Academic achievements (the student workload) at Lund University are measured according to a credit system. 1.5 credits equal approximately one week of full-time studies. Thus, after one semester of successful full-time studies (participating according to requirements and passing the examinations) you will be awarded 30 credits.
Courses at the Centre usually consist of 7.5 or 15 credits each. Courses are always taken consecutively one at a time, so that there are no over-lapping courses.

Autumn (fall) semester 2012: Sep 3, 2012 to Jan 20, 2013
Spring semester 2013: Jan 21 to June 9
