Study plans and Degree options

Study Plan

With the exception of degree programmes in the School of Medicine, all students must present a Study Plan at the beginning of each course year.

To present your Study Plan, you must be enrolled in the current academic year and have received your definitive Student ID number.

To complete your study plan, visit and follow the instructions on the Study Plans page.

Please read the following guidelines carefully and the instructions for online completion of the study plan: remember that, in order for the Study Plan to be correctly submitted, you must click on CONFIRM PLAN when you have finished filling in the details. We recommend that you print and keep a copy of your Study Plan.

Final exam

The undergraduate and Master’s degree programmes end with the final exam, a “viva” (oral presentation and defense) of the research study (thesis) agreed with a teacher who acts as supervisor. This process works in different ways according to the Department concerned – check your department website for more specific information about the thesis.

To be eligible for the final exam, you must have passed all the other exams included as part of your programme, and be up-to-date with all university fees/payments.
