Students are advised against plagiarism and copying. Any detected and proved case of plagiarism or copying will automatically be marked as a “0” (zero).

The dates of Skills Tests and Seminars will be announced in due time.

Students following the continuous assessment may only miss 3 tests or assessed activities with no need of justification, except January and May/June/July exams where only a medical or work justification will be needed and accepted. Under no circumstances can any of the oral tests, skills tests, tests and seminars be taken on a different date.

A maximum of 3 assessed activities can be excused, including those with necessarily a justification (Term and annual exams) and those which do not require one (Skills Tests, Seminars and Orals).

At the beginning of the course students will be provided with some further guidelines on the subject.
