Regulations Governing Bachelor's and Master's Studies

The framework ordinance governing study in the Faculty of Science's Bachelor's and Master's degree programs sets down the general terms of Bachelor's and Master's degree programs at the Faculty of Science. The program regulations governing study in the Faculty of Science's Bachelor's and Master's degree programs contains detailed information on all the major and minor programs (modules, exams, and credits) on offer.
