Depending on the nature of the course and the teaching methods, the evaluation will take different forms. Some courses will involve oral and/or written evaluations (held during one of the three exam sessions: January – June – August/September), whilst the evaluation of seminars will involve more substantial student participation as well as assessment of individual course work. Evaluation methods will be explained at the beginning of each course.

Those exams relating to courses on communication skills will evaluate the student's level, i.e. the practical use of the language in relevant situations.

Teaching methods are evaluated in accordance with the current University regulations (see General regulations concerning examinations ). Students may also find additional information regarding the evaluation of courses in the course description.
