Assessment and Validation
Each module is assessed and validated in a different way. Your teachers will inform you of how you should proceed to satisfy their requirements, and as you complete them, they will enter the information into the Faculty data system. You can view your academic record through your MyUnil account.
You can opt to validate their seminars EITHER with a 6-hour written or a 30-minute oral exam, OR with a class validation (e.g. an essay). Students need to enrol for the type of validation they have chosen on Sylviacad by week FOUR.
For oral or written exams, students will present two subjects and a dossier to be agreed on with the instructor(s) of the seminar.
Please note that in Critical Approaches, Research Methodology, and SPEC seminars, you can only take the class validation.
