Signing an exam contract means that you have only enrolled to take exams. This means that you are not permitted to attend the courses. The university does not provide any support to students who enrol using an exam contract and these students are only given access to the electronic platforms.
The exams you sit under an exam contract are the same as those taken as part of the normal programme. To find out what course material you need to revise for each programme component we recommend you contact the professor concerned, preferably through the faculty's student secretariat.
There are two options for exam contracts:
- an exam contract-diploma allows you to obtain a degree in a particular programme
- an exam contract-credit allows you to obtain credits for individual programme components
You will need to meet the admission requirements (including previous education qualifications and language requirements) for the programme in question in order to enrol using a exam contract-diploma or exam contract-credit.
The faculty's written authorisation is also required for all enrolments made using exam contracts, and must include the following information:
- Your name
- The type of contract
- The programme you have chosen (for exam contract-diploma) or the programme which the components belong to (for exam contract-credit)
- The number of credits you need to use
- The name of the contact person in the faculty
Certain programme components require that you attend particular lessons (such as practicals and seminars). As a result, it is not possible to enrol on these programme components using an exam contract. You will then need to make an additional enrolment using a credit contract.
Please note, if you need to apply for a visa, it's not possible to enroll with an exam contract.
