The normal credit load for a full-time student is 30 ECTS credits during a semester and 12 to 18 ECTS credits during the Summer session. Students with a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.0 or higher may be permitted to enroll for a maximum of 42 ECTS credits during a semester and may continue to do so for as long as the 3.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average is maintained. Other students may be allowed to enroll for more than 36 ECTS credits in a semester if they are repeating at least one course or they require a few extra credits during their last semester in order to graduate. In no case can the number of ECTS credits exceed 42. Students who are residing in Cyprus on a student temporary resident permit are required to enroll for at least 30 ECTS credits in each semester if they are pursuing an undergraduate program or at least 24 ECTS credits if they are pursuing a postgraduate program. Such students can enroll for the number of ECTS credits they need to graduate, even if it is less than the relevant minimum number of credits, if they are graduating from a master’s degree, bachelor’s degree or a higher diploma program.
Local or European Union students or students who are not residing in Cyprus on a student temporary resident permit may elect to study on a part-time basis by enrolling for fewer than 30 undergraduate ECTS credits or fewer than 24 postgraduate ECTS credits in a semester.
