General information on handling credits and certificates

Please note that for technical and and data-protection reasons, students themselves must ensure that documents and scores issued by the Language Centre such as grades, credits, and certificates are kept in safe custody for the duration of their studies and beyond. The Language Centre cannot assume liabilty for a loss of documents. Please do not remove your name from course lists on OPAL because this will automatically delete all your scores stored in the system.
