Exam description

Oral examination

Assessment methods

The oral examination is performed by two professors and it is about 30-min long. During the examination, the student answers to questions related to the content of the course while discussing a case-study previously assigned. In this way, the commission is able to evaluate if the learning outcomes have been achieved. If not, the student is asked to study more thoroughly and/or take benefit from further explanations by teachers.

Oral lessons will be delivered in Italian language, but the slides are in English.
