Types of evaluation

Evaluation of the Intensive courses is optional:

• Failure to perform the evaluation gives the participant an attendance certificate, which must be requested to the Erasmus and International Relations Office, by email;

• The completion of the evaluation and approval gives the participant a certificate of completion stating the number of ECTS obtained and grade, which is requested to the Erasmus Office and International Relations, by email.
The completion of the evaluation and approval of two/three intensive courses also gives the participant the possibility to replace an elective course from the bachelor or career-focused master’s programme. The number of intensive courses to replace the regular course depends on the number of ECTS of the latter.

Evaluation can be done by written exam or written paper. The evaluation terms (date, duration, exam reference materials; and date, theme, number of pages of written paper, etc.) are defined by the Professor of the course.

The submission of the written paper must fulfil the following requirements:

• Unless otherwise indicated, the written paper must be sent by e-mail to the professor, given notice to GERI;

• The written paper must be sent in PDF format, indicating in the subject field of the email the name of the intensive course and the student number. After sending the written paper by e-mail, the participant must leave in GERI a signed “Declaration of Honour”;

• The same “Declaration of Honour” should appear at the end of written work, in the following way: “I declare on my honour that this work was done independently, without external help and without using any other bibliographic source other than the one specifically mentioned in text of my paper”.

Declaration of Honour


In order to complete the course, participants must attend all classes. The participants are called in the beginning and in the end of each class.

Absences are not admitted to intensive courses, except in exceptional and duly justified cases.

It’s only allowed one absence and justification must be made in writing and emailed to cursosintensivos@fd.ulisboa.pt.

Constraints on assignment evaluation

The failure in submiting the declaration of honour, lack of attendance and lack of payment, imply not publishing the final grade and conditions the issuance of the certificate.

Additionally, in case of plagiarism, the participant’s admission in future courses, will be subject to GERI appraisal.


FDUL students access the courses’ classifications in the virtual academic office.
The remaining participants will receive the grades by e-mail.

Whenever an intensive course is part of the students study plan, it will count for the final grade of the programme.

It’s not possible to request grade reviews.


Participants may request from GERI two types of certificates:

• Certificate of attendance attesting to the participant’s presence in the intensive course;
• Certificate of completion stating the grade and the ECTS credits obtained.

FDUL students who attend and approve their courses do not need to request for the certificate, since the course’s information and grade will be included in the Diploma Supplement.

The certificate of attendance may be requested by FDUL students that don’t want to have evaluation/grade.

The issuance of the certificate is subjected to the compliance of attendance and assessment rules and, also, of the payment of the intensive course.

Dropout, absences, failure

The dropout, absence and failure imply the non-completion of the intensive course and conditions the issuance of the certificates of attendance or completion.

Cancellation of intensive courses

For FDUL students enrolled in the intensive courses on the registration act:

The cancellation of an intensive course by GERI implies changing the registration of the affected student, who may, instead, enroll in any other available intensive course (as long as there are still available places) or, instead, ask for the refund.
