  • 4. ECTS Information package Faculty of Veterinary MedicineA) GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ECTSWhat is a credit system?A credit system is a systematic way of describing an educational programme by attaching creditsto its components. The definition of credits in higher education systems may be based ondifferent parameters, such as student workload, learning outcomes and contact hours.What is ECTS?The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System is a student-centred system based on thestudent workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme: objectives preferablyspecified in terms of learning outcomes and competences to be acquired.How did ECTS develop?ECTS was introduced in 1989, with in the framework of Erasmus, now part of the Socratesprogramme. ECTS is the only credit system which has been successfully tested and used acrossEurope. ECTS was set up initially for credit transfer. The system facilitated the recognition ofperiods of study abroad and thus enhanced the quality and volume of student mobility in Europe.Recently ECTS is developing into an accumulation system to be implemented at institutional,regional, national and European level. This is one of the key objectives of the BolognaDeclaration of June 1999.Why Introduce ECTS?ECTS makes study programmes easy to read and compare for all students, local and foreign.ECTS facilitates mobility and academic recognition. ECTS helps universities to organise andrevise their study programmes. ECTS can be used across a variety of programmes and modes ofdelivery. ECTS makes European higher education more attractive for students from othercontinents.What are the key features of ECTS?ECTS is based on the convention that 60 credits measure the Workload of a full-time studentduring one academic year. The student workload of a full-time study programme in Europeamounts in most cases to 36/40 Weeks per year and in those cases one credit stands for 25 to 30working hours. Workload refers to the notional time an average learner might expect to completethe required learning outcomes.Credit is also a way of quantifying the outcomes of learning. Learning outcomes are sets ofcompetences, expressing what the student will know, understand or be able to do aftercompletion of a process of learning, short or long. Credits in ECTS can only be obtained aftercompletion of the work required and appropriate assessment of the learning outcomes achieved. 4
  • 5. ECTS Information package Faculty of Veterinary MedicineThe allocation of ECTS credits is based on the official length of a study programme cycle. Thetotal workload necessary to obtain a first cycle degree lasting officially three or four years isexpressed as 180 or 240 credits.Student workload in ECTS includes the time spent in attending lectures, seminars, independentstudy; preparation for, and taking of, examinations, etc.Credits are allocated to all educational components of a study programme (such as modules,courses, placements, dissertation work. etc.) and reflect the quantity of work each componentrequires in relation to the total quantity of work necessary to complete a full year of study in theprogramme considered.The performance of the student is documented by a local/national grade. It is good practice to addan ECTS grade, in particular in case of credit transfer. The ECTS grading scale ranks the studentson a statistical basis. Therefore, statistical data on student performance is a prerequisite forapplying the ECTS grading system. Grades are assigned among students with a pass grade asfollows:A best 10 %B next 25 %C next 30 %D next 25 %E next 10 %A distinction is made between the grades FX and F that are used for unsuccessful students. FXmeans: fail- some more work required to pass and F means: fail -considerable further workrequired. The inclusion of failure rates in the Transcript of Records is optional.http://europa.eu.int/comm/education/socrates/ects.html 5

Teaching SystemThe avoidance of overlap and co-ordination in the teaching between different Departments withinthe Faculty is organised by a number of commissions which are set up by the Board of Directorsof the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, considering the opinions of the teaching staff and Headsof Departments. On the other hand, Veterinary Association Board, composed of the Deans of allVeterinary Faculties in Turkey, is responsible from the co-ordination of the teaching among theFaculties throughout the country.The pedagogical approach of the courses for theoretical teaching includes using audio- visual andalso “Interactive Computer Assisted Systems” in most disciplines. In case of clinical training,students of a class are divided into five groups to carry out their education in five Departments,namely Food Hygiene, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Internal Diseases, and ArtificialInsemination in rotation system. Clinical training also includes mobile clinic and emergencyservice with the attendance of 5th year students. In practical training, students work in groups, 23
