Documents, regulations and procedures overview

Here you can find important documents, regulations and procedures 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.

    Any student who does not agree with the proposed recommendation may request a hearing with the AM programme board within five workdays following the date of the email. Please do so by sending an email to secr-oes-eemcs@utwente.nl with subject “Request for bsa AM hearing”. After five workdays, the proposed decision will turn into a definitive binding recommendation automatically.

    The date of the hearing will be announced (end of August 2024). After the hearing, the programme board will inform you, by email, about the decision. The latter will be your final bsa.

    In case of personal circumstances, you must inform your study advisor and submit your assessment application before 30 June. Therefore, you must have a meeting with the study advisor well before 30 June.

    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 it is decided 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).

    There is one bachelor graduation ceremony per year. In 2024 this ceremony is likely to take place on October 18. Please indicate on your registration form whether you are planning to join the ceremony.

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