Students choose themes and define assignments themselves. This stage is also a part of evaluation. Now, the role of a teacher is more that of an opponent. Increasingly, the emphasis is put on wider context of creation, which is supported by the structure of theoretic courses. The fifth year is the last opportunity to verify the capability of team work on a common project.


Independent realisation of the tasks coming out of the students´creative nature.
