Students are required to attend and be examined successfully in six (6) courses every semester, namely forty-eight (48) courses in total (= 6 x 8) – plus another course in a modern language.

Each semester runs for fifteen (15) weeks, thirteen (13) of which are dedicated to lectures and another two to examinations. There is also a resit examination period for both semesters in September.

There are both compulsory (Y) and optional / elective (EY) courses. Each course corresponds to three (3) hours of teaching weekly and is credited with 5 ECTS.
