New Student's Guide
When students receive their offer of admission to the Undergraduate College, they are advised to consult the New Student's Guide to find out what they need to do before their courses start.
Students must comply with the obligations set out in the study regulations (PDF, 179 Ko). Failure to fulfill one of these obligations may result in having to repeat a course or not obtaining the degree.
With regard to the references and citations that students use in their work, respect for intellectual property is fundamental (link to doc being drafted). Plagiarism and fraud are severely punished, as specified in the anti-plagiarism charter (PDF, 59 Ko).
The student life regulations (PDF, 357 Ko) apply to the political, union, sporting and cultural activities that students pursue through clubs and associations.
