Number of student FTE

Student full-time equivalent (FTE) is used for measuring the activity of full-time programmes. 1 student FTE is defined as study activity corresponding to the workload of one academic year, and is equivalent to 60 ECTS points. Students who pass no exams and therefore earn no ECTS points (for instance due to inactivity) produce no FTEs.

Student FTE figures are calculated 1. september each year.
