It thus offers a better readability of European national curricula, the same time facilitating the mobility of a country to another and from one institution to another. So this system is primarily used to facilitate the establishment of partnerships between institutions in different countries by providing a common principle description of educational programs. 

​The hours / credit report for a discipline of study reflects the importance of this discipline, the difficulty of learning and that the students are asked to.
