Study duration and study load

Value of the degree programme

The part-time degree programmes at the RUG are fully-fledged degree programmes; with regard to admission requirements, certificates, content of the teaching programme and examinations they are completely comparable with a full-time degree programme. The main differences lie in the number of contact and homework hours per week, the total study duration and the fact that the lectures are sometimes given in the evenings.

Study duration and study load per week

The normal four-year programme (3-year Bachelor’s programme plus 1-year Master’s programme) for Philosophy, Frisian Language and Culture, History, Law and Theology can be stretched over seven or eight years. The programme in Greek and Latin Language and Culture can be completed in six years. You will need two academic years to complete the propaedeutic phase.

The average study load (lectures and homework) is about twenty hours a week for all part-time programmes.
