Binding Study Advice
Binding Study Advice (BSA) means that all students enrolled in the first year of a full-time Bachelor's programme for the first time may not continue with that programme if they do not meet the BSA threshold by the end of the first year. At the Faculty of Social Sciences, the threshold you are expected to meet is 42 ECs.
The BSA is issued by the Committee on Binding Study Advice for First-Year Students on behalf of the dean of the faculty that offers the full-time Bachelor's programme. If you receive a negative BSA, you will not be able to re-enrol for that same full-time Bachelor's programme at Radboud University for the next three years.
The dean of a faculty may decide that the negative BSA issued to you also applies to one or more other Bachelor's programmes that are offered by the same faculty and that largely share the same first-year curriculum with the Bachelor's programme you were rejected for.
