All these documents can be found on the websites of the Faculty of Geodesy www.geof.unizg.hr in the section Documents, Regulations.

How is the teaching activity organised?
The teaching activity at the Faculty is organised as full-time activity according to the syllabus and curriculum.
Full-time teaching activity is performed in winter and summer term, lasting 15 instructional weeks.
Which are the exam periods, how are exams registered for and the registrations cancelled?
Academic calendar and examination schedule are published at the beginning of each academic year.
The exact schedule of examination dates can be found via Studomat application or on Intranet of the Faculty of Geodesy.
The examinations are scheduled in such a way that the number of examination dates for each course can include all students in every exam period who are eligible to sit for an exam.
Students register for an exam via Studomat application (Higher Education Institutions Information System – ISVU). If a student cannot sit for an exam that he/she has registered, he/she is obliged to cancel the exam within the period defined by ISVU.
A student who has not been able to sit for an exam, and has not cancelled the exam in due time, can request in writing that his/her absence from the exam is not considered as not sitting for an exam. A student who does not cancel an exam on time, is not eligible to sit for an exam until the next exam period, i.e. examination date, and a teacher records that he/she has not presented himself/herself for an exam. A student who withdraws from the exam that has already started gets the grade 1 – insufficient.
Be sure that the presentation for an exam is not some kind of a game of chance. You should not sit for an exam just like that, but normally only when well prepared and certain that you will pass the exam. It is recommendable to consult a teaching assistant or a professor before presenting oneself for an exam.
Read everything about the exams in the Statute of the University in Zagreb, in the Statute of the Faculty of Geodesy, in the Regulations on Studying at the University in Zagreb, and in the Regulations on Studying at the Faculty of Geodesy.

Students should participate actively in all aspects of teaching process. It means, that they should always ask at lectures and during exercises if something is not clear. All problems that might come up in learning should be discussed with teaching assistants and teachers.
At the end of each semester students through ISVU need to access fulfilling anonymous polls that evaluate the performance of teachers. Sometimes, polls will be fulfilled also on the paper.
Students can take part in discussions via Faculty Intranet.
