A Bachelor’s degree furnishes students with a general qualification for diverse career opportunities but also serves as a qualification to continue their education in a Master’s program. Students earn their degree after they have acquired the necessary number of credits by successfully completing all of the modules and by complying with the conditions laid down in the study regulations. Successfully passing a module requires a formal assessment, which may be in the form of a written or oral examination, presentation, written work, etc.
