Unlike other programs, which follow the Bologna Bachelor and Master cycles (either 3+2 or 4+1 years), programmes in the field of medical science (studies of medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine) are integrated into a unique six-year cycle carrying 360 ECTS points. This type of study programme integrates Bachelor and Master academic studies into one cycle.

Studies of pharmacy are also integrated into a unique cycle, lasting five years and carrying 300 ECTS points.
