For every module which a student has passed, the student receives a certain number of credit points (CP) corresponding to workload. Calculations include attendance hours, private study and prep time for the module's final exam. One credit point stands for 30 hours per week (the so-called workload). Bachelor's programs contain a total of 180 credit points, which means that students should select their modules such that after three years, they have acquired 180 credit points.
