The number of ECTS in your UGent study programme depends on the length of your stay:
- 1 semester: min. 20 ECTS, max. 30 ECTS
- 1 year: min. 40 ECTS, max. 62 ECTS
Exceptions can be made only for students who need less credits to achieve their degree in their home university (for example only their master thesis). In this case, you need to provide proof.
At least 50% of the courses per semester must be from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. Courses at another faculty are on request (will be checked by the International Relations Officer).
