single EU member state, study there for a limited period and then return to their home institution.
Some may decide to stay at the host institution and finish their degree there. Some may also
decide to proceed to a third institution to continue their studies. In each of these three cases,
students will be required to comply with the legal and institutional requirements of the country
and institution where they take their degree. When the student returns and has successfully
completed the study programme previously agreed between the home and the host institutions,
credit transfer will then take place, and the student will continue the study course at the home
institution without any loss of time or credit. If, on the other hand, the student decides to stay at
the host institution and to take his/her degree there, he/she may have to adapt his/her study course
due to the legal, institutional and departmental rules in the host country, institution and
department.

The EU is providing 10 student mobility grants (100 months of studies) per year for each
participating department. The selection of students who will receive these grants will be carried
out by each institution. Students may only be awarded grants if they fulfil the general conditions
of elegibility for the ERASMUS-SOCRATES grant. These are:

• students must be citizens of one of the EU member states or citizens of one of the EFTA countries (or
recognised by one member state or one EFTA country as having an official status of refugee or stateless
person or permanent resident), as to EFTA nationals, students will be eligible provided they are moving
within the framework of ERASMUS-SOCRATES from the respective EFTA home country to an EU
member state. EFTA nationals registered as students in ECTS participating institutions in other EFTA
countries or in UE member states are only eligible for participation in ECTS if they have established a
right of permanent residence;
• students shall not be required to pay tuition fees at the host institution, the student may however, be
required to continue to pay his/her normal tuition fees to the home institution during the study period
abroad;
• the national grant/loan to which a student may be entitled for study at his/her institution may not be
discontinued, interrupted or reduced while that student is studying in another member state and is
receiving an ERASMUS-SOCRATES grant;
• one study period abroad should not last less than three months or more than one year;
• students in the first year of their studies are not eligible for receiving ERASMUS-SOCRATES grants.

THE CANARY ISLANDS
                                   8
The Canary Island archipelago is both the most western point of Spain and the most southern
point of Europe. Consisting of seven large islands and 6 smaller islets, it is situated in the
Atlantic ocean off the coast of Africa, a short distance from the Tropic of Cancer. The
archipelago's privileged geographical location makes it an important meeting point for different
peoples and cultures, as well as a compulsory stop-over on intercontinental routes and
communications between Europe, Africa and America. With their pleasant climate (average
annual temperature of 20ºC) and breath-taking scenery, together with the hospitable and
easy-going nature of the local population, the islands are an extremely attractive year-round
resort.

Tenerife is the largest of the seven islands. It is volcanic and mountainous, and home to the Teide
summit which is 3.760 metres high. It is an island of striking contrasts, in which lush valleys
coexist with rocky coastlines. The island's administrative capital is Santa Cruz of Tenerife and a
mere stones-throw away is the second largest city, San Cristóbal de La Laguna, where the
university is located. La Laguna dates back to the 15th century and, with its impressive palaces,
churches and convents, is a city steeped in history and tradition.

THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN FERNANDO DE LA LAGUNA
The University of La Laguna, situated in the city of the same name, is a public institution with its
own legal personality and possessions. It provides a public service to the Canaries by offering
higher education to the local population.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
University activities in the Canaries go back as far as 1701, year in which a higher education
centre was created in Tenerife by Papal decree. In 1744 this centre changed its name to the
Ecclesiastical University of San Agustín. In 1792 Charles IV issued a Royal Decree establishing
in San Cristóbal de La Laguna a University of Letters which subsequently became what is today
the University of La Laguna. In 1992 we have celebrated the 200 anniversary of our University.

STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZATION
The University, which is spread across several campuses, offers degree and diploma courses in
the following fields: Fine Arts, Biology, Economics and Business Studies, Information Sciences,
Law, Pharmacy, Philology, Philosophy, Psychology, Education Sciences, Geography, History,
Mathematics, Medicine, Chemistry, Physics, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Primary Teacher Training,
Nautical and Sea Studies, Computer Science, Labour Relations, Agronomics and Architecture.

Research and teaching are coordinated by the university's 54 departments. The university has
21.000 enrolled students, 1.400 teaching staff and almost 600 administration and services staff. It
also has a number of General Services which provide departments and centres with teaching and
research support. These services include: Radioactive laboratories. Cryogenics Service. Animal
house. Image and multimedia laboratory. Glass-blowing workshop. Mechanical repair workshop.
Calibration and maintenance laboratory. Computer science service. Teledocumentation centre.
Translation office. Publications department.

In addition to the libraries located in the different faculties, centres and schools, the university
                                                                                                  9
has a large general Library. The General Library houses an Old Collection which comprises the
university's bibliographical treasures, including important manuscripts and incunabula; a
Canarian Collection, which is the largest and most varied of its kind; a General Collection with
more than 65.000 modern volumes, and a Periodicals Collection.

OTHER INFORMATION

Accommodation and Reception
In order to make life easier for our students, the university has created a Student Guidance
Service from where leaflets and other information on various aspects of the university can be
obtained. A great deal of attention is paid to finding suitable accommodation for visiting
students. The university currently has three halls of residence which cater for 600 students.
