STUDY WITH UNIES
As the UNIES‘s programmes are focussing on lifelong learning for adults, freshmen, mid-career learners and full-time professionals with a view to sustainable development, the educational process is centred around their needs and requirements. Therefore, the study process is based on full-time and part-time study integrating combined didactical approaches. Educational delivery systems include residential studies, IT assisted learning (blended learning), and work-based-studies supported by systematic coaching or supervised by faculty and teaching staff.
Following the recommendations of the Bologna Follow-up Group and the Bologna-tuning Group, we offer the new, recommended structure of study programs. Bachelor's programs extend over a period of six (eight) semesters and Master's programs over a period of three semesters. Each student has to be enrolled into the first semester of the study program during which time, students may undergo our APL-Procedure (Accreditation of Prior Learning) and submit an application for exemption from certain modules/units. Up to 120 ECTS-Credits towards a Bachelor's degree may be granted for demonstrated proficiency, while for Master’s studies the amount of credits through exempted modules may vary. Doctoral students should contact the UNIES Registry for assessing their APL opportunities.
All courses are structured according to the Bologna reform on modules. A module is the connection of several courses related objectively to an educational unit, which will be completed and validated on proof of performance.
