Prior learning experience can be accepted as credit points and credits from other Universities can be transferred. For details see the official ECTS user’s guide.

These study programs can be done completely online without any present on-campus parts.  They are especially designed for students with professional experience in the field of psychology, communication, coaching, business management, health, psychotherapy, counseling, social work or related fields. Distant learning is for students who can, for different reasons, not participate in an On-Campus program. Therefore, it has a different design and uses audio-visual medias, Skype, Moodle e-learning platform and accompanying Coaching. These programs stared in 2008. Today there are about 75 students from 12 countries worldwide (4 continents). For the distant learning programs of the UCN we offer as well in addition and as an option on campus present parts and examinations in Managua, Croatia and at the Representative Office of the UCN in Berlin (Germany): www.in-ici.net/ucn.php
