    and results of their bachelor thesis (PowerPoint presentation is

    recommended) to the examination board (max. 10 minutes)

  • after the student has presented the thesis, the

    consultant announces his/her assessment of the thesis

  • followingly, also the opponent announces his/her

    assessment of the thesis

  • if the consultant or the opponent are not present at

    the presentation, their reviews will be read and their assessment

    announced

  • thesis-related open, public duscussion

  • public discussion is followed by

    "non-public" discussion o­n the final assessment and the

    resulting grade is voted (excellent - very good - good - failed)


NOTE: discussion

the consultant's and opponent's reviews must be available 3 days prior the term

of the theoretical components. Students can claim the reviews at the

Physiotherapy Dept., secretary's office


  • After

    the "non-public" discussion has finished, the examination board

    announces the final assessment of the bachelor thesis to the student

    concerned

Students who go through the presentation procedure successfully and pass

this component of the final examination, are invited to continue with the

theoretical examination immediately after the presentation. Students who fail

the presentation and receive negative assessment are not allowed to continue

neither with the theoretical examination, nor the practical component of the

final examination.


2. Theoretical examination

consists of 4 subject areas 

(Clinical Kinesiology,

Physiotherapy, Psychology, Pathological Physiology and Sports Medicine)

Students "draw" o­ne

question (one topic area) of each subject (Students are assigned two queastion

of Pathological Physioogy and Sports Medicine, and 3 questions of

Physiotherapy), which may be further specified by the examination board.


  • students

    answer the questions in the order given by the examination board

  • each

    subject (part of the theoretical examination) is assessed independently.

    If failed, students repeat just the subject (part) they failed in; the

    failed part is repeated at the following legal term (according to the UK

    FTVS Study and Examination Rules)

    NOTE: despite failing any part of the theoretical

    examination (except for the thesis presentation), students are allowed to

    continue with the practical component.
