3.3. Access requirements: kandidaat burgerlijk ingenieur

4. INFORMATION ON THE CONTENTS AND RESULTS GAINED

4.1. Mode of study: full-time

4.2. Programme requirements:

Each study is divided into one or more yearly programmes. The student has to pass for all of them successively in order to obtain the final degree. This means that no individual credit build-ups are allowed.

The passing of a yearly programme is evaluated by a board of examiners. This has to stick to the general rule that each student who obtained the mark of 10/20 passes for the individual programme component and that the student who thus reaches an overall percentage of 50% passes for the yearly programme. The student who reaches an overall percentage of more than 50% but who does not succeed in one or more individual programme components can receive a pass for the yearly programme. The board of examiners in this case will apply a mechanism of compensation: with one 9/20 one can succeed if one e.q. has obtained on overall percentage of 55%, with one 8/20 one can succeed if one e.q. has obtained an overall percentage of 58% and so on. In almost every case the student on which a compensation mechanism has been applied will receive a lower final award (e.g. passed instead of summa cum laude based on the overall percentage). Never can one succeed if the overall percentage of 50% has not been obtained.

8. INFORMATION ON THE NATIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM(S)

Structure of Higher Education

Higher Education in Flanders has a three-tiered structure. A distinction is made between academic education, long-type higher education, and short-type higher education. The latter two are also referred to as Higher Education Outside University, the common feature being that they both provide professionally-oriented instruction.

Academic education is based on ‘scientific or scholarly’ research carried out in the universities. This form of education leads to autonomous ‘scientific or scholarly’ work and critical application of ‘scientific or scholarly’ knowledge.

Long-type higher education is aimed at the application of ‘scientific or scholarly’ knowledge.

The salient feature of short-type higher education is the acquisition of professional skills.

Structure of academic education and admission requirements

Academic education is divided into basic academic training, advanced academic training, doctoral programme and post-academic training.

a) Basic academic training

Academic training constitutes the basic form of training following secondary education and includes two cycles.

The first cycle entitles successful students to one of the (intermediate) Candidate's degrees (‘bachelor’ or – in exceptional cases – ‘baccalaureus’). Admission to this first cycle is granted on the basis of a diploma of secondary education. As far as training in applied sciences and architecture is concerned, admission is further determined by the successful outcome of an entrance examination. Admission can also be granted to Higher Education Outside University graduates and – under certain conditions – to persons holding foreign degrees. In such cases shorter periods of study may be agreed to. The Candidate's degree as a rule provides access to corresponding second-cycle training.

The second cycle leads to a Master’s degree (‘licentiate’ with further qualification), or a degree in commercial engineering, medical sciences, veterinary science, dental science, civil engineering, civil engineering-architecture, bio-engineering or pharmacy.

In exceptional cases the university governing board may also allow the student to follow a shorter programme on the basis of his or her former study programme. This will be mentioned in the academic transcript.

b) Advanced academic training

Advanced academic training builds on basic academic training. As far as advanced academic training is concerned a distinction is made between complementary studies, advanced studies, and academic teacher training.

Complementary studies are aimed at complementing or extending basic academic training, where as advanced studies constitute an in-depth investigation of basic academic subjects. Complementary and advanced studies lead to a degree of complementary studies or a degree of advanced studies. As a rule training of this kind is open to holders of basic academic training degrees (Masters) or diplomas from institutions of long-type higher education at home or abroad which – by virtue of a decision by the university governing board – entitle holders to admission. Admission can also be made to depend on the successful outcome of an entrance examination. Grounds for admission are described in the academic transcript.

Academic teacher training is aimed at preparing students who have completed academic training for a career in teaching. Teacher training leads to a ‘qualified teacher’s’ degree. This degree can only be obtained by holders of a degree of basic academic training (second cycle).

c) Doctoral training and doctoral degree

A doctoral degree is obtained on the basis of a dissertation, which is the result of original research work.

Admission can be granted on the basis of an academic degree of the second cycle, e.g. Master’s degree, a degree in civil engineering,… or of an equivalent foreign qualification of higher education recognized by the university authorities and a favourable decision by the university governing board.

The doctoral student may also follow specific doctoral training, which leads to a certificate.

d) Post-academic training

Post-academic or in-service training includes short courses or seminars aimed at refresher training or re-training for which universities may deliver certificates.

Study programme and examination system

Basic academic and advanced academic training are structured in years of study. One year of study consists of 1500 to 1800 hours of study related activities (including class attendance, study periods,…). The total for each year of study is 60 credit points, which means that each credit point corresponds to a total of 25 to 30 hours of study time.

An examinee is awarded an examination mark of maximum 20 for each programme component for which an examination is taken. The pass mark for any programme component is 10 out of 20. A student can only succeed in a given year of study provided he or she has taken all the examinations that are included as part of that particular year of study. Furthermore, students are not allowed to sit the same examination or part of the examination more than twice in the course of one academic year. Only if a student has successfully passed a given year of study is he or she allowed to move up to the next year of study.

Students may under certain conditions be granted exemptions. In those cases students are exempted from one or more programme components in the curriculum on the basis of previously achieved examination results. Such exemptions are included in the academic transcript.

 

 

Explanation of codes and criteria at K.U.Leuven

K.U.Leuven students are assessed for each programme component individually and for the aggregate of their programme components within any given year of study. Students who fail the aggregate cannot move up to the next year of study and will not receive an academic transcript. Codes therefore only refer to programme components completed successfully: if a student is declared successful for the aggregate, he or she is automatically considered to have successfully completed all programme components.

Codes printed on the academic transcript correspond to the following results (article 36 of the K.U.Leuven examination regulations):

AAA = 18 or more out of 20

AA = 16 or 17

A = 14 or 15

B = 12 or 13

P = pass

V = exemption.

In accordance with article 28 of the K.U.Leuven examination regulations the aggregate of results can either be assessed as successful or:

- summa cum laude and with the congratulations of the examination board;

- summa cum laude;

- magna cum laude;

- cum laude;

- cum fructu.
