Program Dates

Each academic year is divided into two semesters. The fall semester runs from August to January and the spring semester runs from January to June. Each semester is divided into two periods, period A and B.

The Swedish credit system is based on 1,5 Higher Education Credits (HEC) for each week of full-time studies (approx. 40 hours). This means that a course of ten weeks equals 15 ECTS credits. 30 ECTS credits per semester or 60 HEC/ECTS credits per academic year are considered full-time study. Students are required to consult with the Penn State advisor regarding number of credits and required courses.
