Undergraduate students who fail to graduate in the call for which they have applied for admission to the final examination must notify both the professor/supervisor and the Student Services Centre of the relevant seat.
Notification to the Student Services Centre should be made by writing via the iCatt Information Request form under Lessons, Examinations and Final Examination - Final Examination.

CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING THE FINAL GRADE, CREDITS AWARDED AND THESIS EVALUATION CRITERIA

The final graduation mark is the weighted average (for the ECTS credits of each course) of the marks obtained in each profit examination. 

The grade 30 cum laude is counted as 31.

The average in thirtieths thus obtained is converted into 110ths

For graduate degree programmes only, the marks for any debts or consolidations are also added.
 

With reference to the credits awarded and the assessment of the final thesis, please refer below to the sheets prepared for each degree or profile.
