A study contract is an overview of your study programme - in other words, it is a complete list of the courses you are planning to follow. It must be composed individually and under guidance, and it must be approved by the head of degree programme. The contract is thus an academic approval of your specific study programme constituting a degree within your field.
When the contract has been approved by the head of degree programme, it is mandatory, and you must therefore only register for the courses that are included in the contract. The contract, and hence the courses in your programme, can be changed, but the changes must be approved by your head of degree programme, before you register for courses.
Remember that you must update and have your contract reapproved every time you make changes to your study programme.
You cannot finish your study programme without an updated and approved contract.

NB: The fact that courses are approved in your study contract does not mean that you are automatically registered for them - you must register for courses at mitstuide.au.dk, when the course registration is open.
When using the generator, you must remember to identify the courses for which you have received a credit transfer. In addition, you must indicate which of the lacking compulsory courses, you will replace with credits from outside your faculty.
