This is with regard to university studies. I can only find references saying it means 'university exam', but I was wondering if it meant 'final exam' or similar.

Welcome to Spanish.SE! I have edited the question to be about the meaning of the term, rather than the English translation--translations to English are off-topic for a site about Spanish, for obvious reasons. But questions about the meaning of a Spanish term are well on-topic. – Flimzy Jan 31 '14 at 2:56

Reading about the 'examen de grado' is more a exposition or final project, in Spain is called the 'proyecto final de carrera'

Final examination are the annual exams for the different courses.

The correct translation for that should be 'final year project'

El examen de grado es el proyecto final de carrera. Como puedes ver en este ejemplo de la Universidad de Navarra es cuando expones el proyecto desarrollado ante un jurado. En mi caso para el resumen en inglés puse:

Bachelor Presentation

Como aún no estás graduado puedes también poner

Undergraduate Presentation

Para la documentación en vez de Presentation pones Thesis.

De la wikipedia

A thesis or dissertation is a document submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree or professional qualification presenting the author's research and findings.

Si quieres ver más información sobre cada país te aconsejo mirar este apartado

Porque como puedes ver en el ejemplo de Canada y para las que son de habla inglesa.

At English-speaking Canadian universities, writings presented in fulfillment of undergraduate coursework requirements are normally called papers, term papers or essays. A long paper presented for completion of a 4-year bachelor degree is sometimes called a major paper.
