All courses are compulsory to full-time students.
Especially for the academic year 2020-2021 we inform all students that due to the special conditions imposed by the pandemic of COVID-19 will be conducted as scheduled in situ but also online -at least for the first semester- for all those who will not be able to travel. A simultaneous elearning mode is in place for those who will participate online.
Given the dense program curriculum, these courses are classified between graded and non-graded courses.
Graded courses aim at evaluating students on core skills that are instrumental to the labor market. For each graded course students are exposed to a double system of evaluation: a short exam at the end of each course and a take-home exam.
Non-graded courses and activities provide soft skills and enriched contents for the students to be competent in different areas of IEL.
Students must also complete a Final Research Paper to be supervised and graded by a qualified scholar or a professional in the field.
