Regulations concerning exemptions

If you believe that you already master the material of one or more of the courses you may apply for (an) exemption(s) at the Examination Board. Based on your academic record they will then decide whether or not to grant the exemption(s). Whatever the outcome, your degree will have to contain 120 EC of new courses, meaning that you will have to do another course to make up for the exempted EC.
