La présence au cours est OBLIGATOIRE. L'étudiant absent à plus de 30% des séances avec ou sans justification est irrecevable à présenter l'examen. Cette irrecevabilité est d'application non seulement pour l'examen de 1 ère session mais aussi pour celui de la seconde session. L'étudiant est, en conséquent, noté « absent » ou « excusé» pour l'ensemble du cours.
 
Le stage organisé dans le cadre du cursus n'entre pas en ligne de compte pour le calcul des 30%
