1- Each elective course type (Departmental, Non-Departmental, and General) has specific local and ECTS credits of workload. The total number of course credits that you should fulfill must at least match these workloads. If the total local credits or the total ECTS credits that you take from any elective course type does not match the required value, an additional slot for that particular elective type will be assigned to you.
2- For example, assume that your department program requires you to take 3 non-departmental elective courses, with each course slot having 3 local credits and 4 ECTS credits. This means that the total local credits and the total ECTS credits of the 3 courses you will choose as non-departmental elective should be at least 9 and 12, respectively. If any of these conditions is not satisfied, the system will assign you an additional course slot.
Please note that if you take the required number of course credits (local and ECTS) for each elective type, you will not have any additional slots.
