An elective course is a subject from the block of electives, which must be taken within the volume established in the curriculum. Curriculum-based electives are compulsory.
An optional course is a subject chosen freely from the study plan for a given semester and may have no relation to the core course. While choosing an optional course, the student must bear in mind that he or she needs to have passed the prerequisite subjects. Optional courses may be taken from other universities’ accredited curricula.
The volume of the taken optional courses should be not less than the prescribed volume in the curriculum.
Optional courses are included in the tuition fee if declared during the designated semester. In case the student wishes to declare optional courses in addition to the nominal programme during a semester other than the designated one, the price will be credit-point-based.
