Transitory arrangements bachelor ES

English spoken Bachelor track European Studies 2014-2015

Transitory arrangements

From the academic year 2013-2014 on the bachelor track European Studies (part of the bachelor programme Public Administration) will be gradually replaced by the new (and in larger modules of 15 EC organized) bachelor programme European Public Administration (EPA).

This has the following consequences for the different years of the ES-programme:

-

B1 courses have been offered for the last time in the academic year 2012-2013, in the academic year 2013-2014 there have been re-exams for these courses for the last time.

-

B2 courses have been offered for the last time in the academic year 2013-2014, in the academic year 2014-2015 there will be only re-exams for these courses.

-

B3 courses will be offered for the last time in the academic year 2014-2015, in the academic year 2015-2016 there will be only re-exams for these courses.

General remarks:

- The re-exams (two in every academic year for written re-exams, one for practical assignments) will be held in the same quarters as the original exams, so in the quarter the course was originally scheduled and in the next quarter.

- If enough students participate in re-exams teachers may organize lectures, tutorials or other meetings to prepare the students for the re-exams.

- Students are strongly advised to do the exams and-the re-exams in the academic years in which they are still offered. For students that still miss courses afterwards, other – preferably tailor-made - solutions will be sought .

Consequences for the re-exams for B2 courses in the academic year 2014-2015:

For three courses written re-exams will be scheduled in the Exam Roster:

·

Concept and Observation (20110097)

·

European legal governance (194125040)

·

Evaluating democratic governance in Europe (201100080)

For the other nine courses are practical assignments. Students have to contact the teacher of the course themselves before the start of the quarter the course was originally scheduled. The courses are:

·

·
