Due to the corona measures, some assessments will take place on campus and others will be held online. Your study programme will let you know how, when and where assessments will take place.

Digital assessments

Digital assessments can take different forms, for example open-book exams, oral exams and essays. For these types of assessment, tools such as Kaltura, Brightspace and the exam platforms ANS and Remindo are used. 

Online proctoring

If the above-mentioned types of assessment are not an option, your lecturer might instead opt for an exam with online proctoring. This means your exam will be digitally invigilated. The university uses the Proctorio online proctoring system.


Proctorio make it possible for your exam to be invigilated via your webcam. During your exam, Proctorio records data such as images and sound that are later analysed by software. If the software flags any suspicious behaviour, this will be sent to a university staff member for evaluation.


When you take part in an exam with online proctoring your privacy is well protected. We ensure that only strictly essential data is collected and that this is dealt with with the utmost care. You can read how we do this in the Proctorio privacy statement
