Choosing the modules

We remind you that by the end of the first semester, you have to choose the modules of your specialization in Study Information System. Bachelor’s first year students must choose all modules of major specialization (if there is no other deadline set in the specific curriculum), bachelor’s second year students must choose all the modules necessary for completion of the curriculum. If there are modules to choose in the other study levels, then all their modules must be chosen by the end of the first semester.

Based on your selections, the percentage of completing the curriculum is calculated. The percentage of completing the curriculum will be taken into account when applying for allowances and scholarships. For students who study on tuition weaver, the percentage of completing the curriculum determines whether you need to start to pay the tuition fee.
