The main programme of bachelor’s or master’s studies includes 6 or 4 semesters respectively. Each semester includes 6 basic courses to be passed at the exams, which is mandatory for obtaining the diploma at this particular specialty. However, we never limit our students in case they wish getting any additional education in other fields. Therefore, the student may choose one or more additional courses and study them together with the basic courses. The list of all courses frequented and successfully completed will be given in the official transcript appended to the diploma.
16. How many courses may I select per semester?
Each student must complete 6 basic courses per semester. The number of additional courses which may be completed is unlimited.
17. May I pursue my studies at two or more specialties at once?
Definitely. UniMFA makes it possible for all students wishing to get two specialties at once. You may register for additional courses given in the list, or just register for second specialty.
18. What to do, if I cannot reach my tutor?
At UniMFA, this would never occur, as our specialty guarantors monitor the regular communication between the student and the tutor. However, in case your tutor is absent due to some reasons, our coordinator or another University employee will always gladly reply and help you.
19. What are the minimum and maximum deadlines for getting the bachelor’s degree?
The ordinary length of studies at the bachelor’s programmes makes up 3 years. In case that a student passes all exams in time or before the stipulated deadlines, the time of studies may be reduced to 2.5 years upon an individual application. In case the exams aren’t passed in time, the time of studies will grow respectively. The maximum time of studies at the bachelor’s programmes amounts to 5 years.
20. What are the minimum and maximum deadlines for getting the master’s degree?
The ordinary length of studies at the master’s programmes makes up 2 years. In case that a student passes all exams in time or before the stipulated deadlines, the time of studies may be reduced to 1.5 years upon an individual application. In case the exams aren’t passed in time, the time of studies will grow respectively. The maximum time of studies at the master’s programmes amounts to 4 years.
21. Is there any procedure for rejecting additional courses?
Students may register for additional courses optionally. If the student registers for a particular additional course, but fails to pay for it, he/she won’t gent the access to the materials for such additional course, and therefore may reject it. If the student registers for an additional course and pays for it, and thus is thereafter granted the access to such additional course, he/she may not reject it, and the amount paid will never be reimbursed!
22. How much does the process of enrolment and start of university studies take after the payment is made?
The enrolment at the University is done within 3 business days after the student pays the invoice, and the funds are credited to the University’s bank account. The studies always start on the 1st of the next month.
