Regulations, procedures and documents overview

Here you can find several important regulations and documents applicable to Applied Mathematics (AM) students.

There are specific requirements for getting access to some parts of the AM bachelor programme, for example for the minor in modules 9 and 10 and the graduation semester in modules 11 and 12. If you want to know more about these requirements, please check the current EER  for the AM bachelor programme.

  • Assessment

    Any course is assessed by an exam. This exam can consist of a number of tests and varies per course. The way in which the tests lead to the exam result is laid down in a test plan for each course. This plan is published at least two weeks before the start of the module on the Canvas page. Where and when the tests will take place can be found in the module’s timetable. Any changes, for example test data, will be made announced on the module’s Canvas page.


    An overview of all the rules concerning assessment can be found in the Education and Examination Regulations (EER), Article 4 – Education and Examination.

  • Form Alteration BSc Study Programme

    If, for whatever reason, you have to change your BSc programme, please fill out the accompanying form and send it to the examination board (address on the form). Your study advisor or the programme coordinator may help you with this matter.

  • Binding Recommendation (BSA)

    First-year students and second-year students with a postponed recommendation will receive their proposed final recommendation (bsa) by email in mid-August.  You find the specific AM rules regarding the binding recommendation in the EER, article 9.4.

    For more information, you may visit the Student Services webpage on the binding recommendation.

  • Bachelor's Exam

    The Bachelor examination

    The bachelor programme is concluded with a final examination by which the examination board decides if a student has passed. When you are nearly finished with all courses it is time to apply for the bachelor examination. Usually this is the case when finishing your bachelor assignment. By applying for your bachelor examination you also apply for your bachelor diploma. You can use the following registration form:

    On this form you can indicate what you will do after your bachelor AM. If you indicate you want to continue with a master's programme at the UT, BOZ will forward this to the student administration. When the examination board has confirmed the passing/completion of the bachelor examination, BOZ will also indicate this to the student administration. Send your registration form to BOZ-AM  via email (boz-am@utwente.nl).

    The AM examination board meets monthly and there is one bachelor graduation ceremony per year. In 2022 this ceremony is likely to take place in October. The meetings of the examination board usually take place in the last week of the month; you can apply until the first week of the month. In the summer months this schedule may deviate. You can find the meeting schedule on the website of the examination board.

    If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact BOZ-AM:

  • Soft Separation Bachelor and Master 2022-23

    The soft separation of Bachelor and Master is also known as 'Master before Bachelor graduation'. The MSc programme AM has decided to allow students to follow master courses in 2022-23 before the bachelor’s degree has been obtained or premaster’s programme has been completed.  This is only possible under certain conditions.

    The most important conditions are:

    • the reason for the delay must be covid-19-related;
    • the student does not have more than 30 EC incomplete from his/her bachelor’s programme;
    • the bachelor’s degree and/or the premaster programme must be completed before 1-9-2023. Otherwise, the student must stop participating in master courses from that day on.
    • the student must apply for a conditional admission to the MSc-AM programme.

    Below you find two forms on this. The first document describes the rules, procedure and deadlines. The other document is the application form (in Word format).

    The first deadline for B-AM students is 23 January 2023 (to discuss your study plan with the programme coordinator B-AM, and obtain a signature) to start 1 February 2023.
