Plan of study

What is a plan of study?

The plan of study is a list of academic activities (courses, exams, laboratories and other activities) that each student must complete during his/her degree programme.

Each student must present at least one plan of study before applying for graduation.

To graduate, students must have passed all courses included in their latest approved plan of study.
If, at the time of applying for graduation the courses indicated in the plan of study do not correspond to those actually passed, the student cannot graduate.

When and how to present it
Year of study and deadlines

The Programme Structure of each degree programmes indicates the programme year (2nd, 3rd or 4th year) in which the student must present a plan of study. In any case, students can access UNIMIA to find out whether they must submit a plan of study and the deadline for submission.

  • Bachelor's and single cycle degrees: from 11 January to 12 February 2021

Submitting the plan of study

For all bachelor's, master's and single cycle degrees, the plan of study is submitted online by accessing Study Plan online services directly or from UNIMIA.

Once the plans of study are submitted - starting the day after the deadline - those that satisfy the curricular requirements set out in the degree programme regulations are automatically approved by the system, unless otherwise provided for by the relevant Course Coordination Committee.

The student may also add elective courses to the plan of study. Whether the selected courses are coherent with the course of study, for cases in which it is not already established by the degree programme Regulations, is assessed on a case-by-case basis by the relevant Course Coordination Committee.

Only approved plans of study are entered into the student's academic record.
