Faculty and study programme regulations

At faculty and study programme level there are various regulations in place to make sure everything runs as it should. For example there are thesis regulations 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 will be your study programme's ‘Course and Examination Regulations’ (known as OER in Dutch).  

Course and Examination Regulations for our bachelor's programmes can be found on the Dutch page under 'Wiskunde en Natuurwetenschappen'.

Course and Examination Regulations master's programmes

In the Student Charter (‘Studentenstatuut’ in Dutch) all rights and obligations of students, the University, Faculty and the programme are laid down. Besides being a collection of all rights and obligations, the Student Charter also lists all facilities provided by the University available to students. The charter also contains an overview of the legal protection of students. The rights and obligations laid down in the Student Charter are derived from the legislation of the Higher Education and Reseach Act (‘Wet op het Hoger Onderwijs en Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek’, WHW). Every student is deemed to have taken notice of all parts of the Student Charter.

The charter comprises two parts. The Institutional part is equal for all students and can be found on the website of the University and a hard copy is made available at PITSstop (Information and Support Services & Information Desk Plexus Student Centre).

The departmental part of the charter addresses students of a specific programme and comprises two parts:

  • The Course and Examination Regulations (OER in Dutch), and
  • The Rules and Regulations set by the Boards of Examiners (R&R).

In the OER and R&R a.o. the rules of the Faculty regarding admission, examinations, the degree programme and organisation are laid down.
