Teaching calendar

The teaching calendar is organised into two semesters of lectures and consecutive exams. Generally, the lectures of a course are focused in one semester.
The exams for all teaching include:

  • 3 calls in the winter session (at the end of the first semester)
  • 3 calls in the summer session (at the end of the second semester)
  • 1 call in the autumn session (after the summer break)

N.B. In case of a protracted health emergency, the Department reserves the right to reschedule both the modes and times of delivery of teaching activities, and the number of exams in each session.

Teachings and programmes

Please check the list of active courses to find out about the teaching programmes.

Plan of study

The plan of study is the annual university work project of each student. It is mandatory to complete it at the beginning of each academic year (usually in October).

You can attend classes in the first semester from the beginning (pending completion of your plan of study), but without your annual plan of study you cannot book and take exams for the academic year in which you are enrolled.
If you plan to take a small number of exams, you will only be able to enter a few subjects when you fill in your plan of study: in this way, you will have chosen part-time enrollment for the current year.

During the period of compiling your plan, the Plan of Study function will be enabled in the UniGe online services. 
If you are unable to compile your plan in the dedicated period, you must request that the system be reopened by sending an email to the Economics Student Desk.
