How to plan a specialisation in the PlanApp?

You can use the Osiris PlanApp to plan your individual study programme and to request approval for your electives. This includes planning a specialisation, which can be done via Plan Later (A), Curriculum (B) and via the Course Catalogue (C). Note that you first need to enrol in a specialisation via Osiris Student before you can plan a specialisation in the PlanApp.

BE AWARE to always save your plan in between changes and before you close the PlanApp. Additionally, to make your plan definite, you need to request approval for your electives. For information on how to request approval for your electives, see the manual How to request approval for electives?

NOTE: In case of following a double specialisation, upon graduation please check on your Study Progress Overview whether the requirements of both specialisations are fulfilled. For more information about the Study Progress Overview have a look at the manual How to read the study progress overview?
