Guidelines for exemption due to public holidays

The Ministry of Education "refers to the Universities and Colleges Act section 43 fifth paragraph that the institution, as far as is possible and reasonable, must facilitate the study situation for students with special needs. The facilitation must not lead to a reduction of the academic requirements set for the individual course "

The educational institution and student should work together on good and appropriate solutions for facilitation.

The faculty and the student can jointly come up with a solution for whether/how the exam, test, compulsory teaching, performance, lab exercises etc. can be retaken.
