Medical University Transfer
Medical University Transfer: based on ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), most of medical University partners accept medical student transfer from accredited university.Thanks to ECTS system, medical transfer students can move from one faculty (medicine, dental medicine - dentistry, pharmacy etc. in English, French, Romania, Bulgarian etc.) in Europe .
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System is the system used by universities and higher education institutions in the mobility context across the European Union and other collaborating European countries. It is used to draw up the study contract between the student, the host institution and the home institution, each course being credited with an ECTS value. Like credits, the ECTS weighting for each course is calculated according to the overall volume of work required of the student; it is not limited exclusively to hours attending courses.
The course programmes are presented in credits or ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). A credit is a unit corresponding to the workload of a student for a module, within the course programme. It takes into account the hours spent in lectures but also the practical work, seminars, laboratory work, work experience, individual work, research and practices, etc.
The numerical value between 1 and 60 allocated to each course expresses the total amount of work which the student must put in for the course, including attendance at theoretical and practical classes, seminars and laboratory sessions as well as placements, research work or prices, and individual work - in the library or at home. The time needed for exams and other assessment methods is also included in the calculation. ECTS is closely related to other efforts to modernise higher education in Europe.
In the context of ECTS, 60 credits represent one academic year's work and in general, 30 credits are equivalent to a term's study.
Medical Transfer Students application
As international medical transfer student for placement in advanced year of the academic program, you have to follow the same admission in the same way as for the new student unless he has been studying in Romania before.
As international transfer student, after your arrival in Romania, you will be assessed individually by a committee of professors at the university who take into account various criteria. So we cannot tell you in advance in which academic year your will be placed in.
The professors committee will match your credits to the program in Romania and then make a list of "difference" subjects/credits that you will have to complete (in case of need) to get on level with the Romanian program. This commission decides for 100% upon the papers you bring in, so it is advisable to present the most complete documentation of your previous School or University results.
Each outstanding subject credit must be recovered via a difference exam. These exams are taken at the faculty at an agreed upon date. You cannot advance to the next year if you have more than 5 difference exams; or lacks a subject that is a pre-requisite for the preceding year.
In Romania you can apply for a transfer up to the 5th year for the study program of 6 years. 4th year transfers would usually be coming from a university where they completed 4 years of study or more. For the study program of 4 years, you can apply for transfer up to third year. You need at list 2 years at Romanian university in order to have un Romanian diploma.
It is also possible for someone who completed 3 years of study to get accepted into the 4th year of the Romanian program if the course structure at the previous university was closely matched to the Romanian program.
