FAQ

I have not yet completed the assessment. Do I first need to do so before I can register for advanced level modules under the transitional regulations?

No. Students who have registered for the Bachelor of Law UZH by the end of Spring Semester 2021 and who have not yet completed the assessment level will automatically be registered in the advanced level as of Fall Semester 2021 and may register for all assessment and advanced level modules accordingly.

Will I lose the ECTS credits I’ve already earned as a result of the Study Reform?

No, ECTS credits will not be lost as a result of the reform. Modules that were completed successfully before the changeover will be credited toward the revised degree program on the basis of the number of ECTS credits received in accordance with the provisions of the old program regulations.

Example: Students who have successfully completed Criminal Law I in accordance with the old regulations will receive 15 ECTS credits even if the module will only be worth 12 ECTS credits under the new regulations. Conversely, students who have successfully completed Public Law I under the old regulations will receive 15 ECTS credits even if the module is worth 18 ECTS credits after the reform.
