Recommended study plan for students starting in Spring 2016 and earlier

Mandatory courses constitute the core of the program. All of them must be completed in the course of study. In addition, the program offers optional courses. The number of optional courses taken must be such that the credit requirements for optional courses are fulfilled. Credits are awarded for successful completion of the courses. In order to be able to register for the final Master’s exam in Energy Security Studies, students should earn a total number of 120 credits, out of which 54 credits should be earned in mandatoryy courses and 66 credits in optional courses. Out of the 66 optional-course credits, 18 credits can be earned in courses that are not part of the Energy Security Studies program.

In case the ECTS value of the mandatory courses is changed during your studies and number of credits for mandatory courses is lower due to this change, the students are required to compensate for the missing credits by taking some optional courses of the appropriate ECTS value
