        How to justify absences during continuous assessments?
  • Multiple-choice questionnaires, in-class assignments, all work marked during classes. Any absence punished by a grade of 0/20A request for leniency must be made by the student to the Back Office in the event of a justified absence. A committee will meet at the end of the semester to decide whether or not to freeze the grade.

    Step 1
    WITHIN 48 HOURS Provide the Front Office with the original and stamped documents justifying your absence and the “Justification of Absence”, i.e.:Driver’s licence convocation; Hospitalisation documents; Defence & Citizenship Day; Convocation at the Préfecture; Medical certificate for at least 3 days; Instance of force majeure.

    Step 2
    Immediately after submitting the documents, write an email to the Academic Department to make the request for leniency: academico@tbs-education.es
    Writing an email requesting leniency:
    Subject: Request for leniency - Surname, First name, Year, Section

        What are the consequences of cheating during exams?
  • Any student found to be cheating or intending to cheat will automatically be graded 0/20 for the module in question and will receive a warning, noted on their file. This may also lead to annulment of all the student’s grades for the exam session during which the cheating was observed. In certain cases, this may lead to the student being summoned before a Disciplinary Committee.In order to avoid any ambiguity, the following are considered as evidence of cheating (this list is not exhaustive):
    - The use of any means of communication (mobile phone, smart watch, etc.);
    - Failure to comply with instructions given by invigilators or the School’s teaching staff;
    - Possession of any document in the exam room, whether or not it concerns the exam subject, if no documents are authorised for that exam;

        What is URKUND (anti-plagiarism software) and how it works?
  • Urkund is a text-matching tool intended to be used for monitoring plagiarism primarily in academic submissions by students. Academic writing is a craft in itself, and something that students need to learn in order to avoid the accusation of plagiarism. When a document is submitted to Urkund, it is compared to sources online, alongside our multiple academic databases, and also previously submitted documents. The most relevant sources are then singled out and presented in the analysis report, which will show a detailed view of how many paragraphs that could be matched against these sources, as well as how significant these similarities are.

  • +
        What are the consequences of academic cheating or plagiarism?
  • Any work (oral or written) presented by a student must represent their own efforts or those of their group. If the student or group appropriate the work of others as if it were their own, this will be considered cheating or plagiarism. Such work includes written papers, tests, exams, research or internship reports, or any other work assessed as part of the programme of studies. The various reports, case studies, internship and mission reports submitted by the students are run through URKUND anti-plagiarism software.

    In the event of proven plagiarism, verified with a thorough reading of the similarities with external sources, the penalty may range from a lower grade (decided by the corrector) to a grade of zero, or even a summons to appear before the Disciplinary Committee. For the record: «According to the Intellectual Property Code, Article L. 122-4: Any complete or partial performance or reproduction made without the consent of the author or of their successors in title or assigns shall be unlawful. The same shall apply to translation, adaptation or transformation, arrangement or reproduction by any technique or process whatsoever.» To provide you with a broader knowledge of the effects of plagiarism in everyday life: «Plagiarism is a crime. This means that you will face civil and criminal penalties. In other words, you are liable to damages (civil) and up to two years’ imprisonment and a fine of €150,000 (criminal)” (Source: Studyrama, “Plagier, c’est frauder et risquer des sanctions”).

        What happens if one team member incurs in a dishonest practice?
  • Students should be aware that group projects are subject to the same rules of intellectual integrity. All members of a group must pay special attention to ensuring that the group obeys these rules. In the event of failure to obey these rules, the entire group is considered jointly responsible as the failure cannot be attributed to one person in particular.

  • +
        What should I do if I know someone has cheated?

    - Any student found to be cheating or intending to cheat will automatically be graded 0/20 for the exam in question and will receive a warning, noted on their file. The School Management can also extend sanctions to include the invalidation of all results from the exam session when the cheating took place or from the entire area of study with which the cheating was associated;
    - The School Management may also summon the student to appear before a Disciplinary Committee.

  • +
        How can I avoid committing plagiarism?
  • In a research paper, you have to come up with your own original ideas while at the same time making reference to work that's already been done by others. But how can you tell where their ideas end and your own begin? What's the proper way to integrate sources in your paper? If you change some of what an author said, do you still have to cite that author?

