Exam Ombuds Service

The Exam Ombuds Service deals with any problems during the exams.

For instance:

  • when you cannot take one or more exams due to force majeure or another serious situation
  • when you think you are going to be late for an exam
  • when you have a legitimate complaint about an exam
  • when you want to lodge an objection against an exam decision
  • when you accused of fraud or plagiarism
  • when your exam takes place on a religious holiday recognised by KU Leuven / Odisee

Then contact the Ombuds Service at your campus as soon as possible.



Special circumstances and force majeure (e.g. illness, accident, ...) can only be reported in person or by phone - NOT via voice mail or text message - and in any case before the exam takes place. Please also carefully read the info sheet on the Exam Ombuds Service.
