EXAMS WINTER 2021/22

Exams in January. Will your exam be held online?

4 January 2022

If you are going to take an exam in January 2022, which according to the academic regulations requires physical attendance, there are two options:

  • Your exam will be held via Zoom without any further changes to the exam form, which are described in your academic regulations.
  • Your exam form cannot be held via Zoom, and you must therefore take an exam with physical attendance as described in your academic regulations.

If your exam is held via Zoom

When will my exam take place, and where will I get the link to Zoom?

You can find your exam date in the exam schedule

You can see the specific time of your exam and the link to Zoom in the Digital exam system.

Guide to online exams

You can find information and guidance on taking online exams on the page here:

If you are infected with Covid-19 and have symptoms that prevent you from taking the exam

If you are infected with Covid-19 and you are too ill to take your online exam, you must observe the standard guidelines for absence from exams due to illness.

If you are going to take an exam with physical attendance

Guidelines if you are to attend an exam on campus

Face masks / visors

You must wear a face mask or visor when you are in the communal areas. You are allowed to take off the face mask / visor when seated, and in connection with exams.

Corona passport

You must be able to present a valid Corona passport when you are physically present at the university. Spot checks are carried out by the university's employees or an external security company, and if you cannot present a valid Corona passport, you will be asked to leave campus.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you may not participate in physical activities on the university campus.

You must comply with the general guidelines for the prevention of infection, including guidelines for hand hygiene when you are on campus.

If you are unable to attend the exam due to self-isolation as a result of infection/suspicion of infection with Covid-19

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 (or if you are self-isolating or experience sudden symptoms of Covid-19), you must not attend exams on campus.

If you are prevented from attending an on-site exam in person, you can de-register from this exam and then register for the re-examination in February.

This will not be regarded as a failed attempt to pass the ordinary exam.

The form of the re-examination is not necessarily the same as the form of the ordinary exam, so remember to check your academic regulations. The date of the re-examination is stated in the exam plan.

How to de-register from an exam:

If you want to de-register from an exam and register for the re-examination, you must submit an application form for dispensation via mitstudie.au.dk before the time at which the exam starts.

Remember to identify the exam clearly – please state not only the name of the exam, but also the date and time.

You must attach the following documentation:

  • If you have tested positive for Covid-19: You must send us a copy of your test result from sundhed.dk as well as your application for dispensation. This test result must be no more than 14 days old.
  • If you have symptoms, or if you are self-isolating: You must complete and submit this solemn declaration.

You must contact us before the time your exam starts

It is important that you submit an application for dispensation as well as relevant documentation before the time at which your exam starts at the very latest.

As long as you apply on time, you will not have failed the exam. If you fail to submit the form on time, you will be registered as absent, which means that you will have used one of your attempts to pass the exam.

What happens if my examiner is prevented from coming to campus in person owing to Covid-19?

If your examiner is prevented from coming to campus in person, we will try to move the exam to a later date. Alternatively, you will be registered for the re-examination without having used one of your attempts to pass the ordinary exam. 

If your examiner is prevented from attending an exam in person, Arts Studies Administration will send you an email before your exam.
 

ABROAD STUDIES IN SPRING 2022

10 January 2022

Due to the coronavirus situation, a number of planned study periods abroad are unfortunately not possible. This may be your host university, who cancels, or yourself, who, for one reason or another, does not want or can go abroad.

If you return from your period of study abroad or if you have not been able to go abroad, you will have the opportunity to register for teaching and exams at AU, even though the semester has already started.

Your options regarding an alternative course depend on your academic regulations and the specific range of courses in the spring semester.

If you wish to cancel your period of study abroad and to be registered for courses at AU, you must notify us by submitting an application for exemption via mystudies.au.dk.

In the "What are you applying for" field, just write "I interrupt my study abroad in the spring semester 2022 and want to be registered for the teaching at AU".

You do not need to attach documentation.

Once we have received your application, you will receive an email with information about which courses you have been registered for.

If you are unsure about which courses you can be registered for, please contact Study Centre Arts.
