Academic System

In estimating students’ workload, we consider the total time needed by students in order to achieve the desired learning outcomes. Students are awarded ECTS credits only when appropriate assessment has shown that they have achieved the required learning outcomes for a component of a programme or for the qualification. An average workload of a full time study year is 60 ECTS, the minimum credits per semester system is 30 ECTS) as well as the system of pre-defined courses that the student must succeed in with the minimum grade they must achieve in each lesson depending on the accredited study program.

ECTS estimates the workload of a full time student during each semester (30 ECTS per semester). The workload of a full time study program rises from about 1500 to 1800 hours of workload per student per year and in these cases one credit unit ECTS equals to approximately 25-30 hours of workload. The students receive the ECTS credit after successfully completing the required work and assessment of the learning outcomes (the total of the knowledge, abilities and skills the students must possess, understand or be in a position to undertake after the successful completion of the specific study program. The workload of each student within the ECTS includes the required time for the completion of a specific course which constitutes of seminars, independent study, assignment preparation, exams, practice, etc.

Diploma Supplement (DS)

The Institution issues the Diploma Supplement (DS) to accompany every degree successfully completed by a student. The Supplement will include a record of the period of mobility under the Erasmus+ Programme. Each mobile graduate receives the DS free of charge.
