Course Selection

The study load for exchange in students at UIC is between 15 credits (5 courses) to 22 credits (7 courses) per semester. To get a real feel of the academic exchange, we encourage exchange in students to enroll for 5 (or 6) courses per semester. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home institution before you submit your application. 

You are free to choose and enroll in any courses you want (provided you meet the requirements of the courses). For credit transfer you should confirm your course selection with your academic advisor at your home institution. Please choose and list on the application form six to eight courses in order of priority of which you wish to study.(Six to eight courses are needed to avoid time tabling and other problems.) Based on the information, UIC will try to pre-register you in these courses. You need to be aware however, that as at your home institution, it may not always be possible for you to register for every class you choose.

Please note that you are required to stay in UIC throughout the semester(s). Early examinations cannot be arranged.  Please bear this in mind when you submit your application. If you cannot stay through the examination period, you should delay until you can come for a semester in which you can remain throughout the full examination period.
