Teaching methods

Theoretical and practical training. Learning activities involve classroom lectures and practical activities. The latter, carried out with the students divided into groups, are designed to provide the student with a hands-on view of macroscopic organisation (through dissection) and microscopic organisation (by observation under optical microscope) of the organs of the animals.

Assessment methods and criteria

Practical test and oral examination.
