If you follow the prescribed course of study, your electives, corresponding to 30 ECTS, are placed in the 5th semester.
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.
If you are studying BSc in Economics and Business Administration and wish to apply and meet the admission requirements for admission to the Master's degree programme in Economics and Management, you must take the following courses (30 ECTS in total) during your bachelor's degree programme:
1. Choose 1 of the following courses:
2. Choose 2 of the following courses:
Please be aware that the courses offered by Economics and Management are based on academic prerequisites that you, as student at Economics and Business Administration, do not necessarily possess. This means that you must carefully consider your choice of courses before registering as you cannot deregister or exchange your electives after the registration deadlines.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to guarantee that there will be no overlap in the teaching (timetables) on these courses.
If you wish to sign up for one or more of the abovementioned courses, please send an email, in the registration period, from your student mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with name, student number and the course(s) you wish to be signed up for.
Step-by-step guide to registration
If the number of registrations for a course exceeds the number of available places on that course, the places will be allocated by drawing lots.
If you are not granted a place on one or more of your desired courses, you must register anew in the second registration period.
If you initially registered for three courses but are now only able to see two courses in your overview of registrations, you were not allocated a place on all your desired courses in the first round of registration. This means that you will be able to register for a third course in the second registration period.
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:
· Admission as a visiting student at other study programmes/educational institutions
Should this be the case, you must contact email@example.com
Dispensation to cancel registration
If none of the above two reasons for cancellation apply to you, the board of studies can grant you permission to withdraw from or change elective courses. Up to one week into the semester, it is possible to apply for a change of elective subject without the need for documentation of unusual circumstances (This does not apply to courses at Summer University). It is a prerequisite for changing electives that the elective you want to change to, is placed in the same semester as the elective you want to change from. Later than one week inside the semester the board of studies can only grant permission to withdraw if exceptional circumstances exist and are deemed to impact your ability to complete the course. You apply for dispensation via mitstudie.au.dk.
As a student on the top-up programme, your courses are organised in a different order compared to students on the regular programme for the BSc in Economics and Business Administration. This means that for students enrolled from summer 2020 onwards, the third semester will be comprised of both obligatory courses and 10 ECTS electives. You are free to choose among the electives offered for the usual BSc 5th semester, but you should be aware that there may be timetable and/or exam clashes between the obligatory courses and the electives.
Before you register, it is therefore important that you check the following:
Please also note that registrations are binding.
