  • Barcelona

In Barcelona, the official units are modules and not courses. The modules include blocs (or courses) which may vary every year according to the offer available. Nonetheless, the thematic content of such blocs is always related to the title of the modules (see Curricula, list of modules). For more information please see the Barcelona CREOLE webpage.

Marking includes: Failed (Suspenso): below 5 over 10; Pass (Aprobado):  5-6/10; Very Good (Notable): 7-8/10 and Excellent (Excelente): 9-10/10

Flexible course organisation:

  • In Vienna, you may select each semester the courses at your convenience (i.e. your present study plans). At the department, we assume that from the type of course and the described contents (to be found in the Course Catalogue), you are able to decide which courses fit best into your personal study trajectory. This, of course, must be in accord with the general CREOLE curriculum respectively the CREOLE curriculum approved by your home university.
  • Attention with seminars: You may decide to drop a seminar you had selected, but this has to be done in the first week after the first meeting. If you drop a seminar later than that, the teacher has to mark you as “Failed.”
  • Exams:

-    For lectures, there are four exam dates: last week of a term, at the beginning of the next term, in the middle of the next term, and last week of the term.

-    All other courses (e.g. seminars): according to the rules explained by the teacher at the beginning of the course.

-    Marking system: 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, 4=D, 5=Failed.
