In accordance with no.2 of article 15 of the Academic Regulation, the part-time registration is conditioned, in the academic year, on the registration for a number of curricular units less than or equal to 30 ECTS credits and, in the semester, less than or equal to15 ECTS credits.
The registration for the courses delivered at the UC is undertaken after the enrolment, if it derives from an application, or at the beginning of each academic year for UC Students, within a deadline established by a Rector’s Order.
registration is automatically recognised by InforEstud@nte as being on a
full-time or part-time basis, and it asks the student to confirm his/her
registration on that basis.
NOTE: Regarding the multiannual Theses or other PhD works, it is necessary to choose between the full-time and the part-time system if it is available. Check further information at Frequently Asked Questions for PhD Students »
- The tuition fee to be paid by the student registered on a part-time basis is 60 per cent of the amount of the tuition fee paid by a student registered on a full-time basis.
- This system cannot be cumulated with other benefits awarded by the UC concerning the tuition fee reduction.
- The part-time registration is counted as 0.5 for the purpose of applying the expiration system.
- Whenever there are ECTS credits/curricular units limits associated with special situations such as the access to examination periods or grades improvement, among others, the limit applicable to the student registered on a part time basis is half the limit applicable to the student registered on a full-time basis, rounded to the nearest unit, unless otherwise specified.
Typically, students should register on a part time basis if, for any reason (for example, working-students) they are unable to proceed their studies at the same pace as other students registered on a full-time basis. Thus, they can take twice as long to complete their course and pay a lower annual tuition fee.
