ITS Apulia Digital Maker offers a 2-years course (organized in 2 semesters per year), which leads to a Higher Technician Diploma (Level 5 EQF). The outgoing students at ITS Apulia Digital Maker will leave with a learning or training agreement made prior to the exchange, validated by the International Relations Manager. The agreement is drawn up for a semester or a year and is signed by the host institution as the sending institution. Following the abroad experience, a Transcript of Records or a Internship Report will be completed which is designed to give full recognition of the students’ achievements throughout the semester/year. The workload, calculated in a Credit System, is 60 for one year and 30 for one semester with the following formula:
Below the ECTS calculation metric, where each Training Unit (Unità Formativa” –“U.F.”) is designed in order to guarantee at least 1 credit:
1 credit = (classroom or internship hours + individual study hours) / 25
Credit points will be awarded at the end on successful completion of the course or the traineeship. Once students receive a Transcript of Records or the Internship report from the host institution, the students can validate them at the home institution. This is done by the Credit System equivalence system or Hours equivalence system. Students will obtain full recognition for doing their study programme or internship abroad.
