Law-Study programme: How many study credits may/must I take in one academic year?

Solution

We advise you to take the 60 study credits of the model programme, as you will then have no conflicting class or exam schedules. Should you choose to diverge from the model programme, you can take up to 66 study credits in a personalised programme. Keep in mind that you are responsible for the feasibility of your programme (class and exam schedules as well as semester allocation). You could also take a look at the following questions: ‘What is a personalised programme?’; ‘How do I create a personalised programme?’; and ‘What are study credits for?’.

Students who are able to graduate as a bachelor may be given permission to exceed the 66 study credit limit insofar as their personalised programme contains no more than 70 study credits, and insofar as they will have finished their Bachelor of Law degree within three years.

Students who are able to graduate as a master may be given permission to exceed the 66 study credit limit insofar as their personalised programme contains no more than 78 study credits. More details can be found under the question: ‘Can I take more than 66 study credits?’.

Students under study progress control or with insufficient study credits in their learning account may have their maximum number of study credits limited (see UDB codex, in Dutch). In principle you will be notified about this by a faculty member.

The English-language Master of Laws programme does not permit the combination of two degree programmes (i.e. a bachelor with a master).

There is no minimum number of study credits you are required to take. If you are 25 years old or younger, you must take a minimum of 27 study credits if you want to remain eligible for a family allowance. This minimum does not apply for graduating students (i.e. in their ‘diploma year’).
