This article concerns all degree students regardless of whether they are studying in the new degree programmes or according to the old degree structures. 

All first-cycle degrees include career orientation and training for expert duties with a total scope of at least 10 credits.

If a second-cycle degree includes full-time career orientation, each full-time month of completed orientation is the equivalent of no less than five credits. For well-grounded reasons, exceptions can be made due to the nature of a specific field. All second-cycle degrees include career orientation and planning.
