It lasts for three years (180 ECTS) and not four (240 ECTS) like a Spanish degree because it follows the adaptation of the Bologna plan in France (three years – 180 ECTS) – Maîtrise (two years – 120 ECTS).

No, there isn’t. TBS adheres to the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) standards. Wherever you study, an ECTS credit will correspond to the same amount of work for the student. 60 ECTS must be earned each year. When you complete the Bachelor program, you earn 180 ECTS.
