ECTS credits

Since 2005-2006, the ECTS credits are used in UAUIM as in all higher education institutions in Romania. ECTS credits allocation is based on the student workload needed in order to achieve expected learning outcomes.

Credits and previous learning are recognized according to the European practice and the UAUIM’s own regulations.

All disciplines are half-yearly. Each semester has 14 weeks of teaching activities. The assessment generally includes continuous and final evaluation procedures. During an academic year there are three examination periods: in January-February, in June-July and in September. For each theoretical discipline, two final examinations are set in two consecutive examination periods. The assessment of the design studio works follows specific procedures and regulations. The grades follow a scale from 1 to 10; the minimum grade to pass an exam is 5, except particular cases stipulated by specific regulations; for the graduation exam the minimum grade is 6.

Students who lack more than 20 ECTS credits are not permitted to enroll in the upper year of study. In order to retrieve missing ECTS credits, students have to follow a special registration procedure at the respective teaching Departments/Chairs, during the first month of the semester when the discipline will be taught.

The graduation work (dissertation, diploma projects) is guided by tutor(s); the graduation follows specific regulations and requires previous registration of the candidate.

The diploma projects are assessed by international juries which generally meet in July (first session) and March (second session).

The professional activity of the students is regulated by a set of specific regulations.

The academic year starts on October 1st and lasts until the middle of July. In September a second exam period for the disciplines in the 2nd semester is set.

Students need to register with the University on an annual basis; the registration procedures are usually scheduled at the beginning of October.
