A student who writes and defends the diploma project is exempted from the professional final exam and the topic and mentor are agreed with the head of the department. The dissertation will be discussed at a department meeting and approved by the principal at the beginning of the school year.
A special book will be issued by the Department Academic Affairs to students who have been granted the right to work on their thesis. During the year, students will conduct research, analysis, and project work on their chosen topic. Students and mentors must make notes in their notebooks and sign them each time they meet with their mentor for counseling.
The students’ transcript will be reviewed by the board of directors in the middle of the school year and evaluated.
