General information

The autumn semester begins around 15 August and continues till around 20 December. The spring semester begins around 15 January and ends about 20 June.

30 ECTS credits is considered a full work load for one semester. Courses are usually 10 credits each, though courses giving 5, 20 or even 30 credits may occur. How to interpret course codes:

  • 1xxx = basic courses at bachelor's degree level
  • 2xxx (or 3xxx) = secondary courses at bachelor's degree level
  • 4xxx = courses at master's degree level

Typically, getting credit for a course requires both writing a paper and passing a final exam. Only exams are graded.
