Study programme

ECTS credits

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 15 ECTS of courses per semester must be from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (course codes starting with an E). Courses at another faculty are on request (will be checked by the International Relations Officer).
