Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences believes it is important for students to study abroad for a semester without falling behind. With regard to taking exams remotely, you are referred to article 5.7 of the Education and Examination Regulations Bachelor 2021-2022 (EER). The EER specifies the rules regarding the remote exam (distance exam).
In accordance with these rules, there must first be a specific reason to be eligible for such a facility. This includes special circumstances and/or overlap in the study schedule due to regular education obligations at Tilburg University and the exchange destination.
Also, all previous regular exam opportunities for the course in question must have been taken, except in special circumstances. In addition, the exam at the host institution should take place simultaneously with the exam at Tilburg University and the host institution should support the decision and facilitate the exam. It is possible to submit a request for this through the Examination Board. The Examination Board decides whether to grant the request. A course that has already been completed is not eligible for a distance exam.
