Teaching methods
Seminars in full-time study; compulsory seminar participation is 75%.
Assessment methods
The extent of obligatory participation in lessons has been stipulated as follows: 75% applies to full-time students.
In case of insufficient attendance between 75-40%, the assessment “-“ will be entered into the IS and the person concerned automatically loses one attempt to sit the test. The seminar attendance less than 40 % means that the student didn't meet the minimum required study obligations and he/she will be assessed as failed “---". In such a case the student will have to transfer the subject into the following term/academic year, and following the purchase of the necessary credits he/she will have again three attempts to pass the subject (to write the test).
The students with the approved Individual Study Plan (ISP) are obliged to get in touch with their lecturer in three weeks’ time at the very latest since the beginning of the term in order to agree alternative ways to fulfil their study obligations due to optional attendance. In case the student verifiably neglects this obligation, he/she will be assessed as failed and the code of “---“ will be entered into the IS. The students who were given the status of ISP on the course of the running term are obliged to contact their assigned lecturer in 14 days at the very latest.

Reaching the result of minimum 60 points out of 100 points (maximum) is the precondition to sit for the oral part. The student is entitled to one regular attempt and he/she can do two resits to pass the written part of the final examination.
Note: The students who will be convicted of fundamental violation of the Study and Examination Code while writing the Credit Test (namely the forbidden use of mobile phones, spy pen cameras etc.) will automatically get the assessment “---“ (i.e. failed).
Student draws one of the twenty oral topics and fulfils given commuinication tasks.The student is entitled to one regular attempt and he/she can do two resits to pass the oral part of the final examination.
