Preparing the study plan

Information for students who completed a study period abroad

Students who put elective credits with the indication of the sector only in their learning agreement, must submit in their online study plan. It is not possible to select the credits as they are indicated in the learning agreement (for ex. 15 ECTS credits of SECS-P/08). Therefore, it is necessary to select some “backup” courses. Then, if the student asks for the recognition of all the 12 elective credits at the end of the experience abroad, it will not be necessary to complete the “backup” exams and it will be possible to ask to the student administration office to delete them. On the contrary, it will be possible for the student to take the “backup” exams indicated in the online study plan.
