Examination and Diploma

The University of Bergen uses different forms of examination such as school examinations, assigned exam papers, take-home examinations and oral examinations. The type of examination may vary according to the subject.

Main content

Many courses require students to complete mandatory assignments (e.g. lab work or methodological assignments) or a term paper before being permitted to take examinations. Many language courses offer continuous assessment throughout the semester.

Before attending any examinations all students must read relevant examination information, including ‘Instructions for candidates’, ‘Use of sources in written work’ and more.
