Types of training

  • Regular (full-time)
    Part-time (evening)

Means of evaluation

  • Practical mark
    Examination
    Final examination

9. Conditions to take the final exam

  • Final certificate
  • Thesis approved by a reviewer

Admission to the final examination is subject to the obtainment of a final certificate. The final certificate is issued to students having fulfilled all educational requirements specified in the curriculum – except for writing the thesis – and obtained the necessary amount of credits.

10. Components of the final exam

The final exam comprises the defence of the thesis and oral exams specified in the curriculum (with preparation times at least 30 minutes per subject), which have to be taken the same day.

Result of the final examination

The overall result of the final examination is the average of grades obtained for the thesis and the subjects of the oral part of the final exam: F =(Th + S1+S2+…+Sm)/(1+m).
