Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

- Evaluation of the five written tests (max 40 points).

Exam prerequisites:

The minimal total score of 15 points gained out of the five written tests.

Language of instruction

Work placements

Aims

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

- The knowledge of students is tested at exercises; at five written tests for 8 points each, and at the final exam for 60 points.
- If a student can substantiate serious reasons for an absence from an exercise, (s)he can either attend the exercise with a different group (please inform the teacher about that).
- Passing boundary for ECTS assessment: 50 points.
