Information on the block structure for 7.5 ECTS courses
See the block structure for law courses with 7.5 ECTS with study start in Aug/Sep:
- Block A runs from study start in Aug/Sep to October - with exams in mid-October (week 43).
- Block B runs from Mid-October to December - with exams in December.
See the block structure for law courses with 7.5 ECTS with study start in February:
- Block A runs from study start in February to March - with exams in mid-March.
- Block B runs from mid-March to May - with exams in May.
With a full study load of 30 ECTS (within Law courses), you have to choose minimum one 15 ECTS law course. In addition, you can only choose one 7.5 ECTS law course from each block.
No law classes are held in the weeks 42 and 43 regardless of whether you have 7.5 ECTS or only 15 ECTS classes. In week 42, students can prepare for exams in classes of 7.5 ECTS from block A and then the exams are held in week 43; If you have chosen 15 ECTS law courses exclusively there will be no law classes in these two weeks.
It is your own responsibility to ensure that the courses you choose do not have classes and exams at the same time, cf. the guidelines stated below at ‘Conflicting exams’.
- at least one of your courses is a 15 ECTS course (at full-time law studies)
- the courses you choose do not have classes at the same time
- if you take 7.5 ECTS courses that they do not belong to the same block
- the courses you choose with written exams do not have overlapping examination periods
- your home university can approve of your course choices in good time before the final course registration deadline.
How to find my classroom
In the course descriptions you will find a link to the timetable information for each of the courses. A guide is available for the timetable information. If two weekdays e.g. Wednesday and Friday are stated in the timetable schedule this means that you should attend the class on both these days.
- Conflict between oral exams: The faculty will ensure that your oral exams do not take place on the same date if you choose two or multiple courses that have the same exam period.
- Conflict between written exams: It is your own responsibility to ensure that you do not have overlapping dates for your written exams if you choose courses with written exams. You can see dates for written exams in the course descriptions.
- Conflict between oral and written exams: The faculty will ensure that you get separate examination dates if you choose a course that has an oral exam and a course that contains a written exam, where the date of the written exam falls in the same exam period as the oral exam. However, you may have exams on two days or more in a row.
In the autumn semester, exams for law courses taught in English are generally held in December and will be completed just before Christmas; Exceptions may, however, occur for exams with the examination type ‘Individual written assignment’ corresponding to take-home exams; these will be possible to take from your home country.
If you graduate this year and need proof of your examination results at an earlier stage, it will be a good idea to select courses with oral exams. Please also check the preliminary examination periods stated in the course descriptions.
