Each student has a student advisor within the university where he is studying. The student advisor is a member of the EMSP Steering Board (or acts as his deputy).
He/she assists students with all issues related to their study track. The student advisor can help the student with the choice of elective courses, the choice of a master thesis subject, problems with timetables etc. He's also the first person to be contacted in case of study track related problems. Problems relating to the organisation or the content of specific courses should in first instance be discussed with the responsible lecturer.

The exam procedure differs from university to university and from lecturer to lecturer. Exams can be written or oral exams, closed or open book etc. The degree by which lab work during the semester accounts for the final grade may also differ. Therefore it is important that the students are well informed about the expectations of each lecturer. At the start of each course module the responsible lecturer will provide the students with information about the nature of the exam and what will be expected from the students. In the course of the semester the lecturer will also make available a copy of typical exam questions to the students.
EDUCATION AND EXAMINATION CODE
All students are subject to a set of common examination and educational rules (EMSP EDUCATION AND EXAMINATION CODE).
On top of that they are subject to some specific rules of each hosting university. We have ensured that the EMSP rules comply with all the local rules. All of these rules and regulations are under control of an Examination Board.
