Class format
Although WU has seven different examination types, approx. 90% of courses available to incoming exchange students are continuous assessment (“PI”) courses. These courses are highly interactive courses including lectures, case studies, papers, presentations, and group projects. Exams and tests are held during the regular course sessions, and there is no special exam week at the end of the semester.

Attendance and participation
Attendance is mandatory in all continuous assessment courses (“PI”), which account for 90% of all courses at WU.

Course registration
WU’s online registration system LPIS allows students to register for courses even if they overlap. As attendance is mandatory, it is the students’ responsibility to only register for courses they can attend in full.
Course registration is based on a first-come, first-served principle; therefore, we strongly recommend that students choose two back-up courses in case their registration for their preferred courses is not successful. Bachelor students can only attend bachelor level courses, master students only master level courses. Course numbers at WU have a purely administrative function and change every semester.

Exam dates
Exam dates depend on the courses chosen. There is no specific examination period for all courses.
