ECTS credits are based on total work load, not just "contact hours", which are the basis for most US semester credits. A "standard credit load" for one semester in ECTS units is 30, while a typical load in US semester credit hours is about 15 (or a bit more). Therefore, a conversion of 2 ECTS credits = 1 US semester credit is reasonable, on average. Due to different schemes of detailed accounting, this may not be quite right for any particular course, but is pretty close on average. more
