7.Organization of the credit mobility recognition and pre-training process

Recognition of the results of previous studies at the University is based on a fundamental principle, without forcing the degree-seeking student to study the same subject twice. Each degree-seeking student forms his / her competences, regardless of where and how he / she received them, and without compromising the quality of education and educational qualifications.

Transfer of educational achievements from other universities is carried out according to procedures and ECTS documents (application form of the student, training agreement, transcript of records).

8.Principles of assigning ECTS credits (institutional framework of credits)

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.

The ECTS system is based on the evaluation of all types of student’s work necessary to achieve the goal specified in the curriculum: attending lectures, preparing and participating in seminars and practical classes, independent work, exams, internships, preparation and defence of qualification works.

9.Information on Advisory assistance given to degree-seeking students

10.Organization of the educational process

Organization of the educational process

The organization of the educational process is determined by the working curriculum and schedule of classes approved by the first Vice-rector of the University. The process of teaching disciplines is based on the logical and structural scheme, according to which the study of a new specific discipline should have been provided with the knowledge gained from the study of previous disciplines. All fundamental disciplines are planned in such a way that each discipline includes a lecture and practical component of the course. All disciplines and practices are provided with syllabi of study. The content of the syllabi meets the requirements of the educational program and curriculum. In the specified terms before the beginning of a term the schedule of classes is made, and in a month before the end of a term schedules of test and examination sessions are set up. Each term the teaching staff of the Department carries out comprehensive tests to check the level of students’ knowledge after studying each discipline. Complex tasks in the form of tests provide an opportunity to test the theoretical knowledge of the disciplines and the ability to use them for solving practical problems. The departments of the University practice various forms of independent work for  students: preparation of written and oral assignments for classroom studies; work with dictionaries; study of primary sources; making reports on specific sections of disciplines; independent study of certain sections of disciplines and the like.
