Programmes of Studies
The programmes of studies of the University of Macedonia are based on credit hours. One credit hour is normally equivalent to a 45-minute "class" per week for each semester. A "class" may take the form of a tutorial, laboratory, lecture, seminar, or practice according to the requirements of a particular departmental programme. A student is qualified for a degree after the successful completion of a programme of studies offered by a department. To graduate from the University, a student must successfully complete the number of credit hours as described and acquired in the Programme of the Department.
