Examinations and certification

Examinations and certification in Danish higher education


Students in higher education are required to sit examinations for all courses.

Examinations at the higher education institutions are administered not only by the teacher, but also by an examiner who, in the case of most examinations, must be external. The external examiners are responsible for assuring the same standard for all examinations and thus for their quality.
