For those students wishing to take exams for the Nijmegen School of Management who are abroad for their studies at the time of the exam, there is the option of completing a Nijmegen School of Management exam while abroad. This refers to the following students:
- Students who are required by their study programme to go abroad in a period during which a first or second exam opportunity occurs. They have the option of taking the exam abroad, or an alternative time/format has to be offered.
NB: this applies only to students following the course for the first time this academic year. A student who has already had two exam opportunities in a previous academic year is not eligible for this regulation.
- Incoming exchange students who, due to an irregular semester schedule, cannot take their exams at Radboud University in January and are following the 4 EC courses with an exam in December, may resit an exam from block 1 at their home university, provided that they attended the first exam opportunity.
- Incoming exchange students who are only present for the first semester can resit a block 2 exam at their home university, as long as they attended the first exam opportunity (with a maximum of two exams).
NB: this arrangement will apply only if practicable.
Note that it is not possible for NSM students to take a (resit) exam from the partner university at Nijmegen School of Management.
Submitting a request
If you belong to one of the groups above and would like to sit an exam while abroad, following the procedure below is essential.
1. You are required to check yourself whether it is possible to:
- have the exam take place at the same time and day as the exam in the Netherlands;
- have a room made available at the foreign university where the exam can be taken, and where, in the event of a digital exam, a stable internet connection is available;
- have available a suitable device (laptop or desktop PC) with a Chrome browser to take the exam, in the case of a digital exam;
- have an invigilator present at the foreign university during the exam.
- NB: your email has to arrive 15 working days before the date of the examination.
- If your request gets approved, make sure to also register separately for the resit exam by filling out the resit registration form from the IMO-office.
3. After receiving your enrolment form, a member of the exam organisation will check whether you do in fact belong to one of the groups above and will then discuss it with the Examining Board where necessary. If you may in fact take the exam abroad, the contact person of the foreign university will be approached. Arrangements will be made and information shared with this contact person on:
- the general exam instructions, such as toilet visits, phone usage, invigilation etc.;
- technical instructions on logging in, the PIN code and e-support, in the case of a digital exam;
- in the event of an exam on paper, the time at which the exam will be sent abroad (one or two hours before the start exam);
- in the event of an exam on paper, the time at which the contact person needs to return the completed exam.
4. A member of the exam organisation will contact you as soon as it is clear whether this can be arranged.
