Georgian National University SEU operates the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Credit is a unit that expresses the study load required for a student expressed in units of time - hours and which can be obtained after the achievement of learning outcomes. Credits are distributed among the components defined by the educational program and include the contact and independent hours required for the learning outcomes to be achieved with the specific component. Credit cannot be calculated by contact hours only. Contact hour refers to the time allotted for a student's educational activity, which is realized by the involvement of the staff implementing the educational program component, while the independent hour is the time specified for the student's educational activities, which does not include the involvement of the staff implementing the educational program component.
Student learning load is the time required to achieve the learning outcomes defined by the educational program. Student study load is based on independent and contact hours. In SEU, a student's workload for one academic year is 60 credits or 1500 hours, and one credit equals 25 hours. The student is entitled to accumulate additional credits during the academic year / semester, but not more than 75 credits per year.
The study component is one semester. The learning component with the same content, volume and learning outcome for students of all programs includes an equal number of credits. Credits are awarded based on the ability of the student with average academic achievement. The evaluation of the achievement of the learning outcomes of the components of the educational program should be completed in the same semester in which it was conducted.
A semester is a period of time that includes a combination of study weeks, an additional exam / exam period, and a student achievement assessment period for an additional exam/exam.
