Discipline

Students will be abided by the rules and regulations stipulated by the Erasmus Joint Master Degrees Program in the Neurasmus Student Agreement at the time of joint enrolment. The Neurasmus Student Agreement is a mandatory contract required by the EACEA that has to be signed by the enrolled student and the Program coordinator at the start of the Program. Students will have to attend courses assiduously and follow Personal Training Plan including the mandatory mobility inherent to the program, with the objective of successfully passing examinations and completing a Master thesis.

Examination regulations

UBS4All students must complete two academic years of theoretical and practical education, corresponding to 120 ECTS and divided in 4 semesters of 30 ECTS each. As the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is designed to facilitate the mutual acceptance of courses successfully completed at foreign institutions of higher learning, all courses offered in Neurasmus will be assigned an appropriate number of credits. Each module will be graded in accordance with the ECTS grading scale in addition to the national grading scale.

All courses will be held in English, unless otherwise specified. The thesis dissertation should be written and defended in English. A summary of the dissertation should be provided in the other national languages, in case local regulations require it. Students will receive help for the necessary translations by the relevant tutors.

The Master examinations will be carried out according to the rules of local institutions . The Neurasmus Examination Board will be provided by the Neurasmus Board of Education.

Performance in an examination will be declared automatically unsatisfactory (“Fail”):

  • if a candidate does not appear for an examination without a reasonable explanation,
  • if she/he withdraws from an examination without such a reason after it has begun or,
  • if she/he fails to hand in written work within the established time limit,
  • if she/he attempts to influence her/his performance in any examination through deception or the use of disallowed means or if she/he attempts to interfere with the normal course of the examination.

In the case of illness , a candidate must present an official medical attestation issued by a practicing physician. If the reason(s) given are accepted, a new date for an examination will be set.

Diploma

Following the successful completion the 2-year program, students are awarded a multiple diploma i.e. the original diploma of at least two universities where the student has completed his/her studies, provided the mobility scheme meets local requirements for the degree delivery.

Any mobility that does not match the min. local requirements set by a partner institution for its full-degree delivery is considered as a simple mobility, i.e. non-diploma awarding mobility. The partner institution will issue a mobility certificate.
