European Courses Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

Some of the training modules proposed to be used are issued from the proven series of training modules already used by F+U group at its University of cooperative Education in Germany and other EU Universities of Applied Science. These module profiles were compiled by Senior Professors and Curriculum experts from Germany and East Africa. Such modules were presented to the European Union EDULINK, ACP Science and Technology Capacity Building Units and approved as relevant and focused on improvement of local “in service curriculum” by way of complementary “EU added  Values”.  The module contents have been adapted to suit the prevailing local conditions and interests.

The modules to be taught during the training courses will entitle successful participants which fulfill all the preconditions for a higher education university matriculation in an EU country to acquire a number of credit points under the European Courses Credit Transfer System (ECTS) issued by IBA F+U and other EU Universities of Applied Science These ECTS can be then redeemed in case of future higher education of participants in any EU country.


FLEXIBLE MODULE SELECTION CONCEPT (FMSC) The way our short programs work is that students who take these courses are not subjected to a monotony of fixed modules but a Flexible Module Selection Concept (FMSC) focused on elements which either complement their prior education or modules lined up with the practical applications on the ground where ever the applicant may be.


This 12 to 16 weeks short course requires that the  applicant spends a minimum of  105 hours = (15 days of 7 hours a day) in a practical engagement at a particular  Company, Industry, Organization, Office environment , School, Collage or any establishment where one  can gain additional skills related to the specifics of the course.
