All academic activities (courses, exams, etc) are taught in English.


Duties of the Students

Students must submit a Progress Report - which has to be previously approved by their supervisor - related to the activity carried out during the academic year. The positive assessment of the Progress Report by the Faculty Board allows the enrolment in the next academic year.
