How the accumulated study activity requirement works

The study activity requirement at SDU is a so-called accumulated study activity requirement

This means that if you have not passed the minimum requirement of 45 ECTSA, a notice will be sent out to you. You can read more about how the accumulated study activity requirement at SDU works below.

Accumulation at bachelor’s and professional bachelor’s programmes

In the bachelor’s and professional bachelor’s programmes, the university will check whether students fulfil the requirements or not in the following ways. You will be notified on your student e-mail if you don't fulfill these criteria. 

After the first study-year

If you have not passed 45 ECTS, you will receive a notice on your student e-mail.

After the second study-year

If you have not passed the 45 ECTS during your second year, you will receive a notice warning you, that you risk being expelled from your programme.

If you have not passed 90 ECTS (45 ECTS per year) after your second study-year.

After the third study-year

If you have not passed the minimum of 90 ECTS during your third year, you will receive a warning that you risk being expelled from your programme.

If you have not passed a total of 135 ECTS (45 ECTS per year) after the third study-year, a notice will be sent to you on your student e-mail.

After the fourth study-year

If you have not finished your bachelor’s degree within the time limit specified for your programme, you will be expelled. You can read more about the rules for time limits and when you, at the latest, need to finish your programme here.

 

Specially for students enrolled in a professional bachelor’s programme (including Bachelor of Engineering):

A notice will be sent to you through your student e-mail, if you have not passed a total of 157.5 ECTS after the first three and a half years.
After the fourth study-year, students who have been given a notice after the third year and who have not passed a total of 135 ECTS, will be discharged.

 

Accumulation during master’s degree programmes

In the master’s programmes, the university will check whether students live up to the requirements or not in the same way as for the bachelor’s programmes. You will be notified on your student e-mail if you don't fulfill these criteria.  

After the 1st year:

If you have not passed a minimum of 45 ECTS, you will receive a notice on your student e-mail.

After the 2nd year:

If you have not passed the 45 ECTS during your second year, you will receive a notice warning you, that you risk being expelled from your programme.

If you have not passed 90 ECTS (45 ECTS per year) after your second study-year, you will receive a notice though your student e-mail.

After 2 1/2 study-years.

All master's degree students not living up to the rules for finishing their bachelor’s and master's degree programme will be discharged.
