Foreign Language Requirements

All students, in their first year of studies, are obliged to attend the lessons 'Foreign Language' I & II for three hours per week. Similarly, in the second year, students are obliged to attend the modules 'Foreign Language and Terminology' I & II for another three hours per week.
Students who have an adequate knowledge of the foreign language can be exempted from the obligation to attend classes in the 1st year. This exemption is obtained upon successful completion of an examination on the syllabus of the course which would be taught, and which is taken at the beginning of each academic year.
The marks in the abovementioned courses appear in the student's transcript without affecting the status of the student in that academic year, or his final degree grade.
