The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a tool of the European Higher Education Area for making studies and courses more transparent. It helps students to move between countries and to have their academic qualifications and study periods abroad recognised.

ECTS allows credits taken at one higher education institution to be counted towards a qualification studied for at another. ECTS credits represent learning based on defined learning outcomes and their associated workload.

ECTS enhances the flexibility of study programmes for students. It also supports the planning, delivery and evaluation of higher education programmes. It is a central tool in the Bologna Process, which aims to make national education systems more comparable internationally. ECTS also helps make other documents, such as the Diploma Supplement, clearer and easier to use in different countries.

ECTS has been adopted by most of the countries in the European Higher Education Area as the national credit system and is increasingly used elsewhere.

Traditional schools and Universities are independent institutions. They may or may not recognize the diploma issued by UNIES but it would serve its purpose to prove to the University how serious you are in your studies.

Getting a job goes beyond presenting a diploma. The diploma will surely open new doors for you but it cannot guarantee a job placement. Even graduates of traditional learning institutions need to compete for a job. Landing your dream job would require academic qualification and credentials, experience and personal and professional skills. For sure you can get a job after finishing your studies with us, just be open minded enough that you need to also present your skills.

This means that we have designed our curriculum to fit the lifestyle of our learners. We will give you the assigned readings and assignment deadlines and then you work on them at your phase depending on your personal work schedule. Example: The deadline for a particular assignment is 2 weeks. If you want to finish the assignment in the first week so that you are free in the second week, you can. If you are very busy the first week and you can do your assignment in the second week, you may do so. The important thing to take into consideration is to make sure you can submit your requirements before the deadline.
