Information about the Binding recommendation on continuation of studies (BSA) is given in several information meetings, see the Powerpoint presentations on the Canvas-site Industrial Design (Engineering)/Modules/Bachelor. For more details on this regulation check the Student charter on the website of Industrial Design Engineering.
After the final binding recommendation there is an opportunity to be heard in a hearing when you think that you have wrongfully received a negative binding recommendation.
For more information on the BSA-procedure and on the conditions for the hearing please see https://www.utwente.nl/en/ces/sacc/regulations/bsa/
To clarify: this year the hearing takes place on August 22nd, 2019. The committee consists of two programme directors (OLD) of the faculty Engineering Technology. You will be given 30 minutes to tell your story the way you want to. You can bring someone along if you want to, although this person cannot speak on your behalf. The committee will ask informative questions if they feel the need to, but will not in any way reward value to your story during the hearing.
The deadline for applying for the hearing lies within 5 days after the intended negative binding recommendation is awarded. You can apply for this hearing by sending an e-mail to email@example.com . When you apply please make sure that you mention your name, student number and programme.
