Dutch term or phrase: flexstuderen
I am currently translating a scheme regarding "flexstuderen". This term appears to be a neologism, as the collocation 'Flex" + "studeren" doesn't yet appear to be a standard term at universities in countries of the British Commonwealth, etc.

According to Wikipedia, this term can be defined as such:

"Flexstuderen is de mogelijkheid aan hogescholen of universiteiten om collegegeld per studiepunt te betalen in plaats van een vast bedrag per studiejaar. Hiermee is het gemakkelijker voor studenten om hun eigen studietempo te bepalen en om naast hun studie andere taken op de pakken, waardoor minder studenten zich genoodzaakt zien om (tijdelijk) te stoppen met hun studie."

Has anybody come across something similar in English yet? I look forward to your reply.

Cheers,
R.
