By accepting the Bologna process in 2003, the higher education in the Republic of Macedonia started a wide process of reforms for the purpose of improving its compatibility and connection to European higher education institutions. One of the changes is the implementation of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), which should provide, among other things, the students to be active in the teaching and be involved participants in the learning process. This paper explores the opinions and views of the students at the Faculty of Pedagogy “St. Kliment Ohridski” in Skopje, the Faculty of Pedagogy in Shtip, and the Institute of Pedagogy at the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje, about the teaching organization in accordance with the ECTS of these faculties. This article is part of a wider research of the teaching organization at the faculties of education in Macedonia, conducted in 2010, which encompasses 240 students polled from the three faculties as well as around ten employed staff that have data regarding the conditions for work at the faculties. The attention of the paper is firstly directed to attendance of lectures and tutorials, as well as the time scale and methods of education. The following part focuses on the participation of the students during lectures and tutorials as well as their readiness for the lessons. In the end, it examines the cooperation among the students, and among the students and professors, as well as the opinions of students regarding the changes that should be introduced in the lectures and tutorials.
