Economics and Law (B.Sc.)

Programme schedule

The curriculum of the three-year Bachelor degree programme ‘Economics and Law’ comprises compulsory ‘core’ courses in economics and in law and one ‘elective’ course.
Each course (or ‘module’) has a credit weighting expressed in ECTS credits (or ‘credit points’) that reflects the total student study time required for that course. One credit point (CP) is equivalent to one ECTS credit, and one ECTS credit corresponds to a workload of 30 hours. Each module concludes with an assessment of student learning (usually in the form of a written examination). The final stage of the Bachelor’s degree programme (total course requirement: 180 CP) is the final year Bachelor’s thesis.
