(https://www.retsinformation.dk/Forms/R0710.aspx?id=183435) (in Danish only)

3.2 Regulations for 1st year examination

The following rules apply to students who enrolled in their degree programmes on or after 1 September 2016: In the academic regulations for each Bachelor’s degree programme, the university stipulates which exams the students must participate in before the end of the first year of their studies (the first-year exam). Students must pass the exams included in the first-year exam before the end of their first academic year in order to continue their enrolment in the degree programme, regardless of whether they have used three examination attempts, cf. the Ministerial Order on University Examinations and Grading (the Examination Order) https://www.retsinformation.dk. Introductory language courses are not included in the first-year exam, and the first academic year begins at the start of the first semester that includes non-introductory courses.

The following rules apply to students who enrolled in their degree programmes before 1 September 2016: In the academic regulations for each Bachelor’s degree programme, the university stipulates which exams the students must participate in before the end of the first year of their studies (the first-year exam). Students must pass the exams included in the first-year exam before the end of their second academic year in order to continue enrolment in their degree programme, cf. the Ministerial Order on University Examinations and Grading (the Examination Order) https://www.retsinformation.dk. For students enrolled before 1 September 2016, the examinations included in the first-year exam are:

Basic Themes of Theology
Religious Subjects
Knowledge of the Bible
Introduction to the study of theology


3.3 Regulations for commencement of studies exam

The following rules regarding commencement of studies exams come into effect on 1 September 2016, cf. section 16 of the Examination Order, ministerial order no. 1062 of 30 June 2016:

The compulsory commencement of studies exam will be held before the end of September on the first semester of the Bachelor’s degree programme.

The exam generates 0 ECTS credits and is a pass/fail internal examination with no co-examiner.

Two examination attempts are allowed. First-semester students are automatically registered for the exam. The result will be posted in the student’s self-service system (mit.au.dk).

Students who do not pass the first examination attempt will automatically be registered for the second attempt.

The result of the second attempt will be posted in the student’s self-service system (mit.au.dk) no later than 28 September.

Students who fail both their first and second attempt will be withdrawn from their degree programme with immediate effect.


3.4 Credit and flexibility

Students who wish to complete degree programme elements at another university or institution of higher education in Denmark or abroad as part of their degree programme may apply for advance approval of transfer credit for planned subject elements. When applying for advance approval of credit transfer, applicants must pledge that they will submit documentation for the mark awarded for the degree programme elements in question (pass/fail) when the subject element has been completed. Applicants must also consent that the board of studies may procure the necessary documentation. Credit will subsequently be granted for successfully completed degree programme elements. The Board of Studies can also approve credit transfer from Danish or foreign institutions of higher education, cf.the Degree Programme Order and the Examination Order.If the university approves the credit transfer of a passed subject or subject element from a Danish or non-Danish institution of higher education, the assessment must be credited as 'Pass' or 'Approved'. If the subject element in question is assessed according to the 7-point grading scale at both institutions, the grade is transferred with the credit. If a subject or subject element etc. is taken at an educational institution abroad, an enclosure to the certificate must indicate the grade awarded according to the grading scale used at that institution and must provide a description of the grading scale used.

3.5 Registration and withdrawal

Registration for courses, exams and elective courses
Students are responsible for registering for courses and exams each semester. Students following the prescribed curriculum for their degree programme will automatically be registered for teaching and exams in the obligatory courses of their degree programme in the prescribed order stated in the academic regulations immediately before the registration deadline. Students are responsible for ensuring that their registrations are correct by the deadline for registration and withdrawal.

Students must register for and (when necessary) prioritise elective courses before the set deadline, which can be found on the study portal. After the deadline for withdrawal, the elective course becomes a compulsory part of the student’s degree programme and cannot be changed.

The deadlines for registration and withdrawal can be found on the study portal.

Registration for second exam attempts:
Students who do not pass their first exam attempt must register for the re-examination before the set deadline, which can be found on the study portal. Re-examinations are held immediately after the ordinary exam. In order to register for the re-examination, students must have participated in the ordinary exam immediately prior to the re-examination. The deadline for withdrawal is the same as the deadline for registration for re-examinations.

