Academic year and semesters
The academic year at Konstfack University is divided in two semesters: autumn and spring. The autumn semester usually starts in the first week of September and extends to the middle of January. The spring semester then continues until the first week of June. It is very common that the semesters differs internationally. Some students need to be back at their home university before the end of our semester but we can sometimes work on finding and individual solution. Once you have been admitted and arrived to Konstfack we advise you to make an appointment with your tutor at Ädellab and go through the details of your stay here.

One week of full-time studies corresponds to 1,5 credits (or ECTS). One semester of full-time studies is equal to 30 credits (or ECTS). The grades are Pass (G or Godkänt) or Fail (U or Underkänt).

It is not possible to extend your exchange period outside the exchange program agreements.
