Evaluation

The evaluation methods comply with the regulations concerning studies and exams. More detailed explanation of the modalities specific to each learning unit are available on their description sheets under the heading “Learning outcomes evaluation method”.

Written and oral exams aim to measure the level of acquisition and grasp of concepts, theories, basic data and know-how in the different disciplines concerned.
Exercises, seminars and internships (internal or external to UCLouvain) are subject to continuous assessment.
At the end of the first bloc, an evaluation will assess the two preliminary stages of the dissertation (heuristic and methodological approaches to an academic subject). At the end of the level, the dissertation is marked by the supervisor and two readers.

Courses are evaluated according to current university regulations (see General Examination Regulations). Students may find further information on specific evaluation methods in the course descriptions. 

To obtain a student’s average, the grades awarded for each course unit are weighted by their respective credits.
