English is the language of instruction in courses at FGS (excluding courses in the framework of the Science Teaching track).
Length of courses
The length of a semester is usually between 13-16 weeks. The length of a course must be at least 2/3 of a semester. If lectures are cancelled If for any reason, the lecturer may coordinate with the FGS the scheduling of additional lectures to cover the relevant material.

Absence from Lab Courses Requiring Advance Registration
Students who have been approved to participate in lab courses requiring advance registration and are absent from it for unjustified reasons, will be given a failing grade, without an option to change this grade.
It is usual that within the first month of a course, students are informed of: the course requirements, assignments they will receive, whether they will be required to take an exam (and if so, written or oral), and present a seminar or submit a final paper.
The Type of Grade
Each lecturer may choose one of two grading methods: Pass/Fail or a numerical grade (on a scale of 100). The FGS does not permit a combination of the two methods in one course. It is usual to inform the students at the beginning of the course regarding the grading method.
