The Ukrainian Catholic University is an institution fully accredited by the Ministry of Education of Ukraine. Our entire course structure is based on and strictly follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and is accredited in accordance with the European Credit Transfer System.

Students participating in the Summer Program will have a chance to earn ECTS credits after  passing the exam at the end of the course. The graded certificate states the course type, course dates, level of Ukrainian and number of credits earned. All the (ECTS) credits a student gets here can be easily transferred to North American, European, and Australian universities using the ECTS system.

* 1 ECTS (European credit) = 0.5 American credit

The allocation of the ECTS credits to the Ukrainian Language and Culture courses is based on the amount of work necessary for a course. One 60-credit hour-course amounts to a total of 120 hours of work (60 hours of class attendance, 15 hours of tutoring, 10 hours of evening activities, and 35 hours of group work, independent study, and preparation for exams). Students receive a fixed amount of ECTS credits per graded course.

Final examinations are given in all courses. Courses are graded using an A, B, C, D, and F grading system. The grade points given in the transcript differentiate performance within each of the stated grades.

A transcript will be given to those students who enroll in a Credit Program, attend classes regularly, and successfully pass all required examinations.

Attendance is compulsory for credited students. Students will not be awarded credits if they have an attendance record of less than 75%.

The School of Ukrainian Language and Culture reserves the right to expel students from the Summer Program in the event of improper behavior.


The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), was developed by the European Commission in order to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides a way of measuring and comparing learning achievements and transferring them from one institution to another. This is achieved through the use of common ECTS credit units and a common ECTS grading scale. ECTS also improves access to information on foreign curricula.

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a standard for comparing the performance of students of higher education across the European Union and other collaborating European countries. For successfully completed studies, ECTS credits are awarded. Usually one academic year corresponds to 60 ECTS credits in all countries irrespective of standard or qualification type and this is used to facilitate transfer and progression throughout the Union.
