Education academic year 2022-2023

We are entering a new academic year. An academic year, in which the basic principle will be that education and exams will take place on our campus where we meet each other in person. In our opinion, physical proximity among the university community, student participation and interaction are important components of academic education. Therefore, we expect our students to attend on-campus educational activities.

In addition to on-campus educational activities, there will be an increase in the use of online forms of education. Because the experiences with online education have taught us a lot, we are in fact moving towards a situation of blended learning. This means that for each part of the program we will look at which form of education fits best and aim for a good blend of on-campus education and online teaching formats. It depends on the program if, and to what extent, online teaching formats will be used. What this means for the way in which your courses will be taught, will be communicated via our digital learning environment Canvas.


Exceptions apply for students of the programs LLB Global Law, LLM Law and Technology, LLM International Business Law and LLM International Business Taxation. Students starting one of these study programs in September 2022 will be able to opt for either on campus or online education for the academic year 2022/2023. If you have applied for one of these study programs you will receive more information about the online and on-campus option after you have been (conditionally) admitted.
