Assesment and completion:

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).

Progress:

Students may enrol in the next year if by the end of the academic year they have completed all course units prescribed by syllabuses and accumulated at least 45 credits.

Progression:

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

Conditions for obtaining a public document:

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units prescribed by the study programme and subject syllabuses, for a total of 120 credits. Students must write and defend a master's thesis.
