The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.

      Additional requirements for graduation: 1. The student must achieve the S-3 level on the ILR Scale (see link below). Definition: Professional working proficiency is the fourth level of five in the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) scale of language proficiency, formerly called the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) scale. This level is sometimes referred to as S-3 or Level 3. A person at this level: is able to speak the language with sufficient structural accuracy and vocabulary to participate effectively in most formal and informal conversations on practical, social, and professional topics is able to discuss particular interests and special fields of competence with reasonable ease has comprehension which is quite complete for a normal rate of speech has a general vocabulary which is broad enough that he or she rarely has to grope for a word has an accent which may be obviously foreign; has a good control of grammar; errors made virtually never interfere with understanding and rarely disturb the native speaker. 2. The test to evaluate the student’s proficiency level has to be performed by a UofN Academic Advisor or teacher with experience in the area of language learning, with the help of a native speaker. 3.
