Study paths

Study path studies usually equals 1st year studies in the degree programme. In Bachelor's degrees this is 60 credit points (ECTS) and in Master's degrees either 15 ore 30 credit points (ECTS) depending on the extent of the degree. The purpose of study paths is to provide the opportunity to study towards a degree. All degree programmes do not offer study paths, even though the Open Path Application itself is in use.

Study modules

A study module is a combination of courses (other than study path studies) and the extent of the module may vary. Study modules can be seen as a form of Continuing Education, however in these study modules the studies are compiled from parts of the degree.
