About our Courses
The Faculty of Law offers a large number of courses taught in English. The courses consist of lectures, lessons, seminars, individual studies and teaching in base groups.
The studies are based on a two semester system. The autumn semester runs from the beginning of September to the middle of January and the spring semester from the middle of January to the beginning of June. All advanced level courses, including the law courses in English, run for ten or twenty weeks.
Credits and grades
Courses taken will be noted with the Swedish grading system but also in the ECTS grading system. The advanced level courses represent 15 or 30 ECTS-credits each. One week corresponds with 1.5 ECTS-credits. The total number of credits per academic year is 60 ECTS. You have the option either to take one “A period course” and one “B period course” worth 15 ECTS-credits each or one “A+B period course” of 30 ECTS-credits.
