Structure of study programs by division of credits into core, specialization and elective coursesOn the bottom page you can view the indicative structure of study over three academic years and what courses they are and their level of competence. Course entry and their objectives can be found under the program.

Explanation: The  number of courses and modules taken by students during each academic year is just a guide. Students can either take more or fewer credits in each academic year, and workloads on individual subjects are also varied. Since students are all about their own learning progress, it is common for the total number of students to study for a matriculation at the school to vary. Students plan their studies, and restructure, on assessment days.
