vary from class to class. Assessment may consist of a 100% exam or a division of marks between assessments
and mid-term(s)/final examination. Erasmus students are assessed in the same way as all other students on the
same course. This means that you must sit examinations and complete the tasks set by the academic department
offering the course. If you do not, you fail. Regular and punctual class attendance is also compulsory and if you do
not attend the classes as stated by the lecturer, you receive a failing grade due to abscence.
