Maximum number of credits per semester

We recommend following no more than 30 EC worth of courses per semester. This is equivalent to a study load of 40 hours per week. You may register for a maximum of 42 EC per semester.

Registered > 42 EC credits

You are allowed to register for a total of 42 EC per semester, including Honours courses (if you're an Honours student). If you register for more credits you will receive a warning per e-mail. If you are still registered for more than 42 EC by the time the course registration period closes, the surplus courses you registered for will automatically be cancelled.

An exception is made for students in a double study programme. 

In semester 1 there are two course registration periods for master students. When registering for Master’s courses, period 1 will be checked to verify registration for a maximum of 18 EC and period 2 for registration for 24 EC.
