Study Plans

Student’s learning activities are listed in study plans.

Each year students have to submit their study plans online within the dates stated by the administrative office. A communication with instructions and deadline will be sent to your e-mail address.

Each study course and eventually each curriculum has its own standard study plan. Within the standard study plan guidelines is possible for students to make some individual choices.

Here is a glossary and some directions on how to use your study plan:

  • Learning Activity: name of the class and identification code
  • CFU: number of credits students gain when they pass the exam, more the credits more study work the course requires (more classes, more materials, etc)
  • : this is just a number to help you count the number of learning activities, it does not mean that you have to pass the exam in a certain order
  • Compulsory: if this box is selected it means that the course is mandatory and cannot be changed in your study plan, usually compulsory exam are the ones that characterize your major
  • Sector: the scientific area that the course is part of
  • Type of learning activity: learning activity are categorazed by their relation to the main scientific area of the study course and there are four possible kinds:
    • Distinctive: these are learning activities who build the core of knowledge in the chosen subject
    • Related/Supplementary: these are learining activities whose scientific importance is related or additional to the scientific knowledge gained with the distinctive subject
    • Optional: students can make individual choices by choosing learning activities from the optional group
    • Other: this group of learning activities includes activities other than courses or classess such as internships, lab research and so on.
  • Period: learning activities can take place in the first semester/second semester or go on for the full year.
