Rules of the Examination Board BSc and MSc Article 12

Information about graduating with distinction can be found in the Rules of the Master Examination Board (MEX)



The conditions for graduating with distinction (Cum Laude) have been determined for each program seperately. They can be found in article 12 of the Rules of the Master Examination Board (MEX). The examination board checks if the student meets all the conditions the educational program states. If Cum Laude can be granted this will be stated on the certificate and the supplement.

If a student does not fulfill all the specific conditions, but nevertheless thinks that he/she qualifies for Cum Laude, the student or the program director can submit a request to the examination board.


The specific and exceptional abilities and circumstances of the student’s achievement must be motivated in the request. Moreover the request should contain:

  • a detailed study progress overview 
  • an advise from the study advisor

 Check the meeting schedule of the MEX for the deadline for submitting your request.
