Academic regulations 

When you are enrolled on a degree programme at the university, you belong under a specific set of academic regulations. 

Your academic regulations are your "body of law". They can tell you which rules apply to you while you are a student. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the academic regulations that apply to you. 

Usually, the academic regulations include descriptions of: 

  • the subject areas and objectives of the study programme. 

  • the competences students will acquire during their studies. 

  • the structure of the degree programme 

  • the specific subjects and courses. 

  • examination terms.
