Academic credits for NIVA courses

In general, NIVA courses are eligible for academic credits according to the The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). However, as NIVA is not an institution for higher education, we cannot grant academic credits, but are happy to be of help in the process. The basic rule is that every student must apply for ECTS credits from their own examiner at their own institution of study. NIVA can give a recommendation when it comes to the number of credits granted for each course. This is always done in co-operation with the course leader. After completing the course, the student can get a certificate stating the amount of credits recommended.
