Personalized Learning Track
A standard learning track (MOT) is the designated learning track of a specific study programme curriculum in terms of its objectives, and the build-up and successiveness of the course units as part of that study programme. The course catalogue specifies the standard learning track for each study programme.
A personalized learning track (GIT) is a learning track that deviates from a standard learning track. It is custom-tailored to suit an individual student.
The student's curriculum can be laid down as a standard or individualised learning track, insofar as the Curriculum Committee agrees to his/her proposed learning track.

GIT within the Bachelor's programme

GIT combining the Bachelor's and Master's programme
GIT combining the linking programme and Master's programme
GIT combining the preparatory programme and Master's programme
An external GIT is a personalized learning track in which you combine an enrolment at another Flemish university or university college with an enrolment at Ghent University for a successive programme. More information on the enrolment procedure (Dutch).
How the programme you enrolled for is structured and more information on the course units is available in the course catalogue.
Step 1: Check if you meet the requirments to enrol for a GIT
If you have questions on GIT requirements, contact your learning track counsellor.
Step 2: Check if you need to retake the practical work of the course units for which you have failed
Contact the lecturer in charge or check Minerva.
Step 3: Make a personal course schedule containing the remaining courses from a study year
Step 4: Check which course units from a higher study year you can take up
- course schedule and examination schedule
Avoid overlapping classes. Try to ensure that your learning track is reasonably balanced between the two semesters.
It may happen that your exams are planned relatively close to each other, due to the fact that you combine course units from more than one study year. Always give priority to the exams of the course units in the lowest study year !
Within a personalized learning track, one is not always free to choose course units. Successiveness needs to be respected. Successiveness is the sequence in which course units need to be taken, in due consideration of the required initial competences for each course unit. The initial competences for each course unit are described in the course specifications (course catalogue).
