Students are evaluated in many different ways throughout their course:

Exams are specific to the teaching cycle:thereafter, students are evaluated mainly through case studies, role-plays and project presentations.

Each placement requires a report to be written demonstrating that the relevant skills have been acquired.

In the 5th year, students submit an End of Studies Thesis (EST) and defend it before a jury composed of two professors. The validation of the EST is one of the requirements for the diploma.

Recognise / Know: quizzes, pairing exercises, etc.
