Study planning

When planning your studies, take into account your schedule and the time you have available, as well as the time needed to complete your studies.

Calculation formula to support the scheduling of studies:
1 credit corresponds to 27 hours of student work. Your previous knowledge affects the time you need to study, with good basic knowledge, time can pass, while a completely new subject can take more time.

Number of hours = Number of credits x 27 hours
example. The scope of the study is 2 credits = 2 x 27 hours = 54 hours, which corresponds to approximately 8 working days.
