What can I use the Study Board for?
You may apply to the Study Board for dispensation if exceptional circumstances keep you from living up to the regulations of your programme. You may also apply for credits if, for instance, you want to do a course under another faculty or at another university.
You may help improve your programme
Furthermore, the Study Board also deals with proposed changes to your programme, appeals and continuously optimizing your programme. If you have suggestions for changes to your programme, you may send them to the Study Board. In other words, the Study Board is a democratic body, where you as a student may have a say and have influence on the future of your programme.
The Study Board is obliged to observe professional secrecy!
If you need to apply for dispensation, you may have very personal reasons for doing so. You may have to explain these to the Study Board because they need a valid reason to grant you dispensation (exemption). Naturally, you may find it uncomfortable having to mention your private conditions, but you should know that the Study Board members must observe professional secrecy.
Can I become a member of the Study Board?
You may become a member of the Study Board. Elections are held once a year. In October – before the elections in November – you’ll receive an e-mail explaining how to run for the election. If you are elected, you’ll be serving on the Study Board for one year from 1 January to 31 December.
