Academic credits for NIVA courses

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