Exam instructions

This page offers you information about the enrolment for examinations and the University’s examination procedures as well instructions for resolving problems with enrolment.  

General exams are exams that are organised by the University’s centralised Exam Services. Students enrol for general exams in advance via the student information system Sisu. General exams are organised in the form of conventional paper-based exams both on the Hervanta campus and the City centre campus. If you need to retake a general exam, you must enrol for the retake in advance via Sisu. 

Students can also take electronic exams in the EXAM facilities, and teachers may offer alternative modes to completing exams (such as exams in Moodle). In the latter case, students enrol for the exam as instructed by the teacher.

In all exam-related questions, you may contact Exam services (examservices.tau [at]
