Your course syllabus
There are numerous sources of law and regulation that govern the university as well as guidelines and recommendations developed internally within the university, the faculty or the department that will affect how examinations are carried out in your course.
The most important document for you to keep an eye on as a student is the syllabus. According to s. 6 p. 15 in The Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100) the syllabus should contain all the information you might need about the course examination. It also required that information in this regard has been decided upon and communicated to you well ahead of time.
Diverting from the syllabus
Due to the unique circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic and the national and local recommendations, the university ahas decided that all syllabuses regarding Spring semester 2021 have to be conducted digitally to the extent it is possible. As such many courses have been forced to change the form of examination that is stated in the syllabus. In order to do so in a regulated way, the Faculty’s have developed routines to process such changes.
