Each class lasts 50 minutes. There are 32 classes per week. In one scholar year you learn during 40 weeks.
Classes start at 8:05 and end at 11:35 with a twenty-minute break between 9:40 and 10:00. They reconvene in the afternoon at 12:50 and finish at 3:20 pm. Every week, 2-3 hour written exercises or written tests are given to the students. They are meant to assess each student’s knowledge and spot his/her gaps so as to allow the professor to redress the situation immediately.
The French language courses are taught mainly in the morning while the academic courses (Maths, English, Accounting and Italian) take place in the afternoon along with the French-speaking students.
