Additional information

If you want to challenge an exam (e.g. you do not agree with the grade that was given), you have to go to the feedback moment. This is after all classes and exams have ended, at the end of the academic year. So if you leave after your last exam and you want to be able to challenge your exam, you have to travel back to Leuven. Please keep this in mind when booking your room/accommodation.
