Examinations of the academic year Type of programme: University tertiary education
2 weeks between the end of November and mid- December
These consist of extraordinary examination sessions which take place in December; therefore, not every student takes these exams, but only those who ask for this possibility instead of during the ordinary periods. Teaching activity is not stopped meanwhile.
About 1 month between May and mid-July, depending on whether the university conducts its extraordinary examinations in July or in September (no teaching activity during this period)
3 weeks between the second week of June and the second week of July (in some universities the first two weeks of September 2016)
Type of programme: non-university tertiary education:
There are generally three periods of examinations: before Christmas holidays, before Easter holidays and before summer holidays. Schools are free to fix examination dates within those periods.
