You definitely might have found out something about “Bologna”. Nevertheless, we would like you to know this process thoroughly. Therefore we shall present to you some of the changes in the Romanian education system. Change on the duration and structure of studies. Duration of the BA qualifications has been reduced to three years. Duration of the MA qualifications has been reduced to two years. Short-term education (college) has changed to BA studies. Ph.D. system has been restructured. Change on the structure of specializations Promotion of student and academic mobility Recognition of degree at the European level Quality assurance of the academic offer Promotion of the mobility and degree recognition within the European area highly relies on the use of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). This means that each subject is ascribed a maximum of 5 credits. A credit is considered to equal nearly 30 hours of both assisted teaching activity (lectures, seminars, laboratory classes) and individual work (time typically needed to complete all learning activities such as: study in libraries, learning during examination sessions, practical activities). Starting with the academic year 2005-2006, the structure of the academic education comprises three cycles: BA studies, duration of study: 3 years MA studies, duration of study: 2 years Ph.D. studies, duration of study: 3 years. As for this year, admission to studies to the “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi was organized for every area of study or group of areas of study offered by one faculty. One area of study includes one or several specializations. You will therefore make your choice on the specialization you want to attend, but only after the first semester and in agreement with the learning outcomes you have gained. Once the specialization is chosen, it is called a major (main specialization). You should also make a choice on your second specialization, either by the time when you decide upon your major or by the end of the second semester of the first year. It is a complementary specialization and it could be chosen among all areas of study offered by the 15 faculties of the “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi. If you failed to decide on your complementary specialization by the end of the second semester of the first year, then you will miss the chance to become specialized in two areas of study during the same duration of study (3 years) and this is an opportunity offered only by the “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi.
