Additional information
Kontakttundides osalemine on väga soovitav, kuid lubatud on ka täiesti iseseisev aine omandamine eeldusel, et õppija osaleb sissejuhatavas seminaris, kus tutvustatakse aine sooritamise nõudeid. Seega, hindamisele pääsevad kõik ainele registreeritud tudengid vaatamata sellele, kas ja kui palju on nad õppetöö kontakttundides osalenud.
NB! Hindamiseks peab esitama iseseisva töö ja sooritama testi. Nii iseseisvat tööd kui testi võib esitada/sooritada kuni 2016.aasta kevadsemestri vahenädalal toimuva järeleksamini. Kui peale seda tähtaega pole positiivset sooritust, siis tuleb ainet uuesti kuulata (korduskuulamine on tasuta).
