EER BSc art. 4.5

1) Oral examinations will be public unless decided otherwise by the Examination Board in exceptional cases, whether or not at the request of the examiner or the student.

Graduation symposia (including presentations and group testing) are excluded from this provision.

 

EER MSc art. 4.6

1) Oral tests will be conducted in public, unless the Examination Board has determined otherwise in a particular case, possibly at the request of the examiner or the student.

2) A student or examiner who wishes third parties to be present during an oral test must submit this request to the Examination Board at least ten working days prior to the oral test. This does not apply for graduation colloquia (and presentations and group testing).


Rules and requirements

It is a rule that oral exams or tests are public. When you want to change this for a specific exam you can submit a motivated request to the examination board explaining the reason for your request.

These are the conditions for making this request:

  • The request should, on forehand, be discussed with the examiner of the course. He/she needs to confirm that in this specific case the change of the nature of the test or exam is necessary and possible.
  • If this request is made because of your personal circumstances, the study advisor must be informed about these circumstances.

The following should be included in your request:

  • Motivation
  • The name of the test/exam (complete name of the module/course or component incl. course code) and the planned date of the test/exam.
  • Detailed Study progress overview (Osiris)
  • Confirmation of the examiner
  • Confirmation of the study advisor (only for examination board MS)

When an examiner wishes to change the public nature of an oral exam or test this means that this will apply to all the students involved in the module or course.
An examiner cannot make a request for a student in a specific case. The student needs to make this request himself.
