Examination Methods

Continuous assessment

Students attending the course will present two subjects in the course of the semester, and, at the end of the semester, present one article from the Encyclopédie. The presentation will show how lexicographical practice and linguistic usage has evolved. Special attention will be given to the way language has been managed so as to facilitate scientific thought, both in the emergence of specific terminologies and the use of certain syntactic structures to express abstraction.

For student who do not attend lectures

A work schedule will be sent with homework to be sent back at regular intervals. Student who cannot attend lectures are invited to contact the lecturer as soon as possible. The oral exam will be the presentation and defence of the portfolio of work carried out over the semester.

*******************

Contrôle continu
L’étudiant qui suivra les cours fera deux exposés pendant le semestre. En outre, il présentera en fin de semestre un article tiré de l’Encyclopédie. Cette présentation mettra en lumière l’évolution des pratiques lexicographiques aussi bien que celle de la langue. Une attention particulière sera portée aux évolutions de la langue propres à faciliter la pensée scientifique, tant sous la forme de l’élaboration des terminologies que sous celle de l’emploi de certaines constructions syntaxiques propres à exprimer l’abstraction.

Pour les étudiants qui n’assistent pas aux cours

Un programme de travaux à réaliser sera adressé à chaque étudiant non assidu. Prière de se mettre en relation le plus rapidement possible avec l’enseignant. Celui-ci comporte des devoirs à rendre à intervalles réguliers. L’examen oral prendra la forme d’une présentation et de la défense du portefeuille de travaux réalisés au cours du semestre.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
