Evaluation Methodology
Theoretical-practical classes are compulsory and those who exceed the number of absences allowed by the academic rules will be excluded from continuous assessment.
Continuous assessment includes written assignments throughout the semester or a final written assignment delivered during the examination periods.
Those with an average mark equal to or higher than 10/20 will be exempt from exams. The work to be delivered at exam time is a study based on the student's own results (obtained in another course) or provided by the teacher. Alternatively, it can consist of a critical assessment of the analytical part of a publicly available internship report or a dissertation.
