Courses in English and credits

A large number of our international students are taking courses in English not only at the Faculty of Theology but also at another institute or department at the University of Copenhagen. All courses offered in English at the University of Copenhagen are listed on the course website http://studies.ku.dk/exchange/course-information/online-course-catalogue/

All courses in English at the Faculty of Theology are offered to both BA and MA students. BA and MA students will be in the same course but the exam requirements will not be the same.

A full study load for one semester is 30 ECTS credits. Be aware that credits for courses are only awarded if you meet the course and exam requirements. Studying is a full time job, and in addition to attending classes, you will be expected to spend much time reading and doing research in the library.
