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.

Requests to the Board of Examiners

Before submitting a request make sure that:

uSis/Web form only

The Board of Examiners will only process your request, if you submit it via the appropriate procedure. There is uSis for course exemptions, and webforms for an extra exam resit and for other requests. Please make sure to provide all the requested details.

Depending on your request topic, make your choice below and use the appropriate procedure to submit your request.

Request to the Board of Examiners regarding the elective space or an exemption for an individual course

Request to the Board of Examiners for an extra resit due to personal, extraordinary circumstances

Examinations are held twice during the academic year for each component offered in that year. It is possible to register for exams from 100 till 11 days before the exam. Students who fail to register for an exam during this period, cannot participate in the exam.

If you fail to register for the first exam opportunity, you cannot participate in that exam and must register for the second exam opportunity in that academic year. If you fail to register for this second exam opportunity, you will have to wait until the next academic year to sit for the examination of this course.

In a limited number of cases, a student can request to be registered for an exam after enrollment has closed. Late registration will only be considered if the request reaches the Board of Examiners before the fifth working day before the exam, and if the failure to enroll can be demonstrably linked to force majeur, or if the consequences of non-registration will lead to a disproportionate delay in studies. The request must be accompanied by documentary evidence.
