ECTS at WSB-NLU

ECTS (The European Credit Transfer System) makes teaching and learning in higher education more transparent across Europe and facilitates the recognition of all studies. The system allows for the transfer of learning experiences between different institutions, greater student mobility and more flexible routes to gain degrees. It also aids curriculum design and quality assurance.

Nowy Sącz School of Business – National-Louis University (WSB-NLU) introduced the ECTS in 2000. The ECTS credits are granted to all students taking part in WSB-NLU programmes elements.

How are the ECTS credits calculated and distributed?

Each course is characterized by  a specific learning outcomes, which describe what a student is expected to know, understand and able to do after successful completion of a process of learning. Moreover, there is information of the types of applied activities to acquire certain knowledge and skills (lecture, class, conversatorium, seminar), as well as the assessed workload.

Workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, classes, student training, final tests and examinations) required to achieve the expected learning outcomes ( see an example below) . 1 ECTS credit is assigned to 25-30 h of student’s individual work. The curricula are prepared in such a way that the workload needed within one academic year equals 60 credit points.

Notes

1 ECT is worth 25-30 hours workload. Own work concerns. preparing for exams, lectures, mainly reading books, additional materials, and preparing homeworks

The workload of a student is systematically monitored. The estimation of an average student workload is verified through student questionnaires. If the assessment of workload for a given subject proves to be wrong, according to the results of student questionnaires, all necessary changes and  modifications are introduced into the study programme.

Grading system

As the ECTS credits reflect the quantity of work, ECTS grades represent the quality of work. ECTS grading scale has been developed in order to help institutions to transpose grades into their own evaluation system. In the case of WSB-NLU (cooperation with National-Louis University and offering Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration programme) three different trading scales are united.

The grading scale of the WSB-NLU is adjusted to the ECTS and NLU grading scale as follows:

European Policy Statement

Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu – National-Louis University in Nowy Sącz (http://wsb-nlu.edu.pl), Poland, is a non-public university registered by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education and accredited by the State Accreditation Committee. Since 1991 we have successfully been educating young people and helping them pursue their professional ambitions.

WSB-NLU cooperates with numerous universities all over the world. This cooperation mainly includes exchange of students and lecturers, organization of mutual scientific projects, participation in seminars and academic meetings, exchange of scientific publications and academic projects. Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu – National Louis University successfully applied for participation in Erasmus Program in 2001. We also participated in the other programs like LLP Socrates and Tempus Mundus. For years we have sent a lot of students to study abroad and we have hosted a lot of foreign students from for ex. Portugal, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Thailand, Cyprus, Hungary, Austria, Nigeria, India, Bangladesh and many others. The international student exchange is also based on bilateral agreements with China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus. 


Since the benefits of student and teaching staff exchange are clearly visible, one of the most important University's objectives is development of the Erasmus Program. The University also undertakes lots of measures to attract foreign Erasmus students and lecturers, to propose them the widest range of scientific offer and to help in their adaptation to new environment.


WSB-NLU is going to support the development of University staff both teaching and administrative, in various fields of their activity.
One of the projects that WSB-NLU has actively been involved in since 2007, being its shareholder, is a technological park called MMC Brainville. The purpose of the newly set-up company is to support the transfer of innovation between business circles and academia. This business development centre has been created in order to facilitate and enhance the development of ICT companies, to use the intellectual potential of young people, to create a network encouraging innovation in Poland, and to build the image of the region as a place of world-class innovative projects. 


To arouse student's interest in the Erasmus Program, the University publishes materials regarding the program, on University information boards and the web site. The Erasmus University Charter and the EPS are also displayed in places easily accessible for students. The web site is available in English, Russian and Ukrainian  as well, in order to facilitate access to all the necessary information to foreign students.
The University puts special emphasis on integration of disabled students and staff, who are encouraged to enter the University. They are provided with special innovations that help them adapt to the academic society and to facilitate their movements within the University, such as special elevators, bathrooms, adjusted seats in the classrooms, etc.

Please describe the practical arrangements agreed between the parties. Please specify also the monitoring and evaluation of the mobility(s) period as well as its recognition in the curriculum.


WSB-NLU is going to support student  mobilities as a very important part of students' education. Therefore WSB-NLU encourages its students to take part in the student Exchange program for studies or internship. The University helps its students in finding student internships in Polish and foreign companies, but also intends to persuade them to take part in international student exchange within the Erasmus Program.. The University decides on the criteria of accepting students for the Erasmus exchange program, based on their professional interests, knowledge of languages, GPA and their achievements. 


Each student going abroad for an exchange (SMS or SMP) will be obliged to sign a placement contract, concluded between the University, the company / university inviting and the student. There will also be a training agreement to be signed, which will describe the plan of the internship or Learning Agreement if they go to study. Another important document that the student will be supposed to sign is a standard quality commitment, where he undertakes an obligation to comply with all the rules regarding the mobility.
The University commits itself to recognize the internship period in the curriculum. The placements not provided for in curricula would also be presented in the diploma supplement.
All the information regarding student mobility (SMS or SMP) is easily accessible on the University's web site and information boards.
