All compact courses are intended primarily for Master's students. Courses marked with an asterisk may also be taken by undergraduate (Bachelor’s) students as electives. The remaining three courses are open to Bachelor’s students as optional courses and their credits may be later transferred as electives to the Master's level (if the student has accumulated more than 180 credits during the Bachelor’s studies). Enrolment in these compact courses is open until the start date of the course. More information can be found in the course syllabi of each course in SIS.
