2. methodology of academic credit system
Euro-Balkan University has introduced ECTS in the accademic year 2007 with the accreditiation of its first graduate program and since then it is ECTS compatible.
According to ECTS credits are calculated by the total number of hours, which means the time that students typically need to complete all activities associated with the acquisition of curriculum, expressed in number of classes. The total load includes lectures, exercises, project assignments, independent work, homework, reading literature, colloquia and final exams. The load is calculated according to the following formula:
1 credit corresponds to 30 hours of student workload in one semester. 30 credits correspond to 900 hours of total student workload during a semester.
The requirements which every student must meet to successfully complete the curriculum and to obtain the appropriate number of credits are as follows:
For each module at undergraduate level you can obtain a
maximum of 100 points, 20 (max.) of which from the first exam test, 20 (max.)
from the second exam test, 10 (max.) from regular attendance, 10 (max.) from
activity, 10 (max.) from a seminar work and 30 (max.) from the final exam. For
each module at graduate level the maximum of 100 points comprises two
presentations (max 20 points each) and a final paper (max 60 points).
3. Our institution's language policy for mobility
The language policy of Euro-Balkan University gives support to students and staff by organizing intensive weekly courses in Macedonian as a foreign language and other Balkan languages (4 per week). These courses are tailored for students with no prior knowledge of Macedonian or other South Slavic and Balkan languages. The aim of the course is to provide the students with the basic language skills necessary for their easier integration into the new environment, but also for academic purposes (library studies, interviews etc). The duration of the course is 2-3 months and it leads to a certificate.
Our mobility policy is based on providing courses in Macedonian language for foreign students, which are conducted by The Center for Balkan languages, within the Euro-Balkan University. The Center provides basic language courses (all Balkan languages) for foreign students who come to study under the Erasmus charter. We do not examine our students for their English language skills, because basic knowledge of the language is listed as a condition for our graduate students and advanced knowledge for postgraduate students.
4. Mechanisms for recognise mobility achievements for study and traineeships in enterprises.
Upon completion of their courses at “Euro-Balkan” Institute, all incoming students receive a Transcript of Records listing all courses they attended with credits and marks in the ECTS system. Results and credits obtained abroad by outgoing students are also recognized and registered in the ECTS system. The ECTS credits obtained at Erasmus partner institutions will be fully acknowledged by the University’s Credit Transfer and the Committee for mobility agreements.
The Student Office is responsible for the translating of the activities of participants in the program, according to the formula for allocating academic credits.
