Degree Programs Organization and structure

Combinations of study programs

The specifications for a degree program contain at least three pieces of information:

  • degree or title worked towards
  • mono or major
  • minor; depending on degree program

The combination of study programs selected must add up to 180 ECTS credits for a bachelor's degree program and 120 or 90 ECTS credits for a master's degree program. Medicine, which is worth 180 ECTS credits at master's level, is an exception. Some degree programs allow you to select study programs with different special qualifications. Please think about the possible study program structures in this respect and the plan of studies for your degree program. The system checks the degree and combination of major and minor programs as they are entered. It is you, however, who are essentially responsible for ensuring the combination of study programs is correct.

Example:
