Study plan

During the course of the studies, students must collect at least 120 ECTS credits, of which 87
ECTS for compulsory courses and at least 33 ECTS for optional courses. Students make
effective choices of courses with a view to earning the required number of credits. While the
obligatory courses must be taken in each semester, the number and selection of optional
courses is only a recommendation. Students may choose any strategy on how to distribute the
number of optional courses during the academic years, with respect to their scholarly
interests, the overall required number of credits for optional courses, and the minimum
required number of credits per academic semester. Each semester, the students must collect
at least 30 ECTS.
