Academic load & credit

During each semester, the students will take a variety of courses, each of which is awarded a number of 'credits.' A credit is a unit of study. Most courses carry 3 credits, Universities usually expect students to complete 132-160 credit hours for an undergraduate degree, and the required to maintain a full course load of at least 12-18 credits per semester.
