Assessment is concerned with the whole learning process, i.e. the achievement of pursued aims regarding knowledge and skills as well as the development of such cooperation and social skills as are expected in study and working life environments. Grades given for study courses are based on exercises, examinations, tests and continuous assessment, which are designed to measure how well students know the subject matter dealt with during the study course.

In order to complete a study course, the student has to participate in the studies as specified in the curriculum and to do practical training and take the examinations as determined by the lecturer at the beginning of the course.

The grades for completed courses are excellent (5), good (4 and 3), satisfactory (2 and 1), and fail (0). Courses may also be assessed on a pass/fail basis, and the teacher must have demonstrable grounds for a failing grade if the student questions the failure.

The same scale is applied in the evaluation of theses as in other studies.

Attempting to achieve a higher grade

The student may try one time to take an exam to raise the approved grade on a course. Course must be taken within one year of the end of the course. Course requirements are valid for one year after the end of the course teaching.

You cannot increase the approved grade of the thesis.

If a student fails a mid-course test or an exam, the student has the right to two more chances to take a replacement exam. If the student fails 3 times, the whole course must be taken again either with another class, or individually at the discretion of the teacher.
