Education and Examination Regulations (EER) Social and Behavioral Sciences

The Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences is required to establish an Education and Examination Regulations (EER) for their programs. This contains the main points of the education and examinations, and is therefore the basic document for students and teachers. The regulations of recent years can be found in the archive.

Rules and Guidelines

These Rules and Guidelines 2023-2024 are applicable to the preliminary examinations and examinations of all programs of the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences (TSB).

These Rules and Guidelines entered into force on September 1, 2023 and were laid down by the Examination Boards of TSB on June 27, 2023.

In addition, separate rules have been established for theses and internships of the Psychology programs, which can be found in the 'Provisions concerning the assessment of theses' and the document 'Provisions concerning the assessment of internships' respectively. These documents are part of the rules and guidelines.

Education and Examination Regulations (EER)

The School is obligated to provide a Education and Examination Regulation (EER) for all programs. The EER discusses the key topics regarding the education and examination within these programs and therefore is the principle document for both students and lecturers.

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 Examination Board. However, this does not alter the spirit of the EERs or the Rules and Regulations.
