Dersom utvekslingssemesteret avsluttes senere enn det påfølgende semesteret starter ved UiS, vil instituttet/fakultetet (i samarbeid med partnerinstitusjonen) sørge for tilrettelegging av din utdanningsplan, slik at du ikke blir forsinket i dine studier.

Det finnes ulike muligheter for tilrettelegging: Det kan være at man tar emner som ikke krever at man er tilstede under eksamensperioden, at man får fritak fra obligatorisk undervisning ved UiS eller at man får forlenget frist for innlevering av bachelor- og masteroppgave.
