FAMU offers various programs, where no full degree, but full credited curriculum is provided, with a certificate and ECTS summary received at the end. The main program of this type is the Academy Preparation Program and other short term programs (all up to 1 year). Many serve as a complementary part of the curriculum of students from other universities.
