Course Load Regulations

The minimum enrollment rules regulate enrollment conditions and minim requirements for the number of credits that students must pass to continue with their studies.

These rules are based on the guidelines established by the University of Barcelona and passed by its Board of Trustee on July 26, 2012.

The basic elements of these rules are based on two variables: the number of credits required for enrollment and the number of credits that must be passed.

Furthermore, there are different requirements for the first year of enrollment and subsequent years.

Finally, the center, through its Administration, has the power to reasonably and impartially resolve any exceptional situations in accordance with the interests and needs of each student's education, as well as to deal with any personal cases that it sees fit to resolve.

These rules are applicable to all students in undergraduate and master's programs at the EUHT CETT-UB.

Recognized and transferred credits do not count as passed credits for the purposes of minimum enrollment, and are also not taken into consideration in terms of the number of credits the student must enroll in.

Students will be seen to have abandoned a degree program when two consecutive academic years pass without them enrolling in courses. In this case, they must apply for readmission in writing to the EUHT CETT-UB Administration.

 

Calculating Credits

Recognized and transferred credits do not count as passed credits for the purposes of minimum enrollment, and are also not taken into consideration in terms of the number of credits the student must enroll in.

 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES


 

Scope of Application

These rules are applicable to all students in undergraduate programs at the EUHT CETT-UB.

There are two types of students in terms of applying the different types of minimum enrollment requirements:

- Newly admitted students

- Regular students (which includes all those who have taken the first year of the degree or who have joined the degree program through some type of recognition)

These two types of students may be in different situations:

- In compliance with minimum enrollment requirements

- In a grace period (of which there are different types depending on the type of student and stage of the degree)

In accordance with these possible combinations, the type of procedure that the student must follow will be determined, as will the necessary follow-up procedures.

 

Minimum Enrollment Requirements and Enrollment Conditions during the first year

The first year that a student is admitted to an undergraduate degree at the EUHT CETT-UB, he or she must enroll in either 60 credits (full time), or 30 credits (part time)

If students have enrolled in 60 credits: at the end of the first year they must have passed at least 18 in order to continue their studies.

If students have enrolled in 30 credits: at the end of the first year they must have passed at least 6 in order to continue their studies.

Students that do not meet this requirement at the end of their first year may not enroll in the following year without having applied for a grace period authorization from Academic Coordination.

If students are authorized to enroll in a grace period situation, they may only enroll in the credits they failed and must pass a minimum of 50% of those credits by the end of their second year of enrollment.

 

Students in their second year of studies or higher

These rules also apply to students in their first year who have fully or partially taken other university studies at any university.

In General: students must enroll in between a minimum of 18 credits (unless they have fewer remaining to complete their studies) and a maximum of 60.

·        Full time students: when enrolled in between 46 and 60 credits

·        Part time students: when enrolled in between 18 and 45 credits

If a student would like to enroll in mandatory credits from a higher year, he or she must also enroll in all of the pending mandatory credits from lower years.

Students may be authorized by the EUHT CETT-UB Administration to enroll in more than 60 credits (up to a maximum of 75) in an academic year, as long as they are not in a grace period.

In this case students are limited to enrolling in 60 new credits per academic year.

Exceptionally, and when it is justified, Academic Coordination, though an express ruling, may authorize a student to enroll in more than 75 credits, up to a maximum of 78 per academic year, with the same limitation of a maximum of 60 new credits.

In this case, the student must present a written request using the form they can find in the Center's Registrar's Office.

If a student does not pass at least 50% of the credits he or she is enrolled in for two years in a row, he or she may not remain in the degree program.

If, at the end of the academic year, a student has not passed the credits required and cannot continue his or her studies, he or she may request an exceptional year through a written application to the degree program's Academic Coordination.

If the student is authorized to enroll in a grace period, he or she may only enroll in a maximum of 60 credits, including failed credits and new credits.

He or she will be required to pass 50% of the credits he or she is enrolled in during the grace period by the end of the academic year. Otherwise, he or she will not be able to continue their studies.

 

Finishing students

A "finishing" student is a student who in enrolling in the last 75 credits they need to complete their studies.

Students who have passed at least 165 credits and who have enrolled in all of their remaining credits have the following rights in order to help them finalize their studies:

In the second semester, they can re-enroll in a course that they did not pass during the first semester.

In the above case, in the second semester students must enroll in all of the credits remaining for them to finish their studies.

Within this group, if students have just 24 credits remaining to finish their studies they:

·        Must enroll in all of the credits they need to finish their degree

·        Have the right to request an extraordinary exam, regardless of the semester the class is taught. This must be requested during enrollment at the beginning of the year.

 

Students on Academic Study Abroad Programs

Students participating in study abroad programs are exempt from fulfilling the requirements established in the Minimum Enrollment Rules for the year they are studying at another university.

Only under these circumstances are students allowed to enroll in up to a maximum of 75 credits, which may all be new.

Grace period students: May not apply for study abroad programs.

 

Withdrawal from Undergraduate Studies

If a student does not enroll in an academic year and then returns the following year, the minimum enrollment rules for students in the second year or above will be applied to him or her.

If a student withdraws after having passed some credits, he or she must apply for re-admission in writing to Academic Coordination, who will decide under what conditions the student may continue their studies.

If a student withdraws from an undergraduate degree without having passed any credits, he or she must apply for a new spot via university pre-registration.

 

 
MASTER'S STUDIES


 

Scope of Application

This section is applicable to all students in master's programs at the EUHT CETT-UB.

 

Enrollment Conditions

Students can enroll in a minimum of 20 credits (unless if they have fewer left to complete the master's) and a maximum of 60 credits between the two semesters of the academic year.

Students who enroll in between 20 and 48 credits follow a part-time schedule, and those who enroll in above 49 follow a full-time schedule.

Exceptionally, and when it is justified, the Master's Academic Coordination, though an express ruling, may authorize a student to enroll in fewer than 20 credits, down to a minimum of 18 credits per academic year.

 

Credits to be passed

Students must pass a minimum of 50% of the credits they are enrolled in during the two semesters of the prior academic year.

Students who do not meet this requirement must request a grace period (link en inglés!) in order to receive a favorable report from the Director of the Master's and be able to enroll again.

Students may only request enrollment during a grace period in two academic years. Otherwise, students may not continue with their studies.

 

Withdrawal from Master's Studies

If a student withdraws from their studies, he or she must apply for re-admission in writing to Academic Coordination, who will decide under what conditions the student may continue their studies.
