Plan your semester

You can plan your courses so that you can travel back earlier than the semester officially ends. In general, semester course exams often take place in December (autumn semester) or May (spring semester).

If you find out that your semester course exam is scheduled in January/June, you can still make course changes. Additionally, home assignments can be submitted from anywhere in the world so you can make sure to choose courses with that exam form if you want to leave early.

The exam format is stated in the individual course description. See links for the undergraduate coursese and graduate courses for details.
