About the University of Oradea
In the atmosphere of the Enlightenment at the end of the 18th century, in 1780, a "Higher Institution of Philosophical Education" was founded and transformed, in 1788, into a Faculty of Law, the oldest faculty not only in nowadays Romania, but also in a vast region of Eastern Europe. In 1923, the foundation of two Theological Academies gave new dimensions to the academic life in Oradea.
But, in 1934, under inauspicious circumstances, the academic nucleus of Oradea, the Law Faculty, is transferred to Cluj. After a 30-year break in the activity of the Law Academy in Oradea, on October the 1st 1963, an order of the Ministry of Education established in Oradea a 3 year Pedagogic Institute meant to do away with the scarcity of teachers in the secondary education.
In 1983, due to a poor educational policy, the didactic and humanist specializations diminished their activity and from a prosperous institution of higher education, there remained only a sub-engineer college affiliated to the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.
In May 1990, a decree of the Romanian Government established the Technical University of Oradea, later called the University of Oradea and based on impressive traditions of academic life in the town. It was an act of scientific and cultural restoration long expected in the life of the Romanian society.
Today, the University of Oradea is an integrated institution of higher education of this kind, comprising 15 faculties, 4 colleges, 6 institutions of Higher Education outside the country and 20.000 students.
Education and Grading System
Starting with the academic year 2005-2006, Romania has passed to the Bologna system, which seeks to articulate the European higher education around two main cycles: "undergraduate" and "postgraduate".
The undergraduate level is spread on 3-6 years (depending on the field of studies), and the post -graduate one on 1-2 years for masters and 1-6 for specialization in medical sciences.
The main objectives of the Bologna declaration are to increase the mobility and employability of European higher education graduates thus ensuring competitiveness of European higher education worldwide.
In order to largely promote student mobility, the European Credit Transfer System has been adopted.
The study credits reflect the workload the student has to pass the exam for a certain subject matter. As a rule, the number of transferable credits per year of studies is 60, according to the ECTS.
Individual courses are graded on a scale between 1 and 10.
Highest on scale: 10
Pass/fail level: 5/4
Lowest on scale: 1
The academic year begins on the 1st of October with the opening ceremony.
The first semester begins on the 1st of October and consists of 14 effective weeks of studies.
The study period is interrupted by 2 weeks of holidays on Christmas.
The winter session begins at the end of January and lasts 4 weeks.
The second semester begins after one week of holidays, at the end of February, and lasts also 14 weeks.
The second semester is interrupted by the Easter holidays that last one week.
