Credits and prerequisites
You have probably already seen the recommended study plan for your field and you know that the standard length of study is 3 years in a bachelor's degree (6 semesters), 2 years in a follow-up master study (4 semesters). The plan recommends to students how to organize compulsory and compulsory subjects in semesters. However, it is not necessary to keep it.
FI allows students to tailor their studies and enroll subjects when it suits you. You can spread items into 5 or more semesters. You can make a free semester and go abroad or relax for an interesting bachelor in the 3rd semester. In short, you can really do a lot of learning if you watch two things:
- Enough credits
- Compliance with prerequisite
For admission to the Final State Exam, you need to earn at least 180 credits (120 in a follow-up master's degree).
Each course in the whole MU has a certain number of credits, which you get for passing it. This number roughly corresponds to the number of hours a student spends a week on the subject.
The recommended number of credits per semester is 30.
For more information on the credit system, see Study catalog .
There is no upper limit, subjects you can enroll as much as you want, but
you can cancel the repetition of courses for a maximum of 18 credits (12 in NMgr study)
for your studies .
If you do not finish the subject successfully, it will be automatically written to you as soon as it is listed again. If you repeat the course and do not finish it successfully, your study will be terminated (you will not meet the conditions for enrollment in the next semester).
If you do not successfully end the subject and do not want it to be automatically enrolled, you may be required to cancel it. This can only be done with optional and compulsory optional subjects.
Also, when selecting courses for the semester, remember that to complete the next semester, you must successfully complete the courses for 20 credits for the past semester or 45 credits for the two past semesters. Keep the number of credits in reserve.
As a FI MU student you can enroll in courses from other MU faculties and you will be counted on credits for them. (If you have completed a course at another university, you can apply for recognition in writing at Study Department.)
The exact rules lay down MU Study and Examination Rules .
The prerequisite of the subject is a condition that must be met in order to enroll the subject.
For example, the State Final Exam is a subject that has all the required and compulsory optional subjects in your field as prerequisites.
A typical prerequisite is the successful completion of another subject. Sometimes the items are so similar that their prerequisite is that you do not have the second one enrolled or enrolled at the same time. The prerequisite may also be the teacher's approval or being a student of a particular field.
Prerequisites are always stated in IS MU in the course information.
If you choose not to follow the recommended curriculum, review the prerequisites for your compulsory subjects. You wouldn't be the first to extend, because he had planned for the last semester a subject whose prerequisite was not fulfilled.
More about credits and prerequisites can be found at MU Study and Examination Regulations, Article 6 and in particular Article 11 .
