Thesis presentations will happen between July 4th and 8th at the Symposium in Faro, they will also be streamed live on Youtube and can be accessed through Matix.

Each thesis is presented through an oral presentation followed by a public debate with both thesis evaluators and the public present in the room. Students have 15 minutes to present their thesis followed by a 10 minutes discussion in which questions will be answered.


Thesis presentations account for 25% of the final grade. They are evaluated on the following aspects: Visual appearance, Content, Speaker's capacity, and General approach to the topic.

Professional Practices carried out by first-year students between April and June are also presented during the Annual Symposium. Via a poster or via alternative exhibition material (video, photo album, game, etc), the student will show the experiences gained during the practice. All creative ideas are welcome.
