Certified absence

  • In case of illness, accident or force majeure, upload a (medical) certificate to the online tool ABSENT (in Dutch) no later than three working days after the examination concerned.
  • Contact the lecturer-in-charge no later than the day of the exam via the ABSENT tool (in Dutch) to arrange a catch-up moment within the regular examination period. In case of force majeure, the lecturer-in-charge determines if the absence is justified. In case of a catch-up exam, the evaluation method as mentioned on the course sheet may change. In consultation with the lecturer-in-charge, a new exam date within the same examination period is made. 
  • If you have any questions or problems, please send an email to fsa.lw@ugent.be .
