At University of Zakho the ECTS for any module can be
calculated based on hours that the module needs per week. If a module has
theoretical (*T*) hours per week and practical/tutorial (*PT*) per week, the ECTS
will be calculated as follows:

Theoretical hours per week (*TperW*) will multiply by 1.5
(Workload hours/Week), then the results will be add to the *TperW*, i.e.,

Where
*TH* refers to Theoretical Hours.

If
the module has practical/tutorial (*PT*) hours, then the total number of hours of
*PT *will be divided by 2 and then will be added to Eq. (1) as follows:

Where
*TPH* refers to Theoretical and Practical Hours.

Where *TT* refers to total hours per semester.

The result of Eq. (3) becomes semester based and will be divided by 25 hours as each ECTS is equivalent to 25 hours of classes and self-study. Hence

*TperW*) and 2 hours as a practical (

*PT*) per week. First applying Eq. (1) as follows:

This was the result of the total number of hours per week. Now, to calculate the total number of hours per semester, Eq.(3) needs to be applied as follows:
