Written exams for the next 14 days
It has been decided to convert written on-site exams scheduled to take place within the next 14 days into take-home assignments. The date and time of your exams remain the same. You will receive further information about your specific exams via a message in WISEflow and/or BlackBoard.

Oral exams
As far as possible, all oral exams will also be converted into take-home assignments. You will receive further information via a message in WISEflow and/or BlackBoard.

Bachelor's project and Master's thesis defences
Students registered for a reexamination in connection with their Bachelor’s project or Master’s thesis scheduled to take place in the near future may choose between getting a grade based on their written assignment or participating in an oral defence. Due to the physical closure of the university, the oral defence will take place via Skype.

FAQ and chat for students
The physical closure of Aarhus University gives rise to a number of questions concerning teaching, exams, exchange, internships, etc. For that reason, the university has introduced an information page where you can find answers to your questions. Click here to visit the page. The questions and answers will be updated regularly. The page also includes a chat function where you can ask additional questions.

Introducing other teaching formats
To support the continuous learning of our students in the time to come, Aarhus University has supplemented the digital learning infrastructure with different learning formats and activities that support distance learning. This allows us to translate traditional classroom teaching into other learning formats. Please stay updated on your courses in Blackboard. Here, your lecturer will inform you of how the teaching format of your courses will change in the next few weeks. The university has never before had to apply this technology on such a large scale. Therefore, we ask for your patience in case not everything is working optimally.

In addition, we will continuously keep you updated via your AU email and the BlackBoard pages of your courses.