    Confusion about the answers to these questions often leads to plagiarism. If you have similar questions or are concerned about preventing plagiarism, we recommend using the checklist below.

  • +
        Who needs to sign my internship agreement: the School, the student and the company?
  • The internship agreement will need to be signed by all 3 parties: the School, the student, and the company. If you are on an internship without an internship agreement:
    1) You are in an illegal situation with regard to the company.
    2) The School will not subsequently validate this internship, the weeks of internship undertaken without an agreement will not be counted, and you will therefore have to redo the duration originally agreed. Furthermore, you may be brought before the Disciplinary Committee.
    3) You are not covered in the event of a work-related or travel-related accident.

  • +
        What are the consequences to do an internship without an agreement?
  • Starting an internship without an internship agreement signed by the 3 parties will entail sanctions, potentially including a Disciplinary Committee.

  • +
        What happened if I have re-sit exams during my internship?
  • If you are called to re-sit exams, it is mandatory to make yourself available to sit these exams. If you are still on an internship you must notify your company of this as quickly as possible. There is a specific clause in the internship agreement.

  • +
        Can I go on holiday during my internship?
  • You cannot take any vacation even if your company supervisor is on vacation. Your supervisor will hand over responsibilities to another person in the business or department for the time being. This excludes any pre-established periods when a company closes, which result in an amendment to your internship agreement.

  • +
        Interruption of the internship
  • If you encounter an issue that you cannot resolve with your internship supervisor, please inform the Internships Office immediately. We are here to offer you advice and guidance. Email: internship-bcn@tbs-education.es. Depending on the precise situation, the School may then be able to contact the company and try to find a solution. The interruption of the mission may potentially be considered as a last resort. This always requires the agreement of the School and a discussion between the 3 parties: the School, the company and the student.If you decide to leave your internship at any stage without the agreement of the Internships Office, you may be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee, which will decide on whether you merit your degree.

  • +
        Can I stop my internship?
  • An internship agreement is a contract that can only be interrupted on an exceptional basis with the School’s agreement. Under no circumstances shall this be a unilateral termination by the student.

  • +
        Acceptable reasons for termination:
  • - Serious personal or family matters preventing the student from complying with all or some of the internship conditions;
    - Non-compliance by the company with all or significant parts of the internship conditions (missions not corresponding to commitments, etc.);
    - Unacceptable physical, material or psychological conditions (e.g. psychological or sexual harassment);
    - Accident or illness suffered by the student requiring an excessive period of interruption.

  • +
        Procedure to be followed if you must interrupt your internship
  • - First the student must (except in the event of a serious accident) arrange a meeting with your internship supervisor or the person signatory of the agreement in order to find any solutions which may enable its continuation, or failing this, come to an agreement on its potential interruption;
    - At the same time, the student emails the Internships Office with details of his or her actions so far;
    - The Internships Office, then contacts the internship supervisor or the person who signed the internship agreement in the company to attempt to reconcile the parties;
    - If there is no solution, the Internship Office draws up an amendment to the agreement to put an end to the internship;
    - The student cannot leave the company before the amendment has been signed by all 3 parties and it has been received by the Internship Office.

  • +
        Is it possible to extend my internship?
  • Once the internship period has been validated, an internship extension remains possible but must be explained by circumstances and must meet the legal conditions for internships.

  • +
        What happened if my Company Supervisor has changed?
  • If your company supervisor changes during your internship, please inform the internship Office in order to send your assessment form to the right person.

  • +
        What happened if the internship involves travelling overseas?
  • If internships involve travelling overseas, the Internships Office must be informed 15 days before you leave so that it can prepare an amendment to your internship agreement. The amendment must be signed by all 3 parties before travel takes place. For your safety and to ensure you have health insurance and social security in case of an accident, you must respect this requirement. Should you fail to do so, there may be serious consequences for you, the School and your host company.

  • +
        SPECIAL PROCEDURE FOR INTERNSHIPS ABROAD
  • To do an internship (paid or unpaid), many countries require students to have a specific visa or work permit. Obtaining this permit will take time (2 months) which you must consider when looking for internships. They will also come at a cost that you need to include in your budget.
    This is the case in the USA, Canada, Japan, Mexico, some Asian countries and Switzerland. There are other countries which may request this and we sometimes only find out what the regulations are during the course of the year. To see current legislation, go to diplomatie.gouv.fr and look at the Goinglobal database at C@mpus/Career Starter. You must also contact the embassy or consulate of the country to which you would like to travel. There is also a Guide to Internships Abroad in the Media Library.

