A failed examination or other study attainment can be retaken twice. A failure to attend an actual examination is considered to be one completion attempt. (Laurea degree regulations.)
All staff and students of Laurea are expected to adhere to good scientific practices, which includes appropriate referencing. Familiarise yourself with the practices and, if needed, ask for more information. All study assignments are to be done as individual work unless otherwise instructed.
