A bachelor’s degree usually represents 3 years of studies, meaning 180 ECTS credits. The curriculum is divided in one first year called “propaedeutic cycle” followed by 2 years with a higher percentage of courses in the chosen field of study.
The possibility to study abroad during 1 or 2 semesters is offered in 3rd year under certain conditions.
An EPFL bachelor’s degree is an intermediary diploma. It opens the doors of various Master’s programs, at EPFL or other institutions internationally. You’ll find further details about it on the page Study Programs Structure.
