Course Load, ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) & KU credits
Course load indicates how many credits you take per semester. KU students usually take five courses per semester (for an average of 15 KU credits which is equal to 30 ECTS). Although there is no requirement for exchange students, at least three courses are recommended. It is up to your home institution to approve your course load.
Course time-tables are coded as B1, B2, B3, A1, A2, A3, etc. B stands for 75 minute long courses and A stands for 50 minute courses. For instance:
A1: 09:30-10:20 A5: 13:30-14:20
A2: 10:30-11:20 A6: 14:30-15:20
A3: 11:30-12:20 A7: 15:30-16:20
