evaluation of studies

  • Completed phases of studies are recorded using a credit system.
  • Each student has a study sponsor who is a member of the Academy committee, and who is available to him or her as needed over the entire length of the studies.
  • We have chosen not to use exams in the evaluation of the studies.
  • The studies are evaluated based on the student’s written work (essays or studies) or projects, the study of at least part of the recommended literature and written answers to questions based on the covered material.
  • It is mostly about the student’s active and creative approach to a given topic and not about proving the amount of knowledge.
  • The works and projects in a module are verbally evaluated by the study sponsor; the sponsor awards a certain number of credits based on his evaluation.
  • Students’ final works and projects are evaluated by the respective sponsor and one opponent who is another member of the committee. Afterwards the student presents his work (or project) to the Unitarian Academy committee.

The student will graduate when he achieves the set number of credits and presents his final work or project.
