If you follow the prescribed course of study, your electives, corresponding to 30 ECTS, are placed in the 3rd semester. According to your academic regulations there may be special rules concerning your electives.
Due to the various types of electives, this means that you can choose between the following options:
Pre-approval and credit transfer
If you wish to attend courses outside your programme/university you must apply for a pre-approval well in advance. In the following link you can find information about applying for pre-approval of courses from other studies.
Before you register for any courses, please check whether the classes or exam dates for the courses in question overlap. You can do this through the course clusters or by manually checking for any overlapping classes or exams in the timetables.
The timetables and exam schedules have been configured to ensure that no classes and/or exams overlap within the course clusters, but it is possible to encounter overlapping classes and/or exams between courses from different course clusters.
You are free to select courses from the course cluster that best suits your study programme.
Elective courses from different course clusters:
If you want to register for courses from different course clusters, please be highly aware that you risk having classes or exams that overlap. Before you register for courses from different course clusters, please check for:
If you have to attend a compulsory course along with your elective course, you also have to remember to check for any overlaps between the compulsory course and the elective course. You can also check compulsory courses in timetable.au.dk
After the deadline for registration, there may unfortunately still be changes to the timetable that will cause an overlap of teaching and/or exams.
Please be aware that your registration is binding.
For spring 2022 courses are not divided into specific course clusters. This means that students must check themselves if there is any overlap between the classes or exam dates for the courses in question.
Step-by-step guide to registration
All students who have been registered for their selected courses are bound by their choice. This means that you will not be able to cancel or change your registration for elective courses once the deadline for registration has expired, and the elective course is a binding part of your study programme.
If you are registered for a course, you can only withdraw from this registration if instead, the semester in question are to be used for:
· Project placement (internship)
· Admission as a visiting student at other study programmes/educational institutions
Dispensation to cancel registration
If none of the above reasons for cancellation apply to you, the board of studies can grant you permission to withdraw from or change elective courses, but only if exceptional circumstances exist and are deemed to impact your ability to complete the course. You apply for dispensation via mitstudie.au.dk/en.
