How many credits do I need to advance to the next semester?

To advance to the next semester, you need to complete either 20 credits for the current semester or 45 credits for the last two semesters. Those who have earned at least 20 credits in each semester need not bother with any further calculations. In the case of concurrent studies, this requirement now applies separately for each.

Examples for a clearer picture:

  • For example, if you have successfully completed 30 credits of courses this semester, you only need to complete 15 credits the following semester.
  • If you earned 43 credits in the spring semester, you only need 2 credits in the following fall semester.

You will also meet the requirement if you complete the minimum credit value of the study and the period of study does not exceed the standard period. In doing so, the following applies: the total number of credits earned in a given study plan includes credits earned for all courses taken, credited or automatically recorded in this study plan.

Another option is to obtain a number of credits that corresponds to at least thirty times the number of semesters already completed. The period of study must not exceed the standard period. What does this mean?

  • Imagine a situation where a student takes 25 credits worth of courses in semester 1, 40 credits in semester 2, 50 credits in semester 3, and 35 credits in semester 4. Therefore, they do not need to earn any credits in semester 5 because they have earned a total of 150 credits in the previous four semesters, which is thirty times the five semesters he has now completed. The exact wording can be found in Article 12 of the Study and Examination Regulations.
