Examination Board Humanities and Digital Sciences

The Board of Examiners is in charge of administering the final examination and determining the result. It is also in charge of the implementation of the rules and regulations drawn up by the Faculty. The rules and regulations are laid down each year in the Course and Assessment Regulations (Dutch: Onderwijs- en Examenreglement (OER)).

The Board of Examiners lays down the rules to promote examinations being conducted properly, and takes appropriate measures if these rules do not suffice or are not complied with. The Board can give guidelines and directives with regard to the assessment (of the examination) of a student.

The Board of Examiners is also the body that deals with requests regarding individual students’ study programs. These requests can pertain to the following:

  • Request for electives
  • Requests for a personal Minor or a change of Minor
  • Request for admission to the graduation phase
  • Request for admission to the (Pre-)Master’s program
  • Change of study programs
  • Request for exemptions
  • Request for an one-time extra examination opportunity

The Board of Examiners is responsible for the admission of prospective students to the Bachelor’s and Master’s programs. Finally, the Board of Examiners is also responsible for administering the colloquium doctum (university entrance examination for those not qualifying on the basis of previous education).


Requests can be submitted via email: Please state your student number (SNR).
The secretariat of the Examination Board can be found in the Dante building, room D 115.

It may happen that, in the information that you receive on the interim examinations or that you read on the website concerning registration for exams, different terms are used for the same things or arrangements referred to in the EERs or the Rules and Regulations of the Examining Board. However, this does not alter the spirit of the EERs or the Rules and Regulations.
