Depending on the different kinds of instruction and courses, assessment may take different forms. Certain courses have traditional oral and/or written examinations (which are held during one of the three examination periods in January, June or August/September), whereas assessment of seminars entails much greater involvement from the student and the assessment of individual work. The form of assessment will be made clear at the beginning of each course.
Certain subjects, centred on the development of research skills and the capacity for personal criticism, involve presentations and discussions spread over the academic year (continuous assessment).
Students are required to write their Master’s dissertation in one of the two languages registered on their programme and to attach a summary in French.
Course activities are assessed according to the regulations in force at the University (see General examination regulations). Students may also find additional information on the way in which particular courses are assessed in the relevant syllabus.
To obtain a student’s average, the grades awarded for each course unit are weighted by their respective credits
