Selection stage


At least 43 ECTS credits must be passed in the initial stage of degree courses within a maximum of 2 academic years (4 years if a course is taken on a part-time basis and 3 years if it is taken as a blended learning course) in order to meet progression requirements. Credits obtained by means of recognition, validation or adaptation do not count towards progression.
