    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The teaching methodology is geared towards a process centered on the students' skills and oriented towards understanding and conceptual reflection on the themes. Assessment will be continuous, valuing student participation in the learning dynamic.

    Evaluation: According to the university regulations, students can opt for the model of continuous evaluation or evaluation by examination. Continuous valuation will take into account cumulatively: - preparation of a group work (35%)- 25% oral presentation + 10% written summary - provision of a frequency test (50%) and preparation of individual reports (15%). In the event that the student is unable to perform any of the conditions of the continuous evaluation regime, he/she must provide a knowledge test (examination).

    The grade of each of the elements must be greater than or equal to 9,5 points. The appeal exam will consist in a written test (100%), with a minimum grade for approval is 9,5 points.