When the academic regulations specify a special form of examination for the re-examination, this form of re-examination must be used unless the student meets the requirement for class participation and the exam is interrupted due to documented illness that entitles the student to a re-examination.

If the ordinary exam depends completely or partially on class participation that involves practical exercises, the student can only attempt to pass this exam by registering for teaching. The student must therefore register for second and third examination attempts by registering for teaching the next time the course is offered.                 

Registration for third exam attempts:
Students must register for third examination attempts before the set deadline, which can be found on the study portal. The third examination attempt is held at the same time as the re-examinations, unless only one form of examination is specified and the student asks to take the third examination attempt at the same time as the ordinary exams. Any such request must be submitted no later than at the end of the registration period for third examination attempts. Students should not expect requests submitted after this time to be considered. The deadline for withdrawal is the same as the deadline for registration for re-examinations.

See Aarhus University’s exam rules and regulations http://www.au.dk/om/organisation/regelsamling/5/56/

For rules regarding the requirement that students must earn 45 ECTS credits per academic year see http://www.au.dk/fileadmin/www.au.dk/Regelsamlingen/2016/41-12_AU_regler_studieaktivitetskrav-en.pdf


3.6 Spelling and fluency

When assessing bachelor projects, master's (candidatus) theses, master's projects and other major written assignments, emphasis must, in addition to the academic content, also be placed on the students' spelling and writing skills. The curriculum stipulates how spelling and writing skills are weighted in the overall assessment of the examination performance, but the academic content is always given the highest weight, unless the subject or subject element is language or foreign language

3.7 Regulations for assignments

Conditions regarding the extent of written submissions are stated in the description of each degree programme component. A normal page for written submissions is 2400 characters (with spaces). To calculate normal pages, both text and notes are included, but not the front page, table of contents and bibliography. Written submissions that do not comply with these conditions cannot be accepted for assessment.

3.8 Using computers for examinations

For the university's regulations regarding the use of computers in examinations, see http://www.au.dk/en/about/organisation/index/5/56/5605theuseofcomputersinexaminations/

3.9 Project-oriented courses

Options for project-oriented courses are stated in the description of the individual study element.

3.10 Exemption

An exemption is a deviation from that or those regulations that normally apply for the area in question. Exemption can be granted on the basis of an application sent to the authority that has the power to grant such exemption. An application for exemption must be submitted to the Board of Studies. If another authority has the power to grant exemption, the Board of Studies forwards the application to the appro-priate authority (e.g. the dean, rector or ministry). An application for exemption must be made in writing, stating reasons, and submitted as soon as possible. For the application to be processed immediately, it must include a precise account of the regulation from which exemption is sought, and what such exemption is intended to achieve (e.g. permission to use special aids, extension of examination time, postponement of time limits). Documentation for the unusual conditions that justify exemption must be enclosed with the application. Importance will not normally be attached to such conditions if they are not documented.

3.11 Appeals and complaints

Complaints must be submitted to the Board of Studies. A prerequisite for immediate processing is that the complaint must be made in writing, stating reasons. The complaint must state both the cause of the complaint and what the complainant expects to achieve. Complaints regarding examinations must be submitted no later than 14 days following the release of the examination results, cf. The Examination Order. If your appeal is denied, you have the option of bringing it before a board of appeals. The board of appeals may only hear appeals regarding academic issues. The appeal, which must be in writing with reasons given, must be sent to the board of studies within two weeks of receipt of the university's decision.

3.12 Examinations

Closer regulations regarding how and to what extent the student must have participated in classes in which the type of examination involves such participation are stated in the description of the individual study element. In the assessment of all written examinations, emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to present an academic problem area and manage an academic task, including compliance with formal academic requirements (references, quotations, etc.). In the assessment of all oral examinations, emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to present academic material, organise an oral presentation and enter into academically constructive dialogue. The results of all examinations are stated in the examination result (the diploma), including their ECTS value. An average is calculated with one decimal place of all graded assessments. Each assessment is included in the calculation of the ECTS value. Acts and executive orders, as well as the university's rules and regulations relating to education, are available in the electronic rules and regulations of Aarhus University at http://www.au.dk/en/about/organisation/index/5/56/
