What is PAKETH?

PAKETH stands for “Prüfungen und Akademischer Kalender an der ETH” which translates to Exams and Academic Calender at ETH. The project was initiated by Günther Dissertori and has the goal to reform teaching at ETH in a sustainable manner.

The main ideas of PAKETH are a week of vacation during autumn semester, shorter study phases in order to offer more vacation as well as making the system of exam blocks more flexible.
