Complaints and Appeals
If you do not agree with the assessment of an exam (this can be oral, written or any other form of assessment), first discuss this with the teacher responsible for the course. If you are unable to resolve the matter together, you can submit a complaint/objection to the Board of Examiners. The Board of Examiners will handle the complaint and take a decision. If you do not agree, you have 6 weeks to lodge an appeal against this decision with the Examination Appeals Board (CBE).
Complaints and Appeals
After passing all courses you will be awarded the corresponding Bachelor or Master diploma. The Board of Examiners is responsible for awarding diplomas and determines whether a student receives a cum laude. The Rules and Guidelines for the academic year 2021-2022 for the Bachelor's degree program state that the cum laude diploma no longer applies to starting Bachelor's students from the academic year 2021-2022. Students who started earlier may still be eligible for the cum laude diploma.
For Bachelor students, the diploma is awarded during a separate diploma ceremony that is organized several times per academic year. You will receive an invitation for this. As a Master student you will receive your diploma immediately after your final presentation and assessment.
The rules regarding education and exams are laid down in the Teaching and Examination Regulations (TER) and the Rules and Guidelines of the Board of Examiners (RGoB). The dean is responsible for the TER and the Board of Examiners for the RGoB. The regulations concern, among other things, the organization and coordination of examinations, the appointment of examiners and the fail-pass scheme. More information about the TER, RGoB, Exam Policy of the faculty and the Graduation Manual can be found here.
Fraud includes cheating, copying someone else's ideas or texts without citing the source (plagiarism), free riding in group work or using fictitious data in (usage) research. If a teacher suspects a student of fraud, this will always reported to the Board of Examiners. They are conducting an investigation and will make a decision after hearing all parties involved.
