a. The examination board can under specific circumstances deviate from this rule. Students can submit a motivated request on this subject at the examination board.


Rules

The examination board can allow students to deviate from the public nature of the thesis and make it confidential. However it will only do so very rarely! That is because the thesis is part of the degree programme of the student and as a consequence should be public. Presentation of (confidential) research outcome to the organization or company where the assignment is executed can be done in a separate presentation instead of in the colloquium. Confidential information does not necessarily needs to be presented in the thesis.

The examination board made the following rules:

All theses, public and confidential, will always be accessible for the supervisors (or programme management), the examination board and the accreditation committee.
