Final examination: modalities

To graduate, you have to sit a final examination designed to verify that you have reached the education objectives set by the Degree Programme.


The final examination consists of writing a dissertation on a subject pertinent to your studies, elaborated in an original way, under the guidance of a supervisor. The dissertation will be discussed publicly during a specific final examination session in front of a dedicated Commission which will assess your performance using your curriculum as a reference. During the dissertation discussion, you may use slides and the dedicated commission may ask you in-depth questions on methods, results and any developments of your work.
