According to the type of course, there are different forms of assessment. Certain courses have traditional oral and/or written assessments (which take place in the examination periods in January, June and August/September), while seminars involve student participation throughout the semester and the assessment of individual work. Further details on the assessment method are given at the beginning of each course.
Course examinations on communication skills are designed to test performance, that is to say practical use of the language in meaningful situations, which demonstrate students’ level of ability.
Teaching activities are assessed in accordance with the rules currently in force at the University (see General Examination Regulations (https://uclouvain.be/en-enseignement-reglements.html)). Students may also find additional information on the particular methods of assessment in the course descriptions.
To obtain a student’s average, the grades awarded for each course unit are weighted by their respective credits.
