4How many ECTS the program awards?
The program awards 120 ECTS.
5How many modules can I take per year?
You can select the modules that you want to attend, provided that the sum of credits (ECTS) per year does not exceed 60 ECTS. All the modules of the program award 20 ECTS, but the dissertation awards 40 ECTS. In consequence, you may register for up to three modules per year, or up to one module and the Dissertation per year.
6What are the students’ obligations to pass a course?
The students have to submit a written assignment and take a final exam for each course, at the end of the semester. In case of failure of the final exam, there is a reexam.
7How the final grade of each course is calculated?
Your final grade of each course is a weighted sum of the written assignment and the final exam. You may take final course examination if you have successfully completed the written assignment with an average grade of at least 50 percent. Students who do not successfully complete the assignment are not entitled to take the final course examination. The written assignment constitutes a 30 percent of the student’s grade for each course.
