Academic Training Year 2021 - 2022 - subject to modification


Teaching Modalities

The program starts in September and attendance is required.
Students who have passed the second year of the MIDO Bachelor's in Mathematics and Computer Science with a specialization in Mathematics and Economics are automatically admitted to the third year of study.
The program is divided into two semesters, S5 and S6. Each semester is made up of a foundational unit of instruction, supplemental courses, and electives, in a set distribution. Each foundational unit consists of a number of courses. Each course is worth a certain number of ECTS credits; each semester corresponds to a specific number of ECTS credits obtained by passing the courses for the semester.
S5 is worth 30 ECTS credits, of which 20 correspond to the foundational unit, 4 to courses related to the student’s specialization, 2 to supplementary courses, and 4 to electives.
S6 is worth 30 ECTS credits, of which 20 correspond to the foundational unit, 4 to courses related to the student’s specialization, 2 to supplementary courses, and 4 to electives.
Students register for courses in “Second Language 5 and 6” and “Sport” for the full year; final grades for these subjects are administered in S6.
The “Sports” elective is subject to a course cap (max. 15 students).
Only students who did not take “Contemporary Issues” in Bachelor’s Year 2 can take it in Year 3.
Registration for supplementary courses (whether required for the student’s specialization or electives): Each student has the freedom to select a certain number of courses and must declare these when they register. No further changes can be made to the specialization or electives (for S5 and S6) after the third week of classes. After this date, enrollment in any course will be deemed final and students will receive a final grade for that course (even if they do not sit the exam).

The final grade for a course is the cumulation of grades for continuous assessment, projects, midterm exams, and final exam. The continuous assessment grade can consist of a number of elements, including projects, homework, written or oral exams, attendance, and participation.
Every course for which a student receives a final grade of 10/20 or above is deemed passed, and the appropriate ECTS credits are granted.
A unit consists of several courses. Students are given a final grade for the unit: this grade is the weighted average of the final grades they have received for each course in the unit. The relative weight of the final grade in any given course is determined by the number of ECTS credits that course is worth. A foundational unit is deemed passed if the final grade is 10/20 or above, as long as the final grade for each component course is at least 5/20.
If a student receives a passing grade for a unit, they will also be considered to have passed all courses in that unit, and all related ECTS credits.

Each semester consists of a foundational unit, courses specific to the student’s specialization, supplementary courses, and electives. The final grade for the semester is the weighted average of the final grades for all that semester’s courses, and the relative weight of the final grade in any given course is determined by the number of ECTS credits that course is worth.
A student will have passed a semester if all the following conditions are met:

  • They take at least 30 ECTS and receive a final grade of at least 10/20
  • They receive a final grade of at least 8/20 for that semester’s foundational unit
  • They receive a final grade for each course in the semester’s foundational unit of at least 5/20

Once students have passed a semester, they cannot retake that semester’s courses during the repeat session.

To pass a year, the student must have passed both semesters and all their courses and to have received the associated ECTS credits.


Internships and Supervised Projects

Internship not required. The internship is closely related to the student’s studies and to their personal and professional goals. It is a highly recommended element of the curriculum.
