UACS employs the ECTS system with all prescribed requirements in all levels and programs. Credit currency is based on Notional Learning Time (NLT). Most of the courses hold a 6-credit or 8-credit value. Courses designated with 6 ECTS include at least 40 hours of lectures by a professor, 6-10 hours of time devoted to formal direct assessment, 6-10 hours of practical training, 40 hours for project and research, 40 hours for independent study and minimum 10 hours of internship. Typical course of 6 ECTS provides at least 150 hours of NLT. Taken in its entirety, an 8 ECTS course provides students with 200 hours of NLT. By general rule, 1 ECTS involves 25-30 hours of NLT. International or mobility students at UACS will encounter the same methodology of assessment, grading and NLT as they would in any school participating in the Bologna process.
