Faculty and study programme regulations

At faculty and study programme level there are various regulations in place to ensure that everything runs as it should. For example, there are thesis and faculty regulations, as well as rules and guidelines on assessments, exams, degree classifications and plagiarism.

As a student, the most important regulations you will come across in terms of your education are your study programme's ‘Course and Examination Regulations’ (known as OER in Dutch).  

Exam procedure

The rules set out in this procedure apply to the exams for all study programmes at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. There are 2 'sorts' of exams:

  • Regular exams.
