Examination boards BMS

How to submit a request

According to the Dutch Higher Education and Research Act (WHW) the examination board has the competence to deviate from the rules stated in the Education and Examination Regulation (EER) of this university in specific cases. For that students can submit a motivated request which then will be decided on by the examination board.

When you want to submit a request, please read the following information carefully. Only requests that are complete and submitted on time will be dealt with.


The examination boards meet once a month. A request must be in at the registry two weeks before the meeting of the examination board. There are four examination boards, each representing specific educational prgrammes. You will find the meeting dates of the boards and the deadlines for sending in your request in the meeting schedule. You will receive the decision of the board on your request the week after the meeting.

Required information

Requests can only be submitted through our web application form. First you fill in your personal information and the subject of your request. Then you upload the motivation for your request. In this motivation you refer to the rule from the EER and/or the Rules and Regulations of the examination boards concerning your request. Your request must be completed with several attachments so the examination board has all necessary information to make a well-founded decision. All requests must at least come with a detailed study progress overview showing the results of all individual module components (Osiris). A statement from your study advisor in case of personal circumstances is mandatory for the examination board of Management Sciences. Other attachments may be e.g. a medical statement, a certificate or an exemption form.
The subjects on which the examination boards can decide are mentioned in the EER of the UT and in the Rules and Regulations (R&R) of the examination boards of BMS (click on the links for the full texts). Below are all subjects.
