In order to obtain their Diploma students have to complete successfully 40 courses each of them corresponding to 6 ECTS:

**32**Mandatory structures**3**Specialization mandatory courses**3**Specialization elective courses**2**General elective courses

Students have the possibility to undertake a Diploma Thesis (courses Diploma Thesis I and II) in a subject of their specialization which stands for two specialization elective courses.

The minimum number of ECTS in order to receive their diploma is 240 ECTS.

The elective courses for teaching qualification are free to be taken additionally to the courses described above. Students can attend them from the beginning of their Studies. Each course of this group corresponds to 4 ECTS while the Practice in a School Unit corresponds to 10 ECST. In order to obtain the teaching qualifications students must attend at least 5 courses from this pool and perform a Precise in a School Unit.
