Exams, ECTS Credits and Grading

Exams

The mode of study for each course is determined in the curriculum. The modes of study vary according to different courses. In addition to a written examination, the mode can be, for example, a material exam, a written assignment, a learning journal, or an oral presentation.
Written exams are on Thursdays from 13 to 16. Some of the Turku Law School examinations are arranged electronically. For courses which have examination as assessment method at least four exam possibilities are arranged. More detailed information about exams can be found from the Faculty's intranet page when student has received her/his study right.

 

 

ECTS Credits

Studies are measured in credits (ECTS). The recommended number of competed studies during an academic year is 60 credits, and this corresponds to an average of 1600 hours of work. One credit is equivalent to 26.7 student working hours. Courses are designed so that the student is able to complete the course in the given time while studying full-time.

Studies completed in study weeks are converted into credits by a factor of 1.7, unless stated otherwise.