  • 24. ECTS Information package Faculty of Veterinary Medicinetypically 15-20 students, performing the laboratory work with the supervision of academic staff.Last semester students attend supervised and applied training for a period of 17 weeks in pre-clinical and clinical disciplines in rotation and join full-time practical work on farm managementfor a total of 40 hours.In the Faculty, each Department carries out the education mostly with its own textbooks and withthe course notes in a small rate. Beside this, standard international veterinary textbooks are usedas the main references.In order to support undergraduate teaching, the Faculty makes arrangements with the outsidebodies for practical training. In this context, the students are having practice obligatorily in theEARF, private practitioners, factories, stud-farms, hippodrome, and zoo in the summerprobationary period following either 6th or 8th semesters of the students. On the other hand, theFaculty has international arrangements for extra mural work for a limited number of studentswith some veterinary institutions and programmes i.e. Hanover Veterinary High School, SarajevoVeterinary Faculty, and Kibbutz in Israel.In addition, undergraduate practical training in some Departments such as Food Hygiene andTechnology, Animal Nutrition and Nutritional Diseases, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ArtificialInsemination, and Animal Husbandry is supported by external visits to outside bodies e.g.Faculty Farm and slaughterhouse.6. The Teaching EnviromentIn order to improve the quality of teaching, some remarkable efforts are carried out to achieve anadequate level of knowledge and skill among the academic personnel. With this purpose, theacademic personnel are regularly sent to observe the teaching and research systems of someFaculties that have scientific co-operation with the FVMAU and also to join internationalrelevant courses to follow the scientific developments in education system. The FVMAU alsofollows “teaching skill courses” organised by the Faculty of Medicine of Ankara University.Beside, the Faculty has recently applied for two international projects called “Quality CultureProject” and “Joint Master Project” organised by the European University Association.Another measure taken to improve the quality of teaching is the evaluation system of lecturersmade by the students at the end of each semester by answering a questionnaire form.7. The Examination SystemThere is not a central examination policy for the FVMAU as a whole.The examination and assessment principles of the FVMAU is determined within the frameworkof “The Education and Training Instructions of Ankara University”. In this respect, each subjecthas a mid-term examination during teaching period (between the 7th and 10th weeks of thesemester) and a final examination without teaching period which takes place at the end of eachsemester, and lasts approximately for a month (mid-January for fall semester, beginning of Junefor spring semester). With the decision of the Faculty Board, excuse and/or additional final 24
  • 25. ECTS Information package Faculty of Veterinary Medicineexaminations can be available. The only prerequisite for the final examination of a given subjectis the attendance of theoretical and practical courses at the percentages of 70 and 80, respectively.The teaching staff of a subject has the right to choose the appropriate form(s) of examination. Ingeneral, the examinations are written and/or oral. Essay questions, short answer questions, andmultiple-choice questions are mainly used in written examinations. The oral examinations aretaken place with or without practical and clinical works depending on the nature of the courses.The examinations are carried out by the teaching staff who have taught the course.Students who do not pass a course examination can repeat the examination as many times asnecessary. However, they are obliged to graduate from the Faculty in maximum eight years andstudents who do not pass all the courses of an academic year, can take the courses belong to thefollowing year but not the following second year. Students cannot retake the examination in thesame year unless who have failed in only one course of an academic year (two semesters).8. Evaluating of TeachingSpecific quality evaluation mechanisms to assess the quality of teaching in the Faculty include:  Questionnaires, prepared by the University and answered by the students at the end of each semester.  Suggestions and criticisms made by the representatives of students.  Interviews with the managers of private management about the knowledge and skills of their employee who graduated from the Faculty in order to revise the curriculum.Questionnaires, prepared by the University and answered by the students is an establishmentprocedure and cover all the teaching staff.9. Course Structure Diagram with Credit9.1.Revised Curriculum (30 credit per semester)The revised and approved curriculum has just started to operate in the academicyear 2003-2004 with the first year students. • In addition to the National Credits (NC), ECTS has been implemented with this new curriculum. Moreover, the number of contents of elective courses have been increased according to the contemporary needs. • The final year of the course (9th and 10th semesters) is totally devoted to clinical practical education with more emphasis on “hands on” practical training. In order to commence this final year training, one should have completed the given courses and passed the final examinations of the corresponding courses. 25
