Formerly also termed as ‘daily study’. This is the type of study when the bulk of instruction is organized in the form of lectures, exercises, seminars, studios, practical training, workshops, excursions and other forms of instruction during which the student is in direct contact with the instructor and gains knowledge directly. Instruction covers most of the week.
Formerly also termed as ‘distance study’. This type of instruction combines elements of full-time study and self-study which are coordinated by the educational institution. Instruction in the part-time study form is conducted in the form of five two-day consultations per semester, always on Fridays (starting roughly at 12 a.m.) and on Saturday.
