In this paper we present a review of matching algorithms that are used for matching students with elective courses at universities. This is an example of a market where price mechanism cannot be used to determine the equilibrium allocation. In the Random Serial Dictatorship students select courses based on their position in a random queue. This mechanism is not ex post Pareto-efficient and its drawback is overcome in the Probabilistic Serial Assignment, although this mechanism is not strategy-proof. In the auction mechanism, students’ bids for courses do not represent their true preferences, since bids depend on their beliefs about the popularity of courses. The efficient allocation is obtained when Deferred Acceptance Algorithm is used - where the priority of students is determined based on their bids. Harvard draft mechanism is based on changing the order of students in the random queue from one round to another and this mechanism is not strategy-proof; however, it is, by all means, better for students than Random Serial Dictatorship. The Wharton Business School mechanism is based on the calculation of approximate competitive equilibrium.

understanding and recognition of diseases. It can provide guidance for disease diagnosis and confirmation of treatment measures, which is conducive to the clinical triage division of nursing students. In addition to the basic skills that are required during clinical practice, modern nurses should also possess a certain degree of general knowledge in psychological care and the concept of humanistic care. These humanities courses are not listed as mandatory courses but are elective courses in Chinese institutes of higher education. The current curriculum may produce students

educational, economic, political, linguistic, and cultural factors. A survey of medical school accreditation systems in different ASEAN countries would be a basic step towards such a liberalization.

, as are courses involving newly emerging “essential skills,” and elective courses related to areas of specialized interest: criminal, juvenile, environmental, or civil rights law. Of the typical eight to nine courses taken during the third year of law school, three could be follow-up courses in one of those separate areas of common practice explored in the second year, and the rest of the third year should consist of practical experience in an area of actual prospective practice. Hence, for the final year—and particularly the final semester—law schools would offer
