The Graduate Programme in Logic follows the ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System. 30 ECTS credits per semester is considered to be a normal course load. This is equivalent to about 40 hours per week and include lectures, reading, assignments, library queries, and discussions. Talented, ambitious students may manage 40 ECTS per semester.
The conversion rate between old UvA study points and ECTS credits is 1.4:1, i.e., 10 ECTS credits are equal to 7 old UvA study points. One US semester credit is 2 ECTS credits.
