    • All registrations must be saved on the IS-Academia system, plateform for the official registration.
    • The deadlines of the academic calendar must be respected.
    • No late registration is accepted without good reasons.
    • The faculty secretariat does not confirm registrations. The Sitel emails are authoritative for the status of exam registrations.
  • First attempt
    • Obligation to register at the start of the semester, for each course that students wish to follow, within the deadlines given by the academic calendar.
    • When the course is registered, the exam is automatically registered for the session which immediately follows the end of the course.
    • Only the first registration for the exam is automatic.
  • Second and third attempts
    • For the second and subsequent registrations, students must register on their own, either for the evaluation of the retake session, or for the evaluation corresponding to the semester during which the course is given again.
    • All subsequent exams must be registered by the student, within the deadlines given by the academic calendar for exam registrations.
  • Exam failure or justified absence to an exam
    • Students who fail the exam of a course taken the previous year only register for that same exam again (for the semester of the first registration).
    • It is possible to follow the new course, without registering for it and informing the teacher that the exam will be taken on the materials of the previous year.
  • Outside of faculty courses
    • No automatic registration for the exam for extra-muros courses.
    • Students must register on their own for exams taken outside of the faculty, respecting the information and deadlines given by the faculty where the course is followed.


  • Assessment procedures
    • The official assessment procedures are those that are indicated in the curriculum of the concerned programme: 
      • E: exam during the exam session at the end of the semester.
      • EI: evaluation organized during the semester.
      • O: oral exam during the exam session at the end of the semester.
    • Retake exam after 1 or 2 failures: unless otherwise specified in the course description, 2h written exam during the exam session at the end of the semester or the retake exam session.

    • Exams are kept for one year.
    • They may be consulted, preferably within one month of the publication of the results. Students may consult their exam, including the grading scale, and be given an oral explanation of their results. During the consultation, which lasts a maximum of 15 minutes, the student may not take notes nor photographs. 
    • To consult the exam, an appointment must be made either with the professor/assistant or with the secretariat of the concerned institute.
    • Consultation is not permitted 15 days before an exam session.
