Course Content

The basic unit of studies is a course. The amount of study necessary to complete a course is expressed in the assigned number of credits (henceforth credit value). The credit value of each course or group of courses or stage of studies is determined in line with the ECTS principles.

A condition for completion of study in each of the programmes, fields of study or specialisations is the acquisition of credits awarded for completing the courses within a prescribed plan, the overall count of which reaches at least the minimum credit value of studies that is set at thirty times the standard length of studies in a programme expressed in semesters. For the programmes that combine multiple fields of study the minimum credit value is set as weighted average value calculated for each field of study. The weight of the value calculated for the field of study, is defined by the recommended number of credits that represents the field of study in the combination, or is determined in the programme. The credits received during studies in programmes including the lifelong learning programmes held at MU are included into all concurrently studied programmes.

For the purposes of these Rules, courses and groups of courses that are parts of the programmes held at MU, at the MU faculties or at other institutions of higher education, are classified as required, selective, or elective. Required courses are those whose completion as well as the prescribed manner of completion is mandatory. Selective courses are those included in a required group of courses. Required groups of courses are sets of courses from which it is mandatory to complete a certain number of them, including the prescribed manner of completion, or a minimum number of credits. Other courses are elective in relation to the study.

For the purposes of study credit value, only credits for courses the content of which is not identical or substantially overlapping may be recognized. For particular elective courses for which the content of study activities is substantially different each time the course is offered, the Dean of the faculty holding the programme may allow repeating the course more than once during the period of studies, and the accumulation of credits thus acquired.

Examination regulations, assessment and grading

Completion of a course means meeting its requirements in a manner of the following:

* course-unit credit,
* colloquium,
* examination,
* graded course-unit credit.

The due dates of completion of courses are made public by the Examiner or the examination board Chairperson or another academic staff member appointed by the Dean in IS MU at least two weeks prior to the beginning of examination period. The number of dates of course completion must comply the type and form of course completion, number of enrolled students and course characteristic resulting from the requirements for course completion.
