Module description

How to sign up for the course

The schedule of practical classes corresponding to the lecture stream you have chosen will be highlighted automatically.

For first- and second-year students: every odd or even week (depending on your choice) you will have 2 academic hours of lectures and 4 academic hours of practical classes.

For third year students: you need to choose 2 out of 16 disciplines.

Confirm your choice with the corresponding key – and the system will send us your application. The number of places on the streams is limited! If a convenient time is not available, it means that it has already been completely booked, and you will have to choose another one.
