Exam description

oral examination

Assessment methods

Oral examination. It is always conducted by two faculty members (or in limited cases by a tenured professor and a fellow with at least 5 years of postgraduate research experience) and has a duration of at least 30 minutes. With these modes, because at least one of the two teachers has many years of experience of examinations in the discipline, the commission is able to verify with high accuracy if  the educational objectives of teaching are achieved. When these are not met, the student is invited to deepen the study and to use further explanation by the lecturer.
