Frequently Asked Questions

1.    Will the 12 ECTS credits be part of the 60 ECTS credits of the course programme on which I am enrolled? 

No. The 12 ECTS credits are part of your allocation of extra study-units and will be over and above the programme allocation.

2.    What happens when I go on an Erasmus+ study period?

Depending on when you go on Erasmus, an agreement will be reached on when to take the unit you will be missing. Please contact CELP’s secretary immediately once you are accepted to go on an Erasmus+ study period.

3.    What happens if I fail one of the study-units?

Apart from the first sit following the completion of the study-unit, you are entitled to 3 resits.

4.    What happens if I miss a lecture because I am unwell?

Attendance is compulsory; therefore, a medical certificate is required in order to justify your absence. This medical certificate should be presented to CELP’s secretary upon your return to university.

5.    Will ‘adult learners’ who are admitted in terms of regulation 6(c) of the Admissions Regulations be required to participate in the NAE?

8.    Will I be expected to work out tasks outside the ECA classroom?

No. All oral and written tasks will be worked out in class. The philosophy of the programme focuses on constant practice in the controlled and safe environment offered by the classroom.
