Please note:

The home university of the student concerned has the sole right to decide on the number and type of courses to be taken. The ECTS credits categorized above are a proposal of the Faculty of Law at the University of Würzburg. The courses may be weighted by the home institution in a different way.

 

*Lectures are an essential part of the total workload in the humanities, and normally do not finish with an examination. An oral or written examination can only be taken with the previous agreement of the instructor.

 

**Semesterwochenstunde (SWS)  = Unterrichtsstunde pro Woche der Vorlesungszeit/ hour per week during the semester
