Examinarium and prevention of the spread of viruses!

Wearing a protective face mask is required on University premises, unless there are no other people present.  This covers also EXAMINARIUM exams. You can use your own mask and, if necessary, you can pick up a disposable mask from the janitor.

Attend an exam only when you are healthy and free of symptoms.

Hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes are available in the exam rooms in Helsinki. Wipe the keyboard and mouse before and after the exam. You can also use your own protection ware (face mask, gloves) during the exam. Remember to dispose the protection ware properly.

If you have any symptoms of an illness, reschedule or cancel your exam. If necessary, contact your examiner
