ERASMUS Incoming Students

 

1. NOMINATION FROM HOME UNIVERSITY:

After the selection in your university, you are nominated as an exchange student by your home university. This implies that your home university has an exchange agreement (Erasmus) at either a central or faculty level, with the University of Bucharest (UB). The exchange agreement stipulates that the study period in the signating institutions will be mutually recognised.

The first step for any exchange student interested in coming to UB from abroad is always to contact the International Co-ordinator from your university.

Your home International Office must sends us the official nomination by e-mail to intcoop@unibuc.eu, with the details about your study in the University of Bucharest:

- your name,

- period of study,

- subject / field of study,

- year of study and level (undergraduate / postgraduate / doctoral),

- your e-mail address.

You will get a registration certificate for the secretary of the faculty where you will study.

At the faculty, you will receive a student ID of great help during your stay in Romania.

Then you must contact the ERASMUS Responsible from that faculty in order to decide the list of courses to follow here.

 

 3. ROMANIAN LANGUAGE COURSE FOR ERASMUS STUDENTS

For the ERASMUS students only, the University of Bucharest offers during the academic year a Romanian language course which is composed of three groups: beginners 1(French speaking students), beginners 2 (English speaking students) and intermediate (normally held for exchange students who have studied Romanian before coming to Romania). Each module lasts for one semester and it is evaluated through two language tests: an oral and a written one (6 ECTS awareded). Each semester, there are at least one beginner’s and one intermediate modules starting. You will attend this course in the same period of time with your usual courses at UB and only if you are an Erasmus student at our university.

The Romanian language course starts in:

-          October (for the autumn semester)

-          February (for the spring semester)

If you choose to participate in this course, you will also receive a Romanian language manual, from the Erasmus Department, as soon as you arrive at UB.

The Romanian language course and the Romanian language manual are free of charge for all Erasmus students.

The University of Bucharest DO NOT organise the Erasmus Intensive Language Course (EILC) in September 2014 for the academic year 2014-2015.


4. ACADEMIC CALENDAR

Academic year – October 1st – June/July (depending on each faculty’s schedule)

Semesters – two per year (14 weeks each). National standards set the total class time per week at 24 to 28 hours.

Autumn Semester – begins on the 1st of October. It includes a Christmas holiday from December 20th till January 5th. It usually ends in February, after the winter exam session.

Spring Semester – starts at the beginning of March. It includes the Easter holiday and a four-week exam session in May-June. It ends in July, but the exact date varies from one faculty to another, depending upon the duration of the practical activities in each of them.

5. CREDIT SYSTEM

The standard unit of study is the semester. The normal load of a semester is conventionally 30 credits. The convention of 30 credits/semester was chosen to adjust to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The credits assess the normal volume of a student's work.

The credit system makes it possible:

- to compare curricula and recognize the compact periods of study in other units

- to build flexible programmes in the curriculum

- to include new subjects in the curriculum.
