Exam accommodations

A student can apply for exam accommodation in cases of illness or disability. 

MF shall safeguard that the exams of students with documented needs are accommodated in a way that offsets the disadvantage(s) caused by the disability in question. At the same time it must be ensured that all students are examined on equal terms. The accommodation can not be so extensive that it proves an advantage compared to other students. This means that the student is not guaranteed the exact accommodation for which he/she applied. 


Application for alternative exam form (coronavirus high risk groups only)

If you or someone you live with is in a high risk group, and you are registered for a school exam, you can apply for exam accommodation on school exams, or an alternative form of examination.

There is an extended deadline for these applications; November 1st. Documentation and a recommendation from a doctor or similar health personnel must be attached to the application. It is not possible to forward any documents after the deadline.

More information about high risk groups is available at FHI's web pages. The consideration of an application will be based on FHI's definition of high risk groups. If  you or someone you live with is not in a high risk group as defined by FHI, the recommendation from the doctor or similar health personnel must explain why an application for an alternative form of exam still should be considered.


September 1st (autumn semester) and February 1st (spring semester). 

A dispensation from the deadline can be granted if the needs for accommodation arise after it has passed, or if there are other special reasons to deviate from the deadline.  

Application form:

You must be able to document the need for accommodated exams. All statements/documentation must be dated recently and clearly state that there is a need for the accommodation for which the student is applying. 

The application form includes a form to be filled out by your doctor/a health professional. This, or other satisfactory documentation, must be appended to the application, or be forwarded as soon as possible after the student has applied for accommodation.

Application process:

The application will normally be processed within four weeks after the deadline. Each case will be treated in accordance with our confidentiality regulations. 

A letter of resolution will be sent by mail to your registered address. If an accommodated exam is granted, this will also become visible in Studentweb, where it will be specified what you have been granted and for how long the resolution is valid. Resolutions concerning accommodated exams are preferably made for one-three years at the time. If the needs in question are of a permanent character, accommodation may be granted for the entire study period.
