Students are required to prepare a written report developing a topic of their choice from those covered in class. This report must be sent to the course lecturer at least 10 days before the oral examination. The written report will be reviewed by the course lecturers and the oral examination will consist of a presentation and discussion of this report.
Students will be assessed on the basis of the written report they submit to the course lecturer before taking the oral examination. The oral test will consist of a presentation by the student of this written paper, during which the student must show that he/she has acquired sufficient mastery of the subject matter and must be able to hold a discussion with the lecturer.
Working students and students with a certified DSA, disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the lecturer at the beginning of the course in order to agree on teaching and examination methods that, while respecting the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods.
