The course entirely takes place on Curaçao and includes lectures, fieldwork, and experiments.
Registration on electives (except field and Lab methods) are dealt with directly with the Serviços Académicos. The MBM coordination will not interfere in that process. Be attentive that if you enrol in a subject and later on you want to change you are subject to a small penalty, so think well beforehand on what are your best options.
Students in groups of two will have to prepare a detailed research plan, which will have to present at the end of the course. They will participate in an ID survey and will be evaluated by an ID exam and the presentation of the research plan. The minimum passing grade for each component will be 9 out of 20.
