Preparing the study plan

Information on how to prepare and present a study plan.

1st year and 2nd year students need to submit their study plan according to the following modalities to communicate their choices (curriculum and elective courses) and to participate in the corresponding exams.

 

What is a study plan?

The study plan is the complete set of exams that you need to sit in order to graduate. Some exams are compulsory, while others are elective.

A study plan can be presented by properly enrolled students who have paid their tuition fees and, in the case of international students, who hold a valid residence permit.

When to present your study plan

You can present and amend your study plan in two periods during the academic year.

For the academic year 2020/21, the study plan can be presented during the following periods:

1st year students

  • From September 14th, 2020 to November 9th, 2020
  • From January 18th, 2021 to February 15th, 2021

2nd year students

  • From September 14th, 2020 to October 8th, 2020
  • From October 12th to November 9th, 2020 (possibility to also include Transferable Skills / Soft Skills: check the last paragraph of this page). *
  • From January 18th, 2021 to February 15th, 2021

 * For the 2nd year students and the students enrolled in years following the 2nd ("fuori corso") the online study plans will not be available on October 9th, 10th and 11th 2020. This is in order to proceed with the update of the IT systems and to make the option of the Soft Skills available.

Students presenting their study plan within November 9th can modify it for the current academic year during the subsequent period of presentation.

Following expiry of the deadlines, the last study plan presented will be deemed valid and no further amendments may be made.

Once the study plan has been filled in online, it is immediately available on the AlmaEsami platform.

ATTENTION: students intending to graduate within the academic year 2019/20 (=within the graduation session of March 2021), cannot present the study plan and modify the teachings which had been selected before. 

Students who proceed with the payment of the first enrollment rate for the subsequent academic year and modify their study plan will not be able to present their graduation request for March 2021.

Attention: students enrolled on academic years subsequent to the first one, who have the intention to change a teaching related to years preceding the year they are currently enrolled on, CANNOT take nor verbalize the modified exam until the end of the lessons of the current year.

How to present your study plan

Online study plan

To complete and present their study plan, students need to enter their username/password on the Studenti Online platform. The service is active only during the above mentioned periods foreseen for the completion of the study plan. 

After making the desired choices, remember to click on "save" so that your study plan can be presented correctly.

It is recommended to always print a paper copy of the study plan. In fact, the paper copy represents the only instrument of control in case of formal or substantial irregularities which could occur to the study plan once it has been uploaded on
Almaesami

Paper study plan

Students enrolled for a "seconda laurea", students having made a change of curriculum and students of Fashion Culture and Management (FCM - code 9022) need to complete and present the study plan exclusively in paper form. The Paper study plan forms will be available for download from an attachment box on the right. Please get in touch with the FAST/FCM Programme Coordinator for further indications. 

Students having transferred to FAST from another degree programme or from another University and having asked for and obtained the recognition of credits can now fill the study plan online.

How to fill in the paper study plan:

Students need to fill in the study plan corresponding to the year on which they are enrolled (1st or 2nd of FAST, or as repeating student of FCM) inserting an "X" next to the title of the didactic activity they wish to choose. In case of elective learning activities, they must write down the details of the learning activity chosen.

Students intending to substitute some of the exams foreseen for the precedent academic years, need to insert an "S" next to the title of the didactic activity they wish to substitute and an "X" next to the didactic activity they wish to insert in the new study plan.

Complete the paper study plan by inserting your enrollment number ("matricola"), surname, name, date, cell phone number, e-mail address, and sign it.

Students having already presented their study plan for the current academic year but wishing to insert new substitutions, need to write "modifica/modification" at the top of the paper study plan.

Students of Fashion Culture and Management enrolling in the a.y. 2020/21 as repeating students ("fuori corso") need to fill in the study plan using the appropriate form of the box "FCM - PAPER STUDY PLAN FORMS".

The Degree Programme in Fashion Culture and Management is not active anymore, so the choice of the study plan is limited to the elective learning activities (including the Soft Skills) and the final examination.

FCM's study plans are not automatically approved: the paper form must be sent to cdlm.fashion@unibo.it within the deadlines indicated, to be evaluated by the Degree Programme.

Study plan and exams: When to participate in an exam

It is possible to participate in an exam only if the corresponding didactic activity has been inserted in the study plan and the lesson period has been concluded. This is why it is always necessary to make sure that your study plan has been correctly filled in and that it had been correctly saved and is visible on the AlmaEsami platform. It is very useful to print your study plan or to save a copy in PDF.

Furthermore, to participate in an exam it is necessary that the lesson period of the corresponding didactic activity had been concluded. For further information, consult the didactic calendar and the lesson timetable of your degree programme.

 

Approval of your study plan

If you follow the regular set of exams foreseen for your degree programme, there is no need for assessment and your plan is approved automatically and input to your career file. 

In case of specific requirements (e.g. credit recognition or study plan delay request), approval or otherwise will be decided by the Degree Programme's Board.

FCM's study plans are not automatically approved: the paper form must be sent to cdlm.fashion@unibo.it within the deadlines indicated, to be evaluated by the Degree Programme.

Study plan delay requests presented by FAST/FCM students will be subject to the decision of the Degree Programme's Board.  Considering that the deadlines for the choice of didactic activities and for the presentation of study plans are annually decided by the Degree Programmes' Boards on the basis of the guidelines established by the competent organs (art. 10, comma 5 of the University's didactic regulations), students shouldn't make choices beyond the foreseen deadlines, but should enroll on the subsequent academic year to have the right to modify again their study plan. The exception to this rule needs to be discussed and agreed upon during the Degree Programme's Board.

The Study Plan Delay form must be requested to cdlm.fashion@unibo.it.

Transferable Skills (Soft Skills)

The online plans will also present the elective learning activities for the development of Soft Skills activated by the University for the a. y. 2020/21, as part of the Transversal Competencies Project. For more information, please visit the following page: https://www.unibo.it/en/teaching/innovation-in-teaching-and-learning/transferable-skills/Transferable-skills

Soft Skills activities can only be included in the study plan from 12 October 2020, which is a common date for all the students. This is done to ensure equal opportunity of choice, since a limited number of places are available for each learning activity.

If you are interested in including Soft Skills activities in your study plan, starting from 12 October 2020 you will be able to re-enter your online study plan to integrate/modify the activities already included.
