Examination service


Examinations are tests which are usually organised at the end of a course. Exams are usually written but they can also be conducted as oral or practical tests. You should be notified of the dates for the exams at the start of the course. 

Always register for the exam

In order to take part in an exam you must be registered or have had a registration for the course and have registered for the exam itself. Make sure that you are registered as a student on the course in the Student portal. Exam registration opens around three weeks before the examperiod and can be done through the Student portal.

If you have any questions, please contact Servicecenter.

If you have not registered in advance, you will need a certificate of registration for the course. You access the certificate in the Student portal.

You will need to wait until the invigilator has started the exam for the registered students, provided that there are places available in the exam hall. Students with disabilities must (following a meeting with the University's disabled student officer) submit a special form two weeks prior to the exam date in order to receive assistance. The form should be sent to the Student Affairs Department. 

Important considerations for written exams

Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to spare. Valid general ID should be shown. It is not permitted to choose your seat yourself. You are responsible for checking what aids are permitted in the exam room. Notes, tablets, mobile phones etcetera may not be taken to your allotted desk. Any conversation between the candidates is not permitted. The candidate may not leave the room until 40 minutes after the start of the exam at the earliest, even for visits to the bathroom. Disabled students can be provided with specific assistance during the examination. A plan for assistance requirements should be made by the disabled student together with the university disabled student officer.


Students who fail in an examination are entitled to a re-take. Each ’regular’ examination includes the possibility of a further two re-take exam dates. If further dates are required, the student may be asked to sit the exam based on a new or amended syllabus from that of the original course. This regulation is in force regardless of whether the three exam dates have been used up or not. The lecturer responsible for the course has the right to organise an extra exam providing that there are specific reasons for it and the examiner approves it. If students fail twice in an examination for a course or part of a course, they have the right to change examiner.

Exam results and follow-up sessions

Results can be found in the Student Portal. As a student, you have the right to an oral or written follow-up of the exam. The date/time for this follow-up session is notified at the latest when the exam results are notified. Candidates have the right to receive their exam scripts starting from the day of the grading approval and for a maximum of one year afterwards. After this, the School has no liabilities in terms of archiving exams. Once students have received their exam scripts back from the office they can no longer request the revision of the original corrections/marks.
