A new academic year has begun and, if you are a freshman, you are taking your first steps in UniBg. Don't be in a hurry to understand everything right away, because it takes time to gain familiarity with all the aspects of your university career.
To help you in these early stages of adjustment, here is some information that may be useful to help you get your first guidance.
On your Department's website, under Study > Teaching calendar and appeals, you will always find an up-to-date timetable for your academic year:
Calendar of lesson and examination periods
Annual calendar of exam sessions
You can check the lesson timetable, classroom and exam location on the logistics platform.
On the website of your three-year bachelor's degree program or five-year master's degree program, under the section The course, you will find the Study Plan, i.e. the organisation of the courses planned for each year and the corresponding examinations you will have to take.
Every year, in the October-November period, you will have to fill in your study plan online (using your desk profile), except in cases where paper submission is required.
Also on the degree program website you will find, in the Study section, the entry Active teachings, by year and related to your Study plan.
Click on the course and you will find all useful information:
professor in charge
university learning credits (CFU)
teaching period (first or second semester)
course text books
online materials (through elearning-moodle platform)
Getting in touch with professors is easy:
Also under the entry Active teachings, by clicking on the name of the professor, you will find his or her e-mail address, reception hours and all useful contact information.
Among the services at your disposal you will find:

To better manage your university career, you should check the information published on the website:
for teaching information, consult your Department website and your degree program website.
For administrative information, you have at your disposal:

Right to Study, for scholarships, grants and fees

Every year students are asked to provide their anonymous opinion on the quality of the courses attended (ROS: Student Opinion Survey) expressing themselves on several aspects: from the availability of teaching material to the clarity of the professor’s exposition.
These opinions - collected through the Student Desk - are essential to consolidate good practices and suggest ways of improving educational programs.
UniBg participates in the GoodPractice project to compare itself with other universities at national level in terms of effectiveness and efficiency of all the Context Services (Secretariats, Libraries, Orientation, Equipments,...).
The completion of the survey, which takes place around June every year, helps the University and its offices to provide a level of service suitable for students’ needs.
