FIAL reduced annual course load



Applying the ‘Educational Landscape’ Decree to all students since the 2015-16 academic year has entailed replacing the practice of allowing students to spread one year of study over two years with the practice of planning students’ annual programmes. Students authorised to take on a reduced course load register for fewer than 60 credits over the entire academic year. Authorisation to do so is granted for one academic year. If students desire a reduced course load for the following year as well, they must submit a new application; if they fail to do so or are no longer eligible for a reduced course load, they resume an annual programme of at least 60 credits.
