WARNING! Starting on July 30th, 2015, we have started to rebuild from scratch the whole website of the Free Technology Academy, to make it much easier to maintain and use than it was before. We haven't finished yet! Apart from looks and layout, which may change several times before settling down, it IS very likely that there are broken links here and there, or URLs that will stop work in a few days. Please be patient and if you spot any problem, let us know (contact@ftacademy.org)

Unversity of Agder

 

The following courses are recognized as electives in the graduate programme of Information Systems at University of Agder:

  • The concepts of Free Software and Open Standards
  • Economic aspects of Free Software
  • Legal aspects of the Information Society

For students in the UiA bachelor programme in IT and Information Systems, at most six FTA modules will be recognized within the IS/ICT part of the elective area. There are two programmes in which FTA modules are recognised under the conditions as described in this page:

These modules will be incorporated into the student's transcript with the UIA grade scale which is equivalent to the FTA grade as shown in the following tablen:

Only subjects graded with 4 or higher are subject to be recognized by UIA. Since the examination procedures for FTA modules form an integral part of the course, it is not possible to obtain credit for these modules in any other way than by participating in the course. FTA modules may demand prerequisites that are not automatically fulfilled for every UiA student. It is the student's responsibility, when registering for an FTA course, to check that he or she satisfies the prerequisites. Download the original and certified documentation.
