Evaluation and diploma

Evaluation and diploma

In each university of the consortium, students will be evaluated by on-going tests and exams under the responsibility of:

  • K. Andrieux and C. Roques for Paris Descartes University
  • S. Antimisiaris for Patras University
  • C. Caramella and M. Tereni for Pavia University
  • E. Roger and M.C. Venier for Angers University

To pass a study unit/course, students need to obtain at least an E mark of the ECTS system. In case of failing a subject, a re-sit examination will be organized after the final exam.

At the end of each semester, students will have to validate the 30 ECTS according to the modalities defined by the Host Institution.

If a student fails a subject, even after taking a re-sit, he/she shall abandon the NANOMED programme.

Average grade A B C D E

To obtain the diploma from the NANOMED EMJMD students have to validate each of the 4 semesters (Basic training, Advanced training and traineeships).

Students will be allowed to consult their exam paper after addressing a formal request to the Professor in charge of the concerned course. All types of exams (written, oral presentation, individual report, …) will be conserved for one year after the end of the intake at the Host Institution where the exam took place.

During Semester 4, students will complete an traineeship at a private company or at a research laboratory, with which the Consortium has a collaboration partnership agreement. The location and the subject of the traineeship have to be validated by the Host Institution acting as a liaison with the NANOMED consortium for the duration of S4. The traineeship will last 22 to 26 weeks. At the end of this period the student must write-up a report that will constitute his/her Master Thesis and will be submitted to appropriate reviewers. The dissertation must be presented viva voce during the workshop in front of an International jury. Final mark will be delivered by the Validation Committee of the Consortium. In case of failing the dissertation, the student will have the opportunity to:

  • Prepare a new oral presentation before the end of September;
  • Prepare a new version of the report and a new oral presentation that will take place before the end of September;
  • Attend a new traineeship and renew the whole process.

Finally, the diplomas(at least two national Master’s degree) will be delivered according to the decision of the pedagogic committee composed of two representatives of each University of the consortium.
