Set out below you'll find the assessment system for your particular programme, but, given that there is no standard assessment model for our courses, we'd advise you to check each individual course plan for specific information:
For university qualifications, please note that you have four chances to pass each course (once per semester). If, after four attempts, you have not managed to pass a course, you can still apply for authorization to stay and continue studying at the UOC.
To ensure high standards and quality throughout the assessment process, the university takes measures to ensure the identity of students and the originality of the work they submit. Rigour in the assessment process is critical to maintaining the prestige and quality of UOC programmes.
Continuous assessment entails the carrying out and passing of continuous assessment activities or challenges. To ensure continuous assessment has been properly completed, you'll need to carry out and submit the number of activities established in the corresponding course plan.
The continuous assessment may include curricular internships, which are aimed at putting the theoretical knowledge acquired in the academic training into practice.

There are two types of final assessment tests:
