According to the Bologna System one Credit ECTS corresponds to 25 hours of workload for the student. We foresee normally eight hours of teaching per Credit ECTS, the rest being dedicated to reading, exam preparation, personal research etc.
This system is different from the one traditionally used in the UK, the US or Australia. According to the Bologna system 60 Credits ECTS which make up the entire MAS / LLM programme correspond to roughly 1'500 hours of work. Over one year of full time study you should count approximately 30-35 hours (including reading, exam preparation etc.) per week which even allows you several weeks of holiday time to discover the beautiful region and the social life of the Lake Geneva Region.
