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.

  • Covid-resit request

    For each course for which you request a Covid-resit, you should fill out one form. (You may download the form in pdf-format below.) You should do so at the latest one week after the publication of the final grades of the course.
    For information about the Covid-resit policy, see the Bachelor Applied Mathematics Canvas page, item "Covid-resit".

  • 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)

    The first-year students of BSc-AM will receive a Binding Recommendation (BSA) by email in mid-August. You find the specific rules regarding the binding recommendation in the EER, article 1.2.f.

    Any student who does not agree with the received decision may request a hearing with the AM programme board within 5 workdays following the date of the email. You can send your request to our programme director Prof Dr A. Stoorvogel via email: a.a.stoorvogel@utwente.nl.

    The date of the hearing will be announced; it is very likely to take place at the end of August. After the hearing, the programme board will inform you by email about the decision. You will then receive the final BSA. 

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

    See the webpage of Student Services for more information. 

  • 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:
