Attendance on practices and lectures, replacement in case of missed sessions:


Attendance on practices and lectures is mandatory.

No more than a 25% of the lectures and 25% of the practices are allowed to be missed. In case of approved absence, there is a possibility for  for replacement.


Consequences of absence from sessions and exams:

Topics dates and number of midterms (oral reports, written tests), possibilities to replace and repeat them:

Written tests are carried out three-times in the semester, satisfactory grades can be given in case of a result of 50% or above. In case of an unsuccessful test, there are two possibilities to repeat. The time and topic for the demonstrations is announced at the start of the semester.

Students who accomplish none of the demonstrations, are provided one opportunity for correction during the last week of the semester, held by a board of lead lecturers.


Requirements of an accepted semester (signature of the lecturer), numbers and types of tasks for students:

 At the end of the semester, students get practical grade. Students get their practical grade from the valuation of their theoretical knowledge and their skills during the practical work (in II. semester).

Grading of courses:

Colloquium (I. semester): Verbal explanation of one essay from a greater topic (topic is drawn), followed by 3 quiz questions (topic is drawn) answered instantly


Mods (II. semester): Verbal explanation of two essay of a greater topic (topic is drawn), followed by 5 quiz questions (topic is drawn) answered instantly

Failing any of parts of the exam will result in failure of the whole exam.


Type of exam: Colloquium: material of the first semester, Mods: material of the second semester

Requirements for Exam:

Colloquium (I.semester): Oral exam from the first semester’s subject
