    ECTS Credit System of Study

    The credit system of studies is based on credit collection and transfer. Credits are allocated for the compulsory, elective and optional subjects, which you will take within the course of the particular study programme. The credits gained in the study courses at the home faculty are considered together with the periods of studies in another faculty of Matej Bel University or at other universities in the Slovak Republic and abroad.


    In accordance with the Study Regulations of Matej Bel University the number of lessons for full-time studies has been determined to be a maximum 22 hours a week. The number of lessons in external studies is four times the weekly number of lessons of full-time studies. The subjects in the recommended study plan have been formulated to respect the maximum weekly number of 22 hours and the minimum number of 2 credits for one subject.


    The subjects involved in the credit system are registered in the Academic Information System (AIS). In order to successfully complete your studies, you are obliged to complete all of the compulsory subjects of the study programme and to obtain the required number of credits for elective subjects. You can select the elective subjects yourselves based upon your own decision or upon the guidance of a credit coordinator at the corresponding faculty, out of the subjects offered by your faculty or another faculty of MBU.


    The elective courses include the subjects of another study programme offered by a faculty or other faculties of Matej Bel University. In the bachelor study, elective courses make up 10% of the number of credits while in the Master / Engineering study, they make up 15% of the number of credits. This means the elective subjects represent 6 credits in bachelor studies and 9 credits in Master / Engineering studies out of the total number of 60 credits per academic year.


    The deadlines for registration of the courses of the study programme are defined in the academic year time schedule. In the first stage, you subscribe to subjects within the faculty (April) and within MBU (May). The students in their first years of study following the admission subscribe to the selected subjects in accordance with the guidance of the respective faculty in August – September. More information on selecting subjects offered by another faculty can be found in Study guides published in the AIS. AIS enables the student to add a subject from the recommended study plan of the study program in his faculty and at the same time, to find a subject offered by another study program of the faculty and other MBU faculties. The maximum number of students subscribed to the subject can be determined by so called limitation. The range of subjects of the study programme and the determination of the number of students for one subject fall under the responsibility of the particular departments (department subject offer).


    The credit system allows students to follow a certain professional direction within the registered study program while creating space to expand students´ knowledge in the subjects not involved in his curriculum.


    Please, send any potential problems arising in connection with AIS enrolment and registration of subjects in electronic form to the AIS administrators in the faculty.
