Policy for handling written exams abroad for LiU students and written exams at LiU for foreign students

Examination is a vital part of the learning process. Thus it is of utmost importance that the examination can be conducted in a secure way according to Swedish law. All students should plan their studies so that they can take all written exams during their stay at Linköping university. The university has decided that the following rules should apply.

You are not allowed to take written exams in our courses at your home university

Students enrolled at Linköping university are as a rule not allowed to take written exams outside Sweden (in courses given at Linköping university). Exceptions can be made only in very special circumstances, and only if guarantees can be made that the exam can be conducted in a secure way according to Swedish law. Such circumstances can include e.g. serious injuries or prolonged illness. The student who wants to take the exam is responsible for arranging a suitable location (e.g. at a partner university or at an embassy) and a contact person. Exceptions are decided by the head of the department after a written application, explaining the reasons why the student cannot attend the normal written examination at Linköping university.

We will not supervise your exams in courses from your home university

Linköping university can take no responsiblity for arranging or supervising exams in courses not associated with Linköping university for students from other universities outside Sweden. Exceptions can be made only in very special circumstances. Contact the Student Service Desk.

This decision can be found (in Swedish) in the Linköping university policy collection.
