EXAM visit means that students take their own higher education institution’s electronic examinations in other institution’s EXAM facilities. It is the responsibility of the student to read the EXAM visit instructions of the host institution before booking a time for an EXAM visit. Instructions include information on the opening hours of the EXAM visit facility, possible access rights you need when entering the facility and what software is available on the EXAM computers. These determine whether it is possible to take the exam in question in the host institution. In addition, students must read the Code of Conduct of the host institution’s EXAM facilities.
Institutions where EXAM visits are possible are listed on the following homepage: https://e-exam.fi/in-english/. There you will find the institutions that provide the EXAM visit service, and the direct links to the EXAM visit instructions of the host institution. Each of these have opened at least one computer for EXAM visits in one of their EXAM facilities. Please note that the booking situation may be congested from time to time in some of the host institutions because they are a popular EXAM visit destination among students. If free time slots are not found during the exam period, book your exam at your home institution or another host institution offering EXAM visits. Please note that the home institution is always responsible for individual study arrangements.
