Graduation: application, deadlines and final dissertation

At the end of their study path, students are admitted to their final exam, consisting in the public presentation of a project to the Graduation Board. 

The Graduation Board may ask you in-depth questions on methods, results and any developments of your work. The Board will assess your performance in determining your final grade. 

If you wish to use slides in support of your presentation, which typically lasts 10-15 mins, please make sure to contact the CLABE tutor.

For guidelines about the final dissertation, please download the PDF in the USEFUL ATTACHMENT section (right side)

In order to be admitted to the graduation session, you must have earned the credits from all of the modules and learning activities except the “final exam” (that is, when you have earned and registered at least 177 credits). You can choose different graduation sessions, according to when you manage to finish your exams: July, September, October, or March. The earlier you graduate, the more bonus points you may be awarded.
