Preparing the study plan

Information on how to prepare and submit your study plan.

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 submitted only by enrolled students who have paid their tuition fees and, in the case of international students, who hold a valid residence permit.

Every year, HEM students are asked to pick some elective courses from the learning offer, so that you can build your study plan. 

How and When

Students can complete the Study Plan on Studenti On-Line ("Study Plan") in the following two periods: 

1st period:  17 October 2017 - 4 November 2017
2nd period: 26 February 2018 - 10 March 2018

The study plan can be submitted via Studenti Online, accessing the website using their University usernames and passwords.
