These changes will not immediately be incorporated into all education systems (Blackboard, Osiris etc.).

Please note the following:

1. We would recommend that you use the English language versions of the education systems. Those will contain the English educational names. In the Dutch versions of the systems, the English names of the programmes will not yet be implemented.

2. In the academic year 2016-2017, you will still see the old Dutch programme names and codes, for example on your student card. This will be corrected before the start of academic year 2017-2018.

3. Starting in the academic year 2018-2019, bachelor diplomas will be issued with the new English names. Till then diploma’s will be issued with the old default name.
