You will find an interesting mix of traditional and modern in our institutions of higher education.

The educational institutions in Romania offer traditional areas of study and research (Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Architecture, Economy, Social Sciences etc.), as well as modern ones, for example: Genetics, Biotechnologies, Information Technology, Communication sciences.

After 1989, a major reform was initiated by the higher education institutions in Romania. During this program, the number of students enrolled in the various study programs available in Romania has been on a constant increase. This huge increase is, among various reasons, the result of the introduction of a new opportunity for Romanian and foreign citizens to pursue studies based on tuition fees.

If you are an international student applying for a Romanian university you must first of all prove your knowledge of the teaching language. Romanian tuition is usually conducted in Romanian, English, French or German. As many other European countries, Romania now use the ETCS (European Transfer Credit System). This makes it much easier for you as an international student not only to come to Romania for your studies, but also to leave there knowing your credits and implicitly your diploma will be recognized outside Romania as well.
The national system of education, which includes both public and private higher institutions, has openness as its main feature: that is the transfer of a student from one educational form to the other is stipulated by law. The education system is organized on levels, ensuring the coherence and continuity of instruction. In Romania, higher education is provided in universities, institutes, academies, conservatories and university colleges.
The higher education institutions comprise several faculties, university colleges, divisions, departments and small pilot units specialized in researches. The faculty represents the functional basic unit of the higher education institution and is organized in chairs or departments. The teaching in a faculty is organized in function of academic specialties, years of study, student series and groups. The faculty includes the teaching and research personnel, the students and the auxiliary and administrative personnel. The faculties are individualized by their study programs and field of specialization.

Graduate study programs include:
- advanced studies (1-2 years) for university graduates; graduates are awarded a degree diploma;
- master studies (1-2 years) for university graduates;
Graduate academic studies (2-3 years) organized by graduate study schools attached to universities or functioning as autonomous units; the studies are based on an inter-disciplinary education aiming at increased professional specialization.

Concerning certification, there is a wide range of academic graduate and post-graduate diplomas and distinctions that one can obtain after studying in Romania:
Certificat de studii - A certificate awarded to students who have completed their studies in higher education, but have failed to pass their degree.
Diploma de absolvire a unui colegiu - Diploma certifying the completion of studies at a college and the passing of the relevant final exam.
Diploma de licenta - University diploma equivalent degree.
Diploma de master - Master Diploma.
Diploma de studii aprofundate - Diploma of Advanced Studies.
Diploma de studii (academice) - Diploma of Graduate Academic Studies (this kind of diploma is awarded by a school of graduate studies, within a higher education institution - such schools enroll holders of the first academic degree at the end of a two-three year graduate study program).
Romania signed the Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education in the European Region (Lisbon, 1997), and at the same time, it is part of the Bologna Process concerning the implementation of the common European Higher Education area.
