Board of Examiners

The role of the Board of Examiners is to ensure that study programmes adhere to their Course and Examination Regulations. The Board of Examiners oversees all tests and examinations within the institute and determines whether students have acquired the knowledge and skills required for the awarding of their degree.

Each institute has a Board of Examiners, the members of which are appointed by the Faculty Board. The Board of Examiners is responsible for the effective organisation and quality assurance of all tests and examinations within the institute. If you would like to request a change to your academic requirements, for example an exemption or extension, it is the Board of Examiners who will make the final decision on your request.

Each programme has a Board of Examiners. The Board of Examiners of your department is responsible for the effective organisation of the tests and examinations.

The Board of Examiners has the following tasks:

  • Safeguarding the quality of the examinations;
  • Judging individual student’s requests, among others requests about exemptions, discretionary space, and internships;
  • Treating cases of fraud;
  • Presenting the binding study advice in the name of the Faculty Board;
  • Appointing examiners.

On the tab of your programme you will find more information on the Board of Examiners.
