The instructions and regulations concerning examinations
Most courses are assessed by a written examination at the end of the course. The lecturer will notify the students about the examination procedures in question. The exams should be evaluated by the lecturer within 2 weeks.
The instructions and regulations concerning the examinations and essays are:
- register according to the instructions (10 days in advance, by filling in a form or by computer)
- go to the examination in time, no admittance 15 minutes after the examination has begun
- no books, notes or other materials are allowed at the examination, unless specifically mentioned
- talking to other students is strictly forbidden during the examination
- copying answers from other students is strictly forbidden during the examination
- you may not leave the examination hall until half an hour has passed from the beginning of the examination
- if you need to leave the examination room temporarily during the examination, you must have the permission of the supervisor
- essays are individual work and they should not be copied from other students or from the Internet
- essays should always have references to works consulted and/or quoted, with a bibliography at the end. All forms of plagiarism, e.g. copying from the sources without proper reference indication, is regarded as falsification, which is taken very seriously and will at least lead to repudiation
- please ask the teacher for advice if you are unsure of the rules!
There are certain rules concerning examinations and essays, set out by the University Law and the regulations of each university. Violation of these rules is considered a serious offence and will be punished with failure to complete the course in question, a warning by the Rector, and in serious cases, suspension from the university. The most serious violation is to cheat in examinations or to plagiarise in an examination or on essay. Any violation against these rules by exchange students will be reported to the student’s home university. Before that, however, the student will always be informed of the matter and has the right to be heard. In the case of exchange students who have already returned home, the case will be dealt with by the student’s home university.
