FAQ: Can I take more than ten courses per year?

The study programme is designed so that students have a workload of 40 hours plus per week. Each semester, students take four courses in parallel during the 16-week period (September-December, February-May), plus one course intensively in the 4-week period (January, June). This adds up to a total of ten courses per year.

It is possible to take more than ten courses per year, but this is not advised during your first year. You can take extra courses during your second and third years with approval from AUC.
