Basic Information for Students

Bologna and ECTS



The structure of the ECTS study

ECTS scoring at the University of Zenica has been implemented in accordance with the guidelines of the European Commission for Implementation of the European Credit Transfer System which is based on the following principles:

  • Scoring has been implemented “form top to bottom” through setting a standard of 30 points per term on average. The 30 points include all the enrolled subjects: compulsory, elective and non-graded subjects since all of them contribute towards the load a student has to master during a term.
  • A student’s load includes the overall time a student has to spend on a successful mastering of the programmes. That means that it includes not only the time spent on attending lectures, seminars, field work and exercies but also the time spent on mastering the programmes, i.e. on individual studying, data processing after laboratory work, examinations and other knowledge tests.
  • A load coefficient turns into deserved points only upon passing an examination, i.e. fullfilling the requirements in accordance with the curriculum. The student meets all the obligations once he has passed a number of subjects so that the sum of the load coefficients (point) scores at least 30 per term.
  • All the courses at the Universtiy of Zenica are single-term courses.
  • A student obtains a three-year programme diploma with a minimum 180 ECTS score (f.e. BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgy and others – Bachelor of Science), with the 240 ECTS score (graduate engineer or graduate economist), and with the 300 ECTS score one obtains a diploma of a Master of Science.
