Board of Examiners

The Board of Examiners is charged with overseeing the implementation of the Education and Examination Regulations (EER) and is responsible for the organisation and coordination of the exams for each programme.

The Board of Examiners determines whether students meet the programme requirements as stipulated in the EER. This includes the following responsibilities:

  • approving elective courses;
  • confirming exam results;
  • appointing examiners;
  • determining final results;
  • overseeing the order in which exams are taken;
  • granting resits;
  • overseeing the validity of completed exams;
  • granting exemption for courses;
  • evaluating final projects of different programmes;
  • determining fraud;
  • imposing sanctions in case of fraud;
  • determining guidelines for grading exams that fall within the parameters of the EER.

You can apply for approval, exemption, etc. by filling in the digital forms on the Rules and Regulations page.

It usually takes a month for the Examination Board to review students’ requests (elective courses, exemptions, etc.).  The Examination Board always tries to handle each request as quickly as possible, but they cannot guarantee that in some cases the process takes up to a month. It is therefore very important to submit requests well in advance.


All communication with the Examination board is done digitally.

Ask the Examination Board a question.

Do you disagree with a ruling?

If you do not agree with a ruling of the Examination Board or examiners, please contact the Examination Board’s registrar: drs. A.K.M. Rijken.

If this does not settle the issue, you can file an appeal with the Examinations Appeal Board.
