Educational paradigms applied at the University:

  • A flexible system of Bologna levels of higher education and transfer, that is, the accumulation of credit points, was designed;
  • In the design of study programs, the modular principle of curriculum construction was applied with the reengineering of traditional teaching programs and the redefinition of teaching plans, whereby students get multidimensional knowledge, multidisciplinary knowledge and interdisciplinary knowledge;
  • The subjects of common foundations ensure the development of general generic competencies of students in parallel with academic-general education, theoretical-methodological, scientific-professional and professional-applicative ones, i.e. specialist competencies;
  • An integral university of Bologna was built, oriented towards the student, the so-called "Student centered university" with the synergy of all shared resources, including educational ones, i.e. educational resources, that is, a university that is also a business, incubation and "career guidance" center;
  • A teaching process based on an integrated mixed study and learning model (blended learning) was introduced, which assumes a synthesis of contact teaching, distance education and mobile education, that is, a synthesis of different forms of delivery of teaching content and different teaching methods. Modern interactive forms of imparting knowledge as dialogue and active participation of students in pedagogical workshops are preferred, in which the student discovers as much as he takes from the teacher, who is both in the role of lecturer and mentor. Problem-based learning, symbiotic learning and project-based learning are applied.
