4.1 The nominal study plan is a document that establishes the total volume of studies in terms of time and form and divides the studies set forth in the curriculum between semesters. It is recommended that students adhere to the nominal study plan. Students can view the nominal study plan in the MyEBS.
4.2 Students have the right to draw up an individual study plan by declaring semester studies that differ from nominal studies. A student’s tuition fee is based on the subjects declared for a semester and is paid by the same due date as the standard tuition fee. Upon declaring a final thesis or final exam, the student must adhere to the deadline for meeting the graduation requirements set forth in the graduation schedule for the respective semester. Students are not permitted to declare subjects whose face-to-face work is not finished by the deadline for meeting the graduation requirements.
4.3 The Office of Academic Affairs draws up the schedule of studies for each semester on the basis of the nominal study plan. The schedule is announced by the start of the declaration of subjects for the corresponding semester. EBS reserves the right to change single subjects and their volume and temporal order.
4.4 The list of compulsory, elective and optional subjects for each semester is announced to students immediately before the start of the declaration process. Elective and optional subjects are declared before the start of the semester along with compulsory subjects.
4.5 If the number of participants registered for an elective or optional course is below the established minimum, EBS has the right to cancel the course.
4.6 Students have the right to waive the declared subjects within six weeks of the start of the semester in accordance with the terms and conditions for waiving a study service.
4.7 Optional, elective and compulsory subjects can also be chosen from other institutions of higher education. In the case of elective or compulsory subjects, the student must have the approval of the Head of the Office of Academic Affairs. For guest studies, students must register with their study counsellor at the Office of Academic Affairs and the institution of higher education where the studies are going to take place. The record of grades is issued and the result registered by the Office of Academic Affairs. Grading takes place using the grading scale of the receiving institute of higher education. If this grading scale does not correspond to the common scale applicable in Estonia, the result is converted to correspond to the common scale or the grade is transferred using undifferentiated assessment (pass/fail) if the grading systems are not comparable.
4.8 Guest students must follow the rules of the receiving institute of higher education.
