What is the Study Plan?

The Study Plan (PDS) is the list of educational activities (exams, laboratories, other activities) that the student can carry out during each academic year; it has to be submitted – in any case – within the deadlines indicated in the "Deadlines" section through the Online Services tool.

The Study Plan is valid for one year. This means that every year, you must include in your Plan the request for new courses/educational activities and courses of previous years that you have not yet passed.

Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Study programmes

For Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Study programmes, it will be enough to enter the courses/educational activities only once in the Study Plan and these, if you do not pass the exam, will remain for the following years. An exception are the course Laboratories provided by School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering that, if not passed, must be inserted once again in the Study plan.
