The curricula stipulate forty-five weeks of study per year. The average time ratio of theoretical education to practical training is 1 to 1. The total workload of a student is fifty-four hours a week, including classwork and independent studies, while the contact workload is thirty-six hours a week. For part-time (evening) education, classwork amounts to sixteen hours per week. In the case of correspondence education, each student must be provided with the opportunity to have 160 contact hours a year.
On the successful completion of studies and the passage of the State final attestation, students are awarded the corresponding diploma. The Diploma supplement contains the list of subjects taught during the period of studies and the grades earned.
The Diplomas of non-university level higher education entitle their holders either to pursue professional activities in accordance with the qualifications stipulated or to be admitted to university level higher education in the same conditions as for holders of school leaving certificates. University level higher education institutions may give credits and offer shortened programmes to graduates of a Tekhnikum (Uchilishche) or a College who continue their education in the same speciality.
