The faculties at the University of Granada follow two different calendars (Open term and Closed term).  Your specific course and exam dates will depend on the calendar of the faculty in which you take courses.
 
The University of Granada employs a two-week exam/grade review period which is the only time a student may discuss and potentially correct any errors that take place during final exams. Note that some students are specifically requested to attend the grades review period by their instructors, while others may simply choose to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss any questions they may have. The exact dates and times of each review session will be announced when the instructors post the exam grades. Note that the grades review period is not an official part of the program and is not included in your student budget.
*Plan to stay in Granada until the Official End Date or until your finals are over.  No special arrangements will be granted for early exams or early departure from Spain.

The faculties at the University of Granada follow two different calendars (Open term and Closed term).  Your specific course and exam dates will depend on the calendar of the faculty in which you take courses.

The University of Granada employs a two-week exam/grade review period which is the only time a student may discuss and potentially correct any errors that take place during final exams. Note that some students are specifically requested to attend the grades review period by their instructors, while others may simply choose to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss any questions they may have. The exact dates and times of each review session will be announced when the instructors post the exam grades. Note that the grades review period is not an official part of the program and is not included in your student budget.
