Access to further studies

Opportunities for further study are a Master's degree as well as a Master of Science degree, which give validity to more complex construction specialist positions.

Examination regulations, assessment and grading

Course assessment criteria are specified in the course implementation plan. The teacher in charge of the course will be responsible for the assessment. At the beginning of the course, students will be informed on the assessment principles which must be based on the course objectives.

Assessment applies to the students who have registered and been accepted on the course. If the course consists of several components, the teacher may point this out in the assessment principles contained in the implementation plan.

Different components of a course may be assessed individually.
The assessment scale is as follows: 5 excellent 4 very good 3 good 2 very satisfactory 1 satisfactory 0 fail H pass

The grade of an approved course cannot be upgraded in a re-sit. Students that fail a course may re-sit the exam twice on specified dates.

Students will be provided with feedback and assessment within four weeks of their course performance and in any case well before the next possible retake. The teacher in charge of the course will ensure that the course grades are entered in the study credit register after the assessments have been made public. Grades for successfully completed courses that have been entered in the study credit register cannot be erased. The course coordinator or teacher files the documents used as the basis for student assessment for six months, counting from the publication of the assessment.
