Duration

The BA programme is normally three years (i.e. six semesters of instruction) in duration for full time students. However, many students take a fourth year to complete the final thesis. Please consult with your thesis supervisor should you need to prolong your studies for this reason.

Students may also apply to study abroad for a semester or two as part of the Erasmus+ programme. However, as courses and credits are not exactly equivalent, this may result in a prolongation of study at the Department in order to fulfil core requirements.
