Examinations and evaluations

All courses and learning activities will be evaluated by the teacher in charge of the component or a jury.

Leaning activities may be evaluated by a written or oral exam, by means of continuous assessment, through an assessed performance *(evaluation artistique) or an assessed piece of written work.
Exams and evaluations mainly happen at the end of each quarter (in January, June and August/September).
The course specifications for each study unit outlines the means by which the learning activities will be assessed. Course specifications are available in the section "courses".
