The transition rules that apply to the master Computing Science can be found in the Education and Exam Regulations(EER). Below, we describe the most relevant changes that apply this year. For transition rules regarding the Societal Specialisations, please check the EER.
- General transition rules
Some courses in the master Computing Science are offered once every two years, alternating with other courses. In general, at the request of students who did not pass the exam last year and who need to complete the course to obtain their degree this year, one exam opportunity can be scheduled in the year in which they are not offered. If this applies to you, please contact the study advisor before November 1st.
