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 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).

English taught courses at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture

Please note that this list will be updated to the preliminary version for the next academic year by 15 April. The final version will be online by 15 June. 

If Dutch is your mother tongue, if you have sufficient knowledge of Dutch or if you are an Erasmus Belgica student you can also choose courses taught in Dutch from the course catalogue.

Courses at other faculties

You can also follow courses from other faculties. For their study programmes and further details please check the course catalogue. Contact the International Relations Office of the Faculty that offers the course to be sure whether or not you can follow it.
