• the linguistic accuracy
• the argumentative, reasoning and problem-solving skills
• the ability to connect systematically the knowledge achieved

Students attending classes and Erasmus students have the possibility to write a short paper on specific topics, upon agreement with the professor. The paper will be discussed during the oral examination and will be part of the final exam.

Students not-attending classes and ERASMUS students are kindly requested to contact the Professor at the beginning of the course, in order to agree on the exam’s program and the parts of reference books to study.

Grades are awarded on a scale from 18 to 30, where 30 is the highest grade and 18 is the lowest grade to pass the exam. In case of an excellent knowledge, a high level of linguistic accuracy and an argumentative, reasoning and problem-solving capacity the candidate may earn the highest grade with “cum laude” honor.
