BENEFRI Examinations

All students in the program must pass two examinations about structural and functional neuroscience. Both are oral exams lasting for half an hour. The exams are scheduled in spring and in autumn (see examination dates). The commission recommends to take the first part within the first year of the curriculum and the second within the second year. The exams should be finished at the latest half a year before the presentation of the thesis. In case of failure the exams can be repeated once.
