What is a study plan?
The study plan is the complete set of exams that you need to sit in order to graduate.
Each degree programme envisages a certain number of learning activities (course units, laboratories, other activities): some are compulsory, others are elective. The sum of the compulsory and elective activities represents your study plan.
When compiling your study plan, you can choose some exams from a predetermined list (optional) and others with complete freedom (free choice) in order to achieve the credits required for graduation.
You can also submit an individual study plan including courses that are not listed in your Study Programme In this case, you have to submit the official request (Istanza al Rettore) to the Student’s Affair Office and get the approval by the Study Program Board.
Extra credit exams
