Programme changes and transitional measures

Every academic year, programme changes can occur. On this page the complete overview for academic year 2020-2021 with all programme changes per programme and the corresponding transitional measures can be found.

General programme changes

For some programmes there will be changes in the elective course list. These changes will not be discussed here. For all changes in the elective course list the same transitional measure applies: students who obtained a credit for an elective course in academic year 2020-2021 (or before) which is no longer on the elective course list in academic year 2021-2022, maintain the obtained credit, exam result and ECTS-credits. 

 

For some programmes there will be changes with regards to the semester. This means that courses which were programmed in the 1st semester in academic year 2020-2021, can be programmed in the 2nd semester in academic year 2021-2022 or vice-versa. These changes will not be discussed here because there are no transitional measures for changes regarding the semester. Students who subscribe for a course have to follow it in the semester in which it is programmed in academic year 2021-2022. The Course Catalogue can be consulted to see in which semester a course is programmed.

 

Some transitional measures offer students the possibility to re-enrol in the old version of a programme. However, students are not obligated to re-enrol in this old version. They can also choose to re-enrol in the new version of the programme but they have to be aware that this means they are subject to the regulations of this new version.
