Students from other institutions may apply to take their examination at the University of Agder.
Under certain circumstances, students who are not able to take an examination at the University of Agder (for example, because of student exchange) can apply to take the exam at another location.
External students who want to take their exam at UiA
Students from other institutions who would like to take their examinations at the University must pay the following fees:
application fee of NOK 500,- (must be paid even if the student does not take the exam)
handling fee of NOK 500,- (if the exam is completed) – a total of NOK 1000,- for each examination.
In addition the student must cover any invigilation costs, if there are no other exam scheduled at UIA on the day of the exam. Costs are as follows: NOK 200,- per examination hour, plus 1 hour before and 1 hour after the examination.
The above does not apply to incoming exchange students at UIA. No fee is charged for these students.
UiA students who want to take their exam somewhere else
In very special cases, students who are unable to physically take an exam at UiA (e.g., due to exchange programs) can apply to take it elsewhere. This applies to both written and oral exams, but please be aware that you are responsible for ensuring that the technical equipment works if you take an oral exam externally.
UiA students wishing to take an exam externally should be prepared to pay an administration fee to the University of Agder.
In Norway: NOK 700,-
In Europe and elsewhere in the world: NOK 1000,-
Students on exchange programs organized by UiA are exempt from payment if they have valid absence during the regular exam.
To take an exam externally, you are personally responsible for finding an external contact person. This person is responsible for completing the section "for external contact person" in the application form. Remember that both you and the contact person must sign the form.
Note: We may not be able to offer the same type of accommodations for students with special needs as we do for exams taken on our own campus.
Exchange students from UiA at universities abroad
Exchange students from UiA at universities abroad where exams take place in January, may apply to take their exams at UiA.
They will have to pay an administration fee of NOK 1000,- for each exam plus cover invigilation costs, if there are no other exams scheduled at UiA on the day of the exam.
Exchange students from UiA at universities abroad who have failed their exams or been legitimately absent from their exams, may apply to take their exams at UiA. No fee is charged for these students.
