Forms of assessment

Examination requirements and forms of assessment vary from one course to another within the programme. Usually, a written examination is arranged at the end of each module, in an exam hall, and a few weeks later there is an opportunity for a re-sit.

At the end of August, there is a final chance to re-sit examinations, which means that all the courses that have been offered during the academic year are re-examined. On certain course components there are further chances to re-sit exams, such as ongoing oral or written examinations, i.e. students are assessed continuously during the course. Another form of examination is to write a dissertation. Take-home exams also occur.

Compulsory components

If a lecture, seminar, etc is specified as compulsory in the schedule, you must attend. Students who have been unable to participate due to circumstances such as accidents or sudden illness will be offered the opportunity to compensate for or retake compulsory components. This also applies to students who have had to be absent because of duties as an elected student representative.

Rules of written exams

(Not applied in current digital exams from home except for precise start and end time)

Written exams begin and end precisely at the stated times. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late for the exam, you do not have the right to take part if anyone has left the examination hall. Valid identification must always be produced! For the first 60 minutes of exam time no one is allowed to leave the examination hall. This applies even if you intend to abandon the exam.
