Change electives - You can use the PlanApp to add or change coherent elective packages, separate electives and a USE learning trajectory in OSIRIS. You can do this at any point during your studies. If you are not sure whether your personal examination program will meet the requirements, you may always request the Examination Committee AP to assess it for you earlier. When you have obtained 90 credits or more you should submit your examination program to the Examination Committee AP for approval. After it has been approved by the Examination Committee AP, your personal examination program will be “frozen” in OSIRIS: you will still be able to change the planning of your courses, but you will no longer be able to change the composition of the examination program. If you should decide to reconsider the choices you have previously made, you will have to submit the program to the Examination Committee AP once again.
