The Examination Board monitors the final academic level of the programme and ensures that the programme has high-quality examinations and strict but fair appraisals. The Examination Board checks that the Education and Examination Regulations (EER) are followed and makes sure that the examinations run smoothly.

If you want to submit a request to the Examination Board, make sure that you consult one of the study advisors first. They can advise you on the possibilities and potential outcomes of your request. They can also assist you in formulating your request in the best possible way.
