The student must be registered to all exams in order to present them (including a seminar, course without exam, written work, written or oral exam, etc), .

Registration to exams takes place during the 3rd and 4th weeks of the semester. Late registration is permitted during the 5th and 6th weeks with a cash payment of CHF 200.

All exam registration that does not respect these rules shall be automatically canceled.

If you have any problem, please come at the Student exchange Office

The time schedule notification for the Autumn semester is beginning of December and for the Spring semester is beginning of May.

Exam session

Exchange students must present their exams at the official exam dates, in the same manner as local students (a written exam cannot be replaced by an oral exam, etc.). It is therefore forbidden to individually organise one’s exams with the professors.

We recommend being in the exam room 15 minutes before the beginning of the exam for the instructions.


Exchange students are allowed to bring a language dictionary but in paper format, not electronic (without any annotations) to their exams.


Use of calculators : see the official course description
Utilisation des calculatrices aux examens 2019-2020  (77 Ko)


The exam results can be accessed via the following website: http://www.hec.unil.ch/resultats.

An official transcript will be sent only to the coordinator from your home university.

Exams assignments check

Exchange students have to contact : hec.incoming@unil.ch

Information on assignments check (PDF)

Each student has to come to consult the exams himself. If the student can delegate someone to look for him, this person has to come with a procuration signed by the student allowing him to see the exams in his name, as well as with a copy of the identity card.

The person who will come has also to present his identity card.

Retake Session / Failed Exam

A failed exam during the winter or summer session can be re-taken a second and last time during the next catch-up session only (autumn session) on the dates set by the School. No application for a special or off-site exam will be considered.

The registration deadline is always by midnight on the last day of the 30th week of the calendar year (mid-July) and lasts 2 weeks. The registration process is the same as for other sessions.

Please consult the website or the billboards for more information.


Exam regulations, courses, etc., please consult the HEC Lausanne regulations.
