Credit load and exams

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) defines a full study load for one year as 60 ECTS credits. For one semester, we recommend that students take courses for 30 ECTS credits.

However, it is possible for students to take more or less than 30 ECTS credits per semester.

  • The minimum course load is 22.5 ECTS credits per semester.
  • The maximum course load is 35 ECTS credits per semester.

Note that the pre-semester Danish language course is not included in these limits. Therefore, it is possible for a student to take the pre-semester Danish language course (7.5 ECTS) and the maximum course load per semester (35 ECTS) for a total of 42.5 ECTS credits.
