Credit hours and qualification levels

 

First: The University operates on the credit hours system in measuring the level of accumulation of knowledge and skills achieved by the student within the framework of their program, and in the calculation of the average time they need to obtain the certificate.

Second: One academic year (in the semester system) is in average equivalent to 60 credit hours in the European Credit Transfer System ECTS and is called the annual average of the credit hours. (The method of calculating credit hours for one course).

Third: The credit hours for one course are not divided and the student is given the result of their success in the course of the whole credit hours.
