Assesment and completion

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical classes and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).


To enrol in the second year, students must have completed the obligations in all enrolled subjects and completed 60 credits, and to enrol in the third year they must have completed the obligations of all the first and second year subjects and have completed 108 credits. Students must submit a certificate of completion of practical training prior to the defence of their diploma thesis.
