Courses and course descriptions
ECTS credits have been assigned to each course providing you with 39 ECTS points on course completion in autumn semester, and 36 ECTS in spring semester.
ECTS is a learner-centered system for credit accumulation and transfer based on the transparency of learning outcomes and learning processes. ECTS credits are based on the workload of the students in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. Workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, self-study and examinations) required to achieve the expected learning outcomes.
For a Latvian person, student workload is 1600 hours for an academic year, where one credit corresponds to 40 hours of work (20 hours contact hours and 20 hours self-study).
Students can choose the course units from the list for autumn semester and from spring semester. Course units cannot be mixed for semesters.
According to Erasmus+ programme terms the student is recommended to take educational components totaling a minimum of 30 ECTS credits per semester, the students can choose appropriate course units in order to achieve 30 ECTS.
