CURRICULUM FEATURES:

  • This curriculum was developed under the Ordinance on the state requirements for the acquisition of higher education and educational qualification degrees (Bachelor, Master and Specialist) of 2002 , and as of the 2004/2005 academic year, it also complies with Ordinance No 21 of 30.09.2004 on the adoption of a credit transfer and accumulation system in the higher education institutions. It was elaborated by a committee involving the heads (or authorised representatives) of departments, it was subject to discussion within each department, accepted by the Faculty Council and approved by the Academic Council.
  • One academic year consists of three trimesters (Autumn, Winter and Spring). 
  • Each trimester, contact hours are spread over 10 weeks for full-timers and 3 weeks for part-timers
  • The curriculum contains mandatory courses which are fundamental for the speciality.  Elective courses add to the specialisation of students’ training in a related field of study chosen by students. Optional courses provide students with knowledge in various fields, such as mathematics, business, law, psychology, modern languages, etc.
  • If a student has taken exams in more elective courses than required, they are duly entered in the Diploma. Optional or elective courses can also be ones which are not on the curriculum, but in which the student has taken exams at FMI of Plovdiv University or at another faculty or university in case of transfer), as well as during specialisation in the country or abroad within academic exchange programmes.
  • Each program ends with either a written State Exam or thesis defence 
  • Assessment takes place either during exam sessions following each trimester or during continuous assessment throughout a trimester.
  • 1 ECTS credit corresponds to ca. 22 ½ hours of student load (= 30 periods of student workload: contact  + non-contact).
