Methods used and evaluation

The pedagogy implemented in the different modules is adapted to the different learning objectives. Active teaching methods are favoured, and co-modal methods are developed. Group sizes are small, allowing for privileged interaction, both among peers and with professionals and teacher-researchers.

The programme is assessed through two main methods of validation:

  • Module assessment (continuous and final assessment): assessments are carried out throughout the course in the form of individual or group projects and end of semester examinations;
  • The Graduating Project: submission of a dissertation written under the supervision of an  academic tutor.

At the end of the course and after validation of all programme requirements, the certification is awarded to the participants. If certain modules have not been validated and therefore the credits have not been obtained, the student must take resit examinations to catch up on these credits during the periods provided for this purpose.
