Studies at the Faculties of European Studies and Communication are taught via modular system, meaning extensive and rigorous work for four weeks, at the end of which students have to pass an exam. In the modular system, most modules take one month to complete (i.e., short modules), while others extend over the full semester (long modules).

Combination of courses from the different departments are allowed, however this might lead to high possibility of overlaps and dropped courses.
Study subjects of the Law programme are taught only in Spring semester.