    You must comply with the rules established by the host countries (in particular with regard to visas and work permits). Immigration authorities are becoming increasingly strict and you might run the risk of not being able to do your internship or even being barred from the country for a period of time.

  • +
        What requisites do you need to study abroad? (BiM)
  • You need a minimum IELTS level of 5.0 and an academic level of 10/20. If you don't meet the academic or IELTS requirements after re-sit exams, then your case will be reviewed by the Programme Director. Some partner universities also require Spanish or German B2 levels.

As the student has not gone abroad, they must carry out an INTERNSHIP ABROAD or spend the third year on one of the TBS campuses abroad (Barcelona or Casablanca). Where it is not possible to assign a student for academic or language reasons, the Programme Director will decide on a case-by-case basis, in the student’s best interests and in keeping with the specific requirements. Furthermore, the Programme Department may - in collaboration with the International Mobility Manager - take into account the general behaviour of students and forbid them from certain or all destinations in the event of a meeting with the disciplinary committee or a lack of commitment in a student’s study path and the student’s school (absences, respect towards others, etc.).

  • +
        Which are the exam rules?
  • Late arrival to exams is not tolerated. Students should take care to arrive 15 minutes before the exam start time.
    - Before the start of the exam, the invigilators check the identity and signatures of students as they enter the room. Any student without ID will be sent to the Department responsible for exams.
    - On entering the exam room, students must switch off their mobile phones, remove any earpieces and leave bags, telephones and other personal belongings out of reach in a location set aside for this purpose. They may only keep on their persons the necessary equipment for writing and any documents or equipment authorised for the exam.

    Once the exam papers have been distributed, students arriving late may enter the exam room and participate in the exam if and only if they fulfil all of the following conditions:
    - The delay is due to a case of force majeure and can be proven as such (the student arrives within the first third of the duration of the exam);
    - No students have finished the exam and left the exam room yet. For the smooth running of exams, students must accept any decision taken by an invigilator and any other instructions appearing on the exam papers, together with any other specific rules governing the exam. It goes without saying that any behaviour liable to disturb, distract or otherwise negatively affect the performance of other students or the smooth running of the exam is prohibited.To avoid the fraudulent use of mobile phones, under no circumstances may they be used. Mobile phones must be switched off and placed in the storage areas provided at the entrance to exam rooms. If a student claims not to have a mobile phone and is found to have one in their possession, even switched off, during the exam, this will be regarded as cheating.Smart watches are also banned during tests and must be switched off and stored in your bag, as is also the case for mobile phones. SIf the candidate does not have a bag, they must hand over their smartphone or any other smart device to the invigilator or examiner as soon as they enter the room. Any attempt to cheat will be severely punished (zero grade on the exam, Disciplinary Committee, etc.).

  • +
        When do I have to do a re-sit exam?
  • Every time you do not obtain the minimum grade to get the credits for a module, you have to do a re-sit exam. Mind that some modules do not have re-sit exams (e.g. business games).

  • +
         What are the consequences of cheating during exams?
  • Any student found to be cheating or intending to cheat will automatically be graded 0/20 for the module in question and will receive a warning, noted on their file. This may also lead to annulment of all the student’s grades for the exam session during which the cheating was observed. In certain cases, this may lead to the student being summoned before a Disciplinary Committee.In order to avoid any ambiguity, the following are considered as evidence of cheating (this list is not exhaustive):
    - The use of any means of communication (mobile phone, smart watch, etc.);
    - Failure to comply with instructions given by invigilators or the School’s teaching staff;
    - Possession of any document in the exam room, whether or not it concerns the exam subject, if no documents are authorised for that exam;
    - Possession of a mobile phone (switched on or off) or any other equipment or document which is not expressly allowed on a student’s person is considered cheating;
    - Communicating with another student;
    - Attempting to acquire the work of another student;
    - Passing documents and/or a calculator to another student;
    - Using a calculator not of the authorised model;
    - Being caught in possession of a mobile phone or smart watch (even if switched off);
    - Being in possession of rough paper that has not been distributed by the invigilators 01.

