Depending on the nature of the course and the teaching methods, students may be assessed in different ways. Some courses will involve traditional oral and/or written assessments (held during one of the three exam sessions, in January, June and August/September), while the evaluation of seminars will involve more substantial student participation as well as assessment of individual course work. Assessment methods will be explained at the beginning of each course.
Some subjects, focusing on the development of research and critical skills, will require students to give presentations and take part in debates at certain times during the year (continuous assessment).
To obtain a student’s average, the grades awarded for each course unit are weighted by the number of credits allocated to each unit.
