Study plans - basic information
General recommendations for compiling study plans
Use up-to-date and complete data on the offered subjects when compiling study plans.
The study catalog on the FI website is not continuously updated. Use the catalog for the preliminary compilation of the study plan for the next semester, but before the actual registration or enrollment, we recommend studying the information available on the IS MU in Catalog of subjects that are current. In addition, through complete statement you will get a number of useful data that the Study Catalog does not contain (course annotations, URLs with other information, requirements during the semester, method of evaluation, etc.).
When listing complete data on subjects, you can also select groups of subjects with a certain prefix (eg IB%) and thus obtain more comprehensive information with a similar structure as the list of syllabi in the Study Catalog.
Find out as much information as possible about the subjects selected for enrollment.
So that you do not have to cancel the selected subject until the beginning of the lesson because its content does not correspond to your original idea, try to find out as much information as possible in advance. In addition to a complete list of information about the subject, for example, it is advisable to go through the teacher's website, where there may be materials from previous years. Many teachers list the relevant URL in the Course Catalog.
Pay attention to the requirements that must be met during the semester.
Find out in the complete statement (item "Type of teaching and examination"), or on the website of all subjects selected for enrollment, what requirements you will have to meet during the semester. Do not write down combinations of subjects with a number of ongoing requirements that you probably cannot handle due to time or other reasons (eg solving three larger projects and two regular homework assignments during one semester, not everyone may be able to handle).
Pre-select items for more credits than you intend to enroll.
You will then be able to immediately resolve any schedule collisions. You can take selected courses that you will not enroll in a given semester for schedule reasons in one of the following semesters.
Don't write down an excessive amount of credits.
The appropriate credit load for the standard period of study is indicated in the recommended study plans, but you can change the credit load individually within the limits of the study regulations.
However, we do not recommend enrolling significantly more credits above the stated limits, especially in the first semesters of bachelor's studies. Furthermore, we do not recommend enrolling (significantly) more credits in a given semester than in the previous semester, if you had problems in successfully completing the enrolled amount of credits in the previous semester.
