Our university ( like all accredited Romanian universities ) is using the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)
The academic year starts between mid September and mid October, subject to the decision of each University Senate. Based on their institutional autonomy, universities may also decide on the academic schedule. Each year is divided into two semesters. Each semester lasts fourteen weeks. Students have a Christmas holiday, an Easter holiday, a holiday at the end of the first semester and a summer holiday.
Examination take place at the end of each semester. They may be oral or written. A reexamination period is scheduled before the beginning of the new academic year. Classes are held from Monday to Friday.
Usually, international students learn Romanian during the preparatory year. The candidates who speak Romanian can skip the preparatory year after having passed a test of Romanian language. The candidates who can formally prove that they have studied in Romanian for at least four years consecutively, do not need to pass the Romanian language test or to attend the preparatory year.
