All AU students are enrolled under specific academic regulations covering the degree programme to which they have been admitted.
Your academic regulations are important because they tell you what you need to learn each semester and how this will be done – as well as describing the rules applying to your degree programme. You are responsible for keeping up to date with the rules with which you need to comply.
Your academic regulations are the legal foundation of your degree programme. Your academic regulations contain:
Academic regulations are drawn up by teachers and students in degree programme boards and boards of studies, and are subject to the approval of the dean.
The framework for degree programmes and academic regulations is defined in a range of ministerial orders.
You can do this by logging onto mitstudie.au.dk and clicking on ‘My academic regulations’, which you will find under your timetable.
No. The discontinuation of your academic regulations does not mean that you will lose your place.
If your academic regulations are discontinued, you will be transferred to a new version and can continue your studies under these regulations instead. Your maximum degree completion time defines the deadline for completing your degree programme. The discontinuation of your academic regulations does not affect your maximum degree completion time.
If you are transferred to new academic regulations, the board of studies will assess the extent to which you can transfer credit for the courses which you have passed under your old regulations to the new regulations.
The section of your new academic regulations entitled “Rules regarding credit transfer” contains guidelines for transferring credit from the old regulations to the new regulations.
If there is a big difference in the academic content of the new and old regulations, it might not be possible to transfer all the courses or ECTS credits that you have passed to the new regulations. So you might have to pass additional courses and gain additional ECTS credits in order to complete your degree programme.
It might not be possible to transfer all the courses and/or ECTS credits that you have passed under the old regulations to the new regulations because the academic content or number of ECTS credits of these courses has been changed significantly in the new regulations.
If you need to take one or more new courses as a result of transferring to a more recent academic regulations, your maximum degree completion time will be extended to enable you to attend classes and take exams in the new course(s).
As a general rule, this extension will allow you to have three examination attempts in the new course, but, in cases where the re-examination is only offered once a year, you will only be able to have two examination attempts. In such cases, if you need a third examination attempt, you can apply to take a re-examination that has been created especially.
No. When academic regulations are discontinued, all the students enrolled under them are affected. You will also be transferred even if you are (or have been) on parental leave or sick leave, or if other exceptional circumstances apply which prevent you from completing your final exams before your academic regulations cease to be valid. This applies even if you have previously been given dispensation to follow an individual timetable.
If you have previously been given dispensation to follow an individual timetable, you should contact a student counsellor for guidance, because you may need to draw up a new study plan.
Although certain courses under the academic regulations under which you are enrolled are no longer taught, it may still be possible to take the course exams. It will appear from the phase-out plan in your academic regulations.
Whether you will be able to take the course exams depends on whether you have previously participated in the classes and whether you have previously taken any course exams. Your possibilities depend on which of the three following categories you belong to:
You can also request to be transferred to a new version of the academic regulations and apply for credit transfer for the courses that you have passed under your current academic regulations. This way, you participate in the classes and take the exam under the new academic regulations.
In the search module at the top of the page you will find only the current academic regulations. If you need an older version, please contact Study Center Arts
