Information on compulsory, compulsory optional and optional courses. Course requirements and options for retaking the course.

Compulsory Courses

Their successful completion is a prerequisite for the successful completion of one part of the study program or the entire study program. A compulsory course enrolled in the given academic year yet completed unsuccessfully can be re-enrolled during the study once again in the following academic year. If such a course (e.g. Studio) is a continuation of another course in the following semester, the student cannot continue in his/her study in a standard way and is firstly obliged to complete the retaken course i.e. the length of student’s studies shall be exceeded and studies shall be paid for. After the second unsuccessful attempt to complete the compulsory course, the student shall be excluded from the study due to failure.

Compulsory Optional Courses

The successful completion of a designated number of the compulsory optional courses chosen by a student in the structure determined by the study program is a prerequisite for the successful completion of one part of the study program or the entire study program. A compulsory optional course enrolled yet completed unsuccessfully, can be re-enrolled one more time or instead of it a student can choose another course from the list of compulsory optional courses. After the second unsuccessful attempt to complete the compulsory optional course, the student shall be excluded from the study.

Optional Courses

Optional courses are courses which a student can enroll in to complete his /her studies and to earn a sufficient number of credits in the related part of the study. An optional course enrolled yet completed unsuccessfully, can be re-enrolled one more time or instead of it a student can choose another course from the offer of optional courses. If a student has earned a sufficient number of credits from compulsory and compulsory optional courses, he /she does not have to enroll in any other course.
