Students going abroad as exchange students to one of Hanken's partner universities must also register as present for the period of their exchange. Students going abroad as freemovers can choose if they want to register as present or as absent for the period of their stay abroad.
Students who are registered as absent do not have the right to take part in classes or examinations.
The right to use Hanken's computer systems will be withdrawn seven days after graduation.
