During a review of study plans, the course B3B38SME can be substituted for the course BE5B38SME.

It is not possible to register for the course BE5B38SME if the student is concurrently registered for or has already completed the course B3B38SME (mutually exclusive courses).

In order to register for the course BE5B38SME, the student must have registered for the required number of courses in the group BEZBM no later than in the same semester.

The requirement for course BE5B38SME can be fulfilled by substitution with the course B3B38SME.

It is not possible to register for the course BE5B38SME if the student is concurrently registered for or has previously completed the course B3B38SME (mutually exclusive courses).
