You may turn to the following people for advise:

  2. Course coordinator: for questions relating to the contents of the courses you are enrolled in.
  3. Study Advisor: for complex questions or problems relating to study planning and progress, personal problems such as home sickness, mental health and so on.
  4. Student Desk Humanities: for more practical questions related to your studies.
Guideline exams missed due to illness or force majeure

In order to qualify for a resit you must make sure you deregister for the test on time (ie. before the exam starts). You should do three things:

  1. Fill in the test de-registration form. The cancellation is confirmed automatically.
  2. Inform the course coordinator of the cancellation by email, for example by forwarding the automatic confirmation received.
  3. Submit proof of illness or force majeure to the Study Advisor within five days of cancellation (such as a doctor’s statement). Include your student number, course name and course code. You can do this by email.

This guideline applies to exams, partial tests, presentations, oral exams, papers or any other form of testing.
