What you need to know
At the UM, credits follow the ECTS points system, and a one-semester workload should have a minimum of 8 ECTS and a maximum of 30 ECTS.
- If you are an Exchange student you will have the opportunity to select study-units across various academic entities.
- If you are an Erasmus+ student make sure that the majority of the credits (ECTS) are within the subjects nominated according to the agreement between the UM and your home university.
Study-units are coded according to the subject area, academic level and study-unit topic. Taking for instance: ART1001: Introduction to History of Art (level 1), as an example:
the letter code - ART - refers to the subject area
the initial number - 1 - refers to the academic level of the study unit
the last three digits - 001 - refer to the study-unit topic.
The availability of study-units is subject to timetabling constraints.
