Courses registration and evaluations
Students must register for all programs and courses they want to follow as well as for exams within the deadline set by the faculty via the faculty’s Internet site.
Course evaluations take place during the semester for continuous assessments, reports and seminars. Oral and written examinations take place during the official sessions. (More information)
Warning : if you have to take oral and/or written exams, you must be available to sit the exams during the official session. We do not organize earlier sessions for exchange students (except in case of force majeure duly justified and notified to firstname.lastname@example.org within the first 4 weeks of the course).
Courses at the Master’s level are accessible only to Master level students.

A transcript of the obtained grades will be sent directly to your home university.
