Terms of Study

Class attendance in course units is compulsory. Students who are absent for more than 1/3 of the contact hours in a course unit will fail it and must attend it the next time it is offered.

Course units are assessed through written and/or oral examinations and/or assignments. For a course unit to be examined through an oral examination and/or assignment only it requires approval by the Special Interdepartmental Committee.

The final mark of each course unit is determined by its instructor, and may include individual and/or team assignments.

Students that fail in more than two course units per semester are considered to have failed overall and are required to leave the Program.

The submission deadline for the MSc Theses is September 30th of the second academic year following the initial registration.
