Note that certain government agencies employers or some professional licensing bodies may require degrees which are directly regulated by a national Ministry of Education. A Selinus degree is valid for many purposes but not for all. We recommend foreign students to check a Selinus University Master usability to their goals. The study programs costs are determined by SUSL Credits. For a Master, each credit is equal to 150 USD/Euros; however, CV credits validation may gain a cost/credits reduction up to 70%. Therefore, the candidate’s CV evaluation is fundamental for the program; three pedagogical methods are used for a Master program: 1) Relying entirely on texts and research. 2) Mixed: texts, researches and credits from prior learning. 3) APEL (Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning): based on professional activities and personal skills listed in the candidate’s CV.
The entire program cost is determined by credits amount obtained by the candidate according to his/her CV and his/her prior learning. It is necessary to send a thoroughly detailed CV in order to know the study program cost. The Secretariat will process the candidate’s CV, giving account of the credits number earned by the student. This result will be communicated through a document called “Provisional Certificate”: it displays the program final cost.
A Master specifically requires 40 Selinus University Credits, in addition to the Bachelor degree. That means a total 160 Credits (Bachelor + Master), equivalent to 320 ECTS. Obviously, the more credits the student earns through CV validation, the more the program cost will lower.
