Quasar Institute for Advanced Design follows an academic credit system (CFA) that has been defined by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) and complies with the ECTS model.
ECTS credits are an expression of the amount of learning a student must achieve based on well-defined outcomes and the associated workload. The latter may differ depending on the course type: theoretical or theoretical and practical. Workload generally ranges between 1500-1800 hours per academic year, therefore one credit corresponds to 25-30 hours of work on average.
One full-time academic year in a 1st level degree program consists of 60 ECTS credits (30 ECTS credits per semester).
Credits are awarded to individual students once they have completed the required learning activities and achieved the defined learning outcomes, via appropriate assessment.
