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

The study programme is designed so that students have a workload of 40 hours or more per week. Each semester, students take four courses in parallel during the 16-week periods (September-December, February-May), and one course intensively in the 4-week periods (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 for first-year students. You can take extra courses during your second and third years with approval from AUC.
