We present the results of modelling the polarization resulting from the planetary transits and stellar spots in the system Corot-2 using the Monte Carlo method. The planetary transit was estimated to produce a polarization maximum at the limb of ∼5×10 −6 , adopting solar center-to-limb polarization. Assuming different parameters of the spots, we evaluated the flux and polarization changes due to the stellar activity.
