COURSE GUIDE
COURSE GUIDE

The undergraduate program of studies of the Department of Statistics has a similar structure to the programs of other European Universities, especially those with which the Department of Statistics has bilateral cooperation agreements. The program is based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS ). Every course has been assigned a specific number of credits as shown in the analytical Program of Studies.

To determine each courses ECTS, overall requirements are taken into account (lectures, assignments, required preparation etc).

To obtain a bachelor's degree, students must earn a total of 240 ECTS credits.

All program courses are assigned with 8 ECTS credits and 4 teaching hours weekly.

There are 14 compulsory courses.
COURSES CATEGORIES
Courses are divided into 2 basic categories:
 14 Compulsory courses
 Optional courses which are either
 Offered by the Statistics Department
 Offered by other Departments
Compulsory courses are offered during the 6 first semester (8 in the first year, 4 in the second year and 2 in the third).
During the last 2 semesters, no optional courses are offered.
During the first two semesters, students can enroll in courses whose corresponding ECTS’s do not exceed 32 per semester.
During the remaining semesters, students can enroll in courses whose corresponding ECTS’s do not exceed 40 per semester.
During the final two semesters, students can exceed the 40 ECTS’s per semester only for “Practical Projects”.
After the fourth year, students can enroll in courses whose corresponding ECTS’s do not exceed 48 per semester.
When choosing courses to enroll in each semester, compulsory courses from previous semesters that are not successfully completed by the student, and are offered in the specific semester, must precede all others.
Besides the 14 compulsory courses corresponding to 112 ECTS’s, to complete the remaining required ECTS’s, a student must obtain at least 72 ECTS’s coming from optional courses offered by the Department. The remaining 56 ECTS’s required for graduation can come either from the Statistics Department offered courses either from other University Departments.
A course table is announced each academic year, and is depending on the courses offered and lecturer’s availability. Some optional courses might not be offered if there is not an available lecturer.
When graduating, a student is able to obtain a certified statement of PC knowledge, equivalent to the ECDL.
Students have the opportunity to attend courses to a corresponding section in a University abroad, through the ERASMUS + program.
