From the Advanced Design Studies
Progressive extinction: In the 2010-2011 academic year the phazing out of the Advanced Design Studies Degree began according to the following table:
Academic Year, 1st course Extinction 2010-2011
Academic Year, 2nd course Extinction 2011-2012
Academic Year, 3rd course Extinction 2012-2013
Students that should incorporate themselves in the new undergraduate program.
For anyone who was affected by the phazing out of the Advanced Design Studies Degree and must incorporate the new curriculum, the Department of Education shall establish a special procedure for recognition of credits, to be computed in order to obtain the new Bachelor’s Degree in Design.
Completing an undergraduate program in Design leads to a Bachelor’s Degree in Design in the corresponding specialization. The Bachelor’s Degree allows access to master’s programs at universities or other official institutions of higher learning. Doctoral studies in Art are arranged by agreement with specific universities.
Those in possession of a Design Degree (completed the Advanced Studies in Design) wishing to obtain the Bachelor’s Degree in Design in the same field, would obain recognition of at least 180 ECTS, and finalize the additional training that Department of Education determines.
Those in possession of a Design Degree (completed the Advanced Studies in Design) wishing to obtain the Bachelor’s Degree in Design in a different field, would obtain the recognition of the corresponding core credits.
The other credits earned in Higher Education may be recognized by the Department of Education, taking into account the correlation between the skills and content of courses taken and those planned in the curriculum you are studying.
Final Project credits will not be recognized in any case.
