The educational process at ISUH is based on the principles of the European credit transfer-accumulation system. Accounting of academic time, the proportion of disciplines in the curriculum and the amount of knowledge gained at the University is estimated in conventional units – credits. The total number of ECTS credits of training specialists with a bachelor degree is 240, with a master degree is 90. One credit corresponds to 30 academic hours of classroom studies and independent work to master the discipline. The number of disciplines within the academic year is no more than 16, and in the term is no more than 8. The number of summative assessments in the form of an exam within one term is no more than 4. The total amount of a discipline is a minimum of 4 ECTS credits. The amount of ECTS credits planned for the study of the discipline within one term is usually 30 ECTS credits.