  • Professors will solve students doubts before the exams: Conditions (open books, use of the calculator, …). Students must arrive in front of their examination room 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the test. They must bring their valid student card for each exam.

    Attention, only the Casio fx 92 Collège calculator or Hewlett Packard HP10S models are authorized. No other model will be allowed during the exam.
    The students that are not native speakers of the language that the course is taught in have the right for a dictionary provided by the school during the exam.

    To avoid the fraudulent use of mobile phones, under no circumstances may they be used as calculators. Invigilators will be authorised to prohibit students from using any device other than the model concerned.

  • +
        Which are the rules during the exam?
  • Once the exam has started and during the first hour, no student will be able to leave the classroom. After this period of time you will only be able to do so accompanied by an exam invigilator. No student will be able to enter to the exam classroom if any other student has finished the exam.
    If a student arrives to the exam with delay he/she will have to deliver the exam papers at the same time as the other students. Attempted fraud will suppose the strict application of the measures specified in the Student’s Handbook.

  • +
        I can not come the day of the exam. Can I justify my absence? (BiM students)
  • -If the absence is justified, and only if the student provided written proof to the Academic Department within 48 hours, he/she will be marked as exempted. Then, he/she will have to take the re-sit exam and the grade will not be limited.

  • +
        Do all modules have a re-sit exam?
  • Not all modules have the option to a re-sit exam. Typically, business games do not have a re-sit exam, because they are about experiential learning and team-work (i.e. Plan Mix in Bachelor or Artemis in Master). There are other modules that do not have re-sit exams:
    * Bachelor: Career Starter modules, Sales and Negotiation modules, some Advanced Study Path modules.
    * Master: Consulting mission, Soft Skills, others.

Dictionaries may be inspected by the invigilators. This does not apply to language exams. On the Barcelona campus, dictionaries are available from the reception.

  • +
        Can I have the exam papers?
  • After exams have been completed and marked, all exam papers are kept on file at the Back Office (Exam Management Department), where they can be consulted. If students wish an exam paper to be verified, this must be requested within 2 to 5 days of publication of the results. No request for reassessment can be accepted concerning academic evaluation by the examiners. Requests can only be accepted to verify possible errors by teaching or administrative staff during the recording, transcription or transmission of the exam results. Papers may not be contested or viewed following the results of the re-sit tests.

  • +
        There is an error in calculation in my grade
  • If an error in calculation is found, the Studies Department modifies the original grade as instructed by the correcting examiner. Students should bear in mind that verification may lead to a grade being either raised or lowered.

  • The date of publishing of the grades depends on Toulouse campus (they centralize the grades from all campuses). In average, final grades for a module are published 6 weeks after the exam or more.

  • +
        How do you calculate your average?
  • 1. Calculate your final average for each module: the weighted average of continuous assessment and final exam (eg. continuous assessment grade x 40% + exam grade x 60%).
    2. To calculate your overall average for one semester: Add up the average of a module multiplied by the coef. of the module (often they coincide with the number of credits of the module). The total is divided by the sum of the coefficients. Example, the average for a semester with three modules of 5 credits each= (module1 * 5 + module2 * 5 + module3 * 5)/15
    3. To calculate your overall average for the year: do the same exercise as above but divided by the total coefficient.

  • +
        How is the grading system made?

    The dates of the publication and the various procedures to be followed (for example, for the consultation period) will be systematically sent by email few days prior.

    For Bachelor, the transcript of grades will be published on C@mpus, in your individual space:
    - The provisional transcript of grades of the year (before the receipt of the results of the internship and expatriation in 2nd semester) in July, at the latest;
    - The final transcript of grades will be published at the end of the year after the examination board Jury assembly in September (the date will be communicated to you in due time).

  • +
        How to justify absences during continuous assessments?
  • Multiple-choice questionnaires, in-class assignments, all work marked during classes. Any absence punished by a grade of 0/20A request for leniency must be made by the student to the Back Office in the event of a justified absence. A committee will meet at the end of the semester to decide whether or not to freeze the grade.

    WITHIN 48 HOURS Provide the Front Office with the original and stamped documents justifying your absence and the “Justification of Absence”, i.e.:Driver’s licence convocation; Hospitalisation documents; Defence & Citizenship Day; Convocation at the Préfecture; Medical certificate for at least 3 days; Instance of force majeure.
