Because course offerings may change from year to year, it is possible that not all eligible courses are listed above. Participants in this program who wish to enroll in any course not listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs by email to request approval. Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses that are not expressly approved by OTP.With some courses, exams are regularly scheduled after the Christmas holiday. In this case, students should speak to the professor at the beginning of the semester to arrange a date and time to take the exam in December.
Credit is awarded in accordance with the ABA's standard class formula (12.5 hours of class time including exam time, plus 30 hours of preparation and studying outside of class, per one credit hour.) Students may be asked to verify the number of minutes each course meets in order to confirm the number of credits that the student will receive upon completion of their study abroad program. See the Study Abroad Policy for details.
Courses at ESADE are graded on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest grade, and 5.0 the minimum to pass.
