Requirements for passing the Master’s cycle
The Master’s cycle is made of several blocks and groups. Each block or group weighs a given number of ECTS credits. Each block or group contains one or several subjects. Each subject weighs a given number of ECTS credits. The complete Master’s cycle weighs 60 or 90 ECTS credits, depending on the study plan. In the case of a 60-ECTS-credit cycle, registering for a minor or specialization brings the total to 90 ECTS credits.
A block is passed (and thus all the credits associated with the block are acquired) when all the subjects it contains have been examined at least once and the weighted average of the block is 4,00 or above.
A group is passed when enough subjects in the group are passed (final grade 4,00 or above) to reach the number of credits associated with the group. Although an average is calculated, it has no bearing on the passing of the group.
Failed subjects (final grade below 4,00) in a failed block or group may only be repeated once, in the academic year following the failed exam. Passed subjects (final grade 4,00 or above) and failed subjects in a passed block or group may not be repeated.
To pass a 60-credit Master’s cycle, a student must have acquired all the required credits within four semesters of the admission to the Master’s cycle. To pass a 90-credit Master’s cycle, a student must have acquired all the required credits within six semesters of the admission to the Master’s cycle.
Requirements for passing the Master’s project
The Master’s project lasts one semester and weighs 30 ECTS credits. It must be successfully completed within two semesters of the admission to the Master’s project (upon successful completion of the Master’s cycle at the latest). In the case of a second attempt at the Master’s project, the chosen topic must be different from that of the first attempt.
