Central coordination for examinations is applied at University West. Unless other information is available, the examination schedule will be presented at the beginning of the course. You will find the examination schedule on the web.
Normally, examination periods are arranged every five weeks from the beginning of the autumn term. The exception is the re-take of the last exam of the spring term. A re-take week is arranged the week before the beginning of the autumn term. Exams can take place during the day or evening, Monday to Saturday.
NB! It is your responsibility as a student to check the examination schedule for when the exam for your course is planned!
