Differential Exams

Do I need to pass differential exams?

The materials for individual differential exams will be published in the web office, which you can access with the information assigned to you upon enrolment as a student or as a citizen.

1. How is the candidate informed about the differential exams he or she needs to pass?

The candidate first submits an application for enrolment in the desired programme and the required evidence. On the basis of the received enrolment documentation, the Student and Academic Affairs Commission sends the candidate a decision stating the required differential exams. You can also receive information on differential exams in advance from the Student Office on the basis of a sent inquiry regarding study.

2. The dates of differential exams for enrolment in study programmes:

  • are determined and published in advance (performed at the same time as regular exams),
  • the candidate and the course coordinator can agree on the exam date and inform the Office about it.

3. How do I apply for differential exams?

Send the application for the exam to the e-mail address: [email protected] at least 7 working days before the exam date. The Office will issue an invoice based on your application. You must pay the invoice at least 4 working days before the exam date and send the payment receipt to the Office, which will also register you for the exam.

4. The price of the differential exams?

The price of the differential exam is:

  • EUR 130 at the undergraduate level and
  • EUR 150 at the postgraduate level.

The price is valid for taking the exam up to three times.

** NOTE ** Pursuant to the decision of the School Administrative Board, the candidates for enrolment in the 1st cycle subsidized study programme Advanced Social Studies and the 2nd cycle subsidized study programme Intercultural Management are not charged for differential exams from 24 June 2017 onwards.

5. Possibility of recognition of differential exams

If you want your differential exams recognized, you must submit an Application for Recognition of Exams. If the exam is recognized in full, you only need to pay for the recognition procedure (EUR 100). If the differential exam is recognized only in part or if it is not recognized, you are required to pay both the exam recognition procedure and the price of the differential exam.
