Illness during the exam period

Agreement accordingly the acceptance of Medical Certificates within the Flemish Universities:

(Education and Examinsation code - art 75 §4)

"Any absences need to be reported to the Examination Office as soon as possible and no later than the day of the exam. Students who believe that they have a well-founded reason to be absent are required to submit the original supporting documents to the examination secretary as soon as possible and no later than three working days after the examination concerned.
In case of illness or accident, a medical certificate is required from a doctor who declares that he or she effectively examined the students at the latest on the day of the missed examination and established the illness or the consequences of the accident himself or herself. Certificates are not accepted if they only report the student’s explanation (i.e. dixit notes) or if they were drawn up after the day of the illness or accident (i.e. certificates after the event). Doctor’s certificates dealing with (particular) sports activities need to specify the activities in which the student cannot take part."

Practical arrangement in case of illness:

  • Register your absence within three working days after the exam for which you were ill.
