Types and levels of study
Academic studies enable cadets to develop and apply scientific and professional knowledge. According to the level of studies, there are: Undergraduate Academic Studies - first level; Master's Academic Studies and Specialist Academic Studies - second level and Doctoral Academic Studies - third level.
Undergraduate Academic Studies carry beween 180 to 240 ECTS depending on the duration of studies (three or four years), and Master's Academic Studies carry a minimum of 60 ECTS, when the number of ECTS from the Undergraduate Studies is 240, or 120 ECTS when that number is 180 ECTS. Specialist Academic Studies carry at least 60 ECTS following previously completed Master's Academic Studies. Doctoral Academic Studies carry at least 180 ECTS, provided that the previous overall number of ECTS from Undergraduate and Master's Academic Studies is 300.
The law allows for the possibility that study programs in medical sciences can be organized in an integrated manner within Undergraduate and Master's Academic Studies. In that case, the overall number is 360 ECTS.
