Exams can be held from the end of December/May, but most of them are held in January/June. Make sure to check your exam dates before booking your flights to leave Estonia. Please be aware that taking exams at distance, once you have left Estonia, may not be possible. Do not rely on that option unless you have agreed on taking an exam at distance with your lecturer.
Normally, you can choose from 2-3 dates to sit for an exam. If you fail on the first attempt, you still have a chance for a retake.
At the end of the semester, ask the dean’s office of the faculty you are registered at to issue your Transcript of Academic Records – an official document showing the credits and grades you received at the UT, to be taken to your home university. The transcripts are not issued or sent automatically: remember to ask for it (faculties' contact information here)!
The dean’s office can send you the transcript by post to the address which you have inserted into the Study Information System, but upon student request only.
