# AAL Studies (1st & 2nd levels)

Taking part in the various kinds of classes proposed by the tutors or the AAL Board, students collect credit points. Obtaining the appropriate number of points is decisive for completing a year in the AAL. Failure to complete a year within the AAL has absolutely no impact on the student's course at his or her home university. However, if a student fails to complete a year at his or her basic department, he or she is automatically crossed off the list of AAL students.

Depending on the year of the course, students are required to obtain a certain number of points, considered the essential minimum for completing a given year. In a five-year course, 500 points are required. In the first year, students should obtain 60 points. The required number in the second year is 120 points, and the same number in the third year. In the fourth and fifth years, students have to obtain 100 points per year. After each academic year of the study course the internal points are recounted to the criteria of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The decision about recounting is taken by the Board of the AAL.

Students collect points by taking part in classes at universities other than their home school, with the points assigned as follows: 30 h of classes (regardless of type) = 15 pts. However, students of interdepartmental MISH structures cannot count the above (inter-university) classes as part of their curriculum at the given department of their home university. And vice versa, none of the classes taken as part of a single university's MISH program can be counted as part of the course taken in the inter-university AAL.

Students have an additional obligation to end at least one set of classes within the AAL in a given academic year with a yearly paper, to be assessed by the person teaching the class in question. This is one of three yearly papers required of students. Students can also obtain points by attending classes from specially organized modules. Each year, the AAL Board offers students a set of workshops, seminars, lectures, etc., each with a certain number of assigned points, which together form a module (e.g. natural sciences, mathematics or Internet modules). Students may choose the proposals that interest them.
