Students from Non European universities: exams (only fall semester students)

An official academic calendar has been set by the UC3M for the first semester students from Non-European Universities. The exams will usually take place the second or third week of December and it will be stated on the academic calendar.

Academic year 2020/2021:

  • Getafe Campus (Schools of Social Sciences and Law, and Humanities): 21 and 22 December 2020
  • Leganés Campus - School of Engineering: 21 and 22 December 2020.

You should ask your UC3M Professor once you are at our university.

However, please bear in mind that although first semester students (from Non-European universities) are allowed to take their exams in December, the grades will be posted in January, once all the students have taken their first semester exams. Within the first 10 days following the exam (January official dates), the professor will publish the provisional results on Campus Global. If you do not agree with the grade, please contact your professor.

Second semester and retake exams must be taken during the official exams period according to the academic calendar. Earlier or distance exams are not allowed.
