Same Course, Different ECTS Credits

I'm looking at doing a course and I see its available in two different IT's.
The qualification is the same in both institutions.

The course in IT no.1 gives 90 ECTS credits and the course in IT no.2 gives 70 credits.

Can anyone explain to me why there is a difference.

Thanks

It's difficult to say without knowing the context. At a guess, I'd say both are either Higher Diploma or Masters? Presumably the 90 credit is newer than the 70 credit, as you wouldn't get a 70 credit programme through a validation process these days.
