The educational frame
Within "Petru Maior" University of Tîrgu-Mureş, Part-Time Learning has played a very important part, as more and more people of all ages want to benefit from higher education due to the needs of the society for qualified personnel. Moreover, this is achieved with smaller costs.

Part-Time Learning is an integrated and flexible form of education which offers students the possibility of managing their studies in a compressed program, within the organizing institution. Part- Time Learning focuses more on the way the students study and less on the place where the learning/teaching process occurs.

The organizing structure
The Department of Part-Time Learning functions in accordance with the regulations of the Minstry of Education, Research, Youth, and Sports, the resolution of the Senate of "Petru Maior" University of Tîrgu-Mureş and its own Code of Rules. The department is managed by a Head of the Administrative Board, appointed by the University Rector, with the University Senate's approval.

The Department of Part-Time Learning was set up in 1999 and had two specializations: Management and Public Administration, with a number of 63 students. In the following years the department diversified its educational offer with new specializations, the number of students increasing each year.

At present, the department organizes courses for academic and professional education strictly complying with the academic requirements for the day time education, for 7 bachelor specializations: Management, Public Administration, Law, Accountancy, Romanian Language and Literature-English Language and Literature. These specializations are accredited and authorized to function as day time studies.

The courses organized by the Department are funded by the participants. The number of students and the tuition are established by the University Senate, so that the amount should include the didactic activities and teaching materials offered to the students on paper or magnetic support. There is a study contract stipulating an annual fee and a school contract which includes the rights and obligations of the sides between the university and the beneficiary of the educational services.

The didactic activities organized by the Department of Part-Time Learning under the supervision of the University Senate and the departments of specializations are held by the day time teaching staff, which ensures a high standard of quality for the educational process and an equivalent value statute regarding the degree and the competences of the graduates with the day time students.

Perspectives
In order to obtain greater efficiency, the university, through this department, ensures the organizational frame for the didactic activities, such as synthesized courses, seminars, tutorial activities, evaluation tests, practical papers, counseling on different matters. These activities take place monthly, within a compact timetable, conceived in advance, on weekends (on Friday and Saturday). The study of the syllabi of the disciplines included in the curricula is finalized by oral or written exams, given in the winter and summer exam sessions and, if necessary, by resitting them in autumn. The students' activity takes place according to the Regulations for the professional activity of students and the European regulations for the transferable credits system.

Beginning with the academic year 2005-2006, the period of study has been reduced to 3 years, according to the Declaration of Bologna, to which "Petru Maior" University of Tîrgu-Mureş has adhered by signing it.
