Study plan

Some study programmes help you monitor your own academic progress by assisting you in drawing up a study plan at the end of your first year.

The study plan is intended to help you remain focused and motivated for the rest of your programme. You will draw up a study plan for your second and third years at the end of your first and second year respectively.

Study Plan


All master students are required to make an individual study plan before starting the MSc programme. This study plan should be discussed with the study adviser and the following form should be filled out and e-mailed to the study adviser. 

Instructions filling the study plan template:

  • Study plan form 
  • Include the correct master specialisation 
  • Fill in the form with the courses you plan to take for the entire master programme
  • Indicate the semester that you will be following the course as e.g., F19 (for Fall 2019), S20 (for Spring 2020).
  • Check your plan against the requirements outlined in Course and Exam Regulations, Appendices of the current academic year (scroll down the page for the English version).
  • Add extra lines if you need to add “extra curricular” courses 
  • Save the file as Lastname, Initial20.docx (if 2020 is your first year in the program) in word format and email it to the study advisor.
