ECTS : beginners question

Hi all,
A very dummy question.

Can ECTS awarded by 1 swiss university be combined with ECTS from another one to claim a Masters ?

e.g. Lets say ETH awards a MAS in Finance with 60 ECTS

A) ECTS from St Gallen CAS (finance domain) = 25
B) ECTS from Uni zurich (Finance domain) = 25
C) Masters thesis at ETH (finance domain) = 10

If I approach ETH after achieving A) & B) and request them to allow me to do C) and award me MAS in finance after successful completion of C) - will they allow that ?

If yes, can the ECTS from multiple domains (lets say finance & social science or finance and IT) be combined to request for a masters (lets say finance) as well ?

Apologies again for the dummy question.
Thank you for your help.

This likely differs from Uni to Uni and Masters to Masters program. I would recommend contacting the program at ETH directly and stating your case and question.

Re: ECTS : beginners question

The transfer credits and acceptance depends on individual programs. There is a protocol to see what credits for what course can count towards a certain degree. Contact their study department, show them all the transcripts.

It is not a dummy question. It is a daily bread for students who transfer between universities. Just don't count on having a masters program designed la carte according to all the credits you've already acquired.
