In other words, in the beginning of an academic year, which is usually put off in comparison with the other types of training, the students of the extramural tuition get a so called "adjusting course" (as a rule the academic year of the full- and part-time studies starts on September, 1, and lasts till June, 30, inclusive, as for the extramural studies - the academic year starts later, from Oktober, 1).
The adjusting course is a brief review of the subjects (several introductory lectures), which the students will study independently in the future and pass examinations in them.
The adjusting course usually lasts 2 - 3 weeks in day time of working days. Then during about 4 - 5 months the students train independently in the subjects they have had at the adjusting course. In 4 - 5 months the examination takes place, during which the teachers determine the students' level of the subject knowledge and attest them. After that the students receive the next adjusting course for a new set of subjects and everything repeats in 4 - 5 months.
The externship is the independent training by the student of the subjects provided by the educational programme in the chosen speciality with the following attestation (current and final) in the institute of higher education.
