The Hyperion University of Bucharest follows the Bologna system in terms of cycles of studies and ECTS. Thus, there is the 1st cycle, or the undergraduate level, of 3 years of study and 180 ECTS in total (60 ECTS each year, for the compulsory subjects, to which optional subjects add), and the 2nd cycle, the MA level, with 2 years of study.
A student must obtain at least 40 ECTS for one year of study to be allowed to pass to the next year of study.
Each subject is allotted a certain number of ECTS, as it may be seen on the Course Catalogue. Each subject is graded, on the Romanian system, with a mark from 1 to 10, where one is the minimum and it usually means “fraud”, and 10 is the maximum. A minimum of 5 is required to pass the exam.
