ECTS credits

CFU (ECTS)?

What are they?

CFU (university learning credit) represents a manner for measuring the student workload in the Italian universities. This system was introduced by the university reform M.D. 3 November 1999 n. 509. To each university exam is associated a certain number of ECTS, conventionally 1 ECTS is equivalent to 25 study hours. In order to obtain the degree in Linguistic Mediation Science, the student needs to earn 180 credits (in accordance with the Ministerial Decree n. 38 10 January 2012) divided over three years. The really interesting aspect for those who want to enrol in this degree course is that the student will graduate soon, thanks to the recognition of ECTS related to previous academic careers (completed or suspended) and work experience concerning linguistic mediation.

Icotea doesn't recognize the credits previously acquired, except for the degree course.

CFU and Single subjects courses

In order to acquire any missing credit in one specific subject, you can enrol directly in one subject as single subject.

The credits you acquire are certified and valid according to the rules.

Students enroled in other Universities, AFAM or Academies can enrol in our single subjects as they are allowed from their Universieties.
