Verification and assessment of knowledge is designed in a way, which enables students to get continuous and quality feedback on their progress and achievement of competences/objectives. The study programme requires students ongoing work, therefore the assessment of knowledge is more diagnostic, formative and summative. The verification and assessment process is carried out regularly during and after the completion of individual courses. On the elements of the verification and evaluation criteria, the students are informed orally at the beginning of the programme and in writing with the syllabus for each course. The assessment takes into account the ECTS grading scale.
Students complete the part of the study programme, when they successfully complete all with the study programme intended obligations in the amount of 35 ECTS, for which they are given a certificate (according to the Article 32a of the Higher Education Act - last indent), which is a public document.
