Semester Structure

The academic year is divided into two full semesters: Fall and Spring.  Each full semester is 12 weeks long, and courses that run throughout the full semester typically carry 6 ECTS credits.  Fall semester runs from early October to end of January, while Spring semester runs from early March to end of June.

Fall and Spring semesters are further subdivided into 1st and 2nd half semesters, each of which is 6 weeks long. Courses that are half-semester-long typically carry 3 ECTS credits.
