Exemption for (part of a) Module

If a student has already (provably) achieved all the learning goals of (part of) a particular study unit (hereafter called the original study unit), for instance in the course of a previously started (and possibly finished) programme at the same or another institution, then (s)he may request an exemption. A student may also request an exemption for a practical exercise in case of moral dilemma. If the request is granted, this means that the student is deemed to have passed the unit, which will consequently be marked as such in the SIS.

Instead of granting an exemption, the examination board may decide that the student has followed a deviating programme in which the unit for which the exemption is requested is actually replaced by the original unit or that the student should instead do an extra replacement unit – in particular if the original study unit is part of a programme that has already been awarded with a degree.
