Academic credit system

Within a course of one semester a student can earn on average 30 ECTS credit points, i.e. full 60 ECTS credit points per academic year, which amounts to the total of 180 ECTS credit points upon graduating from our undergraduate vocational study programme. The total of 60 ECTS credit points corresponds to the average total student´s workload within a forty-hour workweek during one academic year.
One ECTS credit point amounts to approximately 27 working hours. ECTS credit points encompass active teaching, exams and all other necessary activities relating to exams, and they are acquired by a student in the course of a semester. The amount of active teaching within a course does not necessarily correspond to the number of ECTS credit points it carries, provided that one honours the amount of student workload required by the respective number of ECTS credit points.
The acquired ECTS credit points are acknowledged only after a student passes exams, i.e. when he/she has fulfilled all requirements of a certain course, in accordance with the curriculum.
The manner in which ECTS credit points are allocated to individual courses is primarily based on the learning outcomes and student´s workload within a particular course. Accordingly, the complexity of the course subject matter and the frequency and number of activities expected from students to complete to earn their ECTS credit points constitutes a significant factor in ECTS credit point allocation. Hence, ordinarily, courses which directly deal with the field of pre-school education and upbringing (the fields of pedagogy, psychology, sociology...), due to the complexity of their objectives and outcomes, as well as to the number and scope of foreseen activities, carry more ECTS credit points than general education courses. Furthermore, courses within our accredited study programmes are generally divided into mandatory and elective.
Within each subject, there are pre-examination obligations and examinations. The total number of points in one course is 100. The pre-examination obligations can weigh less than 30 or more than 70 points. The number of points collected can be translated into a grade by distribution: from 51 to 60 equals grade 6, from 61 to 70 equals grade 7, 71 to 80 equals grade 8, from 81 to 90 equals grade 9 and from 91 to 100 equals grade 10. This grading scale is based on Article 104, of the Law on High Education (The Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia, Nos. 88/2017, 27/2018 - as amended and 73/2018). https://www.paragraf.rs/propisi/zakon_o_visokom_obrazovanju.html
