1 Education and Examination Regulations Royal Academy of Art academic year 7. Education and Examination Regulations This part of the Education and Examination Regulations specifies the rules and provisions that apply to the education at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) as a whole, in conformity with art a u, of the Higher Education and Scientific Research Act (Wet op het Hoger onderwijs en Wetenschappelijk onderzoek (WHW)). It has been approved by the Board of Governors of the University of the Arts, The Hague, formerly the School of Visual Arts, Music and Dance. These regulations came into force on 1 September 1998, and they were modified in part by the Board of Governors (most recently in July 2015) for all programmes of study at the Royal Academy of Art. The general description of the education provided at the Academy and the concise description of the curriculum for the programmes in this Study Guide are an integral part of these regulations. These regulations apply to all cohorts of students of the programmes and courses referred to, and to the academic year. By way of exception to the above, if the Education and Examination Regulations have not been completed as of 1 September 2015, the Education and Examination Regulations shall remain in force until the Education and Examination Regulations take effect. 1

4 General Article 1 Applicability of the regulations 1 These regulations apply to the education and examinations of the following programmes and courses of study: Fine Art Bachelor's programme (CROHO 39110), with the ArtScience and Fine Arts courses; Design Bachelor's programme (CROHO 39111), comprising Photography, Graphic Design, Interior Architecture and Furniture Design, Textiles and Fashion, and Interactive/Media/Design courses; Interior Architecture Master's programme (CROHO 49238); Type and Media Master's programme (CROHO 49106). Article 2 Definitions Academic year The period beginning on 1 September and terminating on 31 August of the subsequent calendar year: An academic year has two semesters. Academy for Creative and Performing Arts This is a collaborative partnership between the University of the Arts, The Hague and the University of Leiden. Admissions committee A committee established by the institution s management, represented by the faculty director, to bear responsibility for assessing the attitude and suitability of prospective students for specific study programmes (WHW art. 7.26a). Admissions review A review of the suitability of prospective students. Assessing Assessing is an accepted term in higher art education that is equivalent to 'administering examinations' in regular higher education. (see WHW art. 7.10, para. 1). Assessment A term in art education that is equivalent to the terms 'interim examination' and 'examination' in WHW art. 7.3, para. 3 and art. 7.10, para. 1. Assessments involve an investigation into the knowledge, insights and skills of the examinee, as well as the evaluation of the results of that investigation. We make the following distinctions: in the Bachelor's programmes: propaedeutic (first- year) phase assessment following semester 2; semester assessment (comprising individual reviews for the separate study components and a collective assessment, or an integrated assessment where these are combined); final assessment. 1 The Master's degree programmes Artistic Research and ArtScience are also included in the range of programmes at the KABK. These two form a course within the Music Master's programme of the University of the Arts in The Hague and fall under the Education and Examination Regulations applicable to that programme. 4

5 Assessment committee Committees of examiners (or assessment committees) are established for the purpose of preparing and/or implementing examinations and parts of examinations, as referred to in WHW art. 7.12c, para. 1. The examiners are responsible for setting and assessing tests and examinations. Assessment committees are established for the propaedeutic and main phases of the Bachelor's programmes and for the Master's programmes, and are responsible for collective assessments. For the Bachelor s programmes, the Academy establishes assessment committees for the propaedeutic assessment, the assessments in the subject study phase and the final assessment. For the Master s programme, assessment committees are established for the semester assessments and for the final examination. These assessment committees have different powers, depending on their tasks. Articles 18, 19 and 21 of these regulations specify the composition of the assessment committees. Bachelor's degree Degree that can be earned after completing a four- year higher professional education (HBO) programme (or after completing a three- year university level (WO) programme). An HBO Bachelor's programme usually lasts four years, each worth a possible 60 ECTS. Board of Appeals for Examinations The Board of Appeals, as referred to in WHW art. 7.60, can be reached through the Central Office of the University of the Arts. Board of Governors The Board of Governors of the University of the Arts, The Hague is the competent authority, bearing responsibility for the education, organisation and management of the institution. Course The Fine Art and Design programmes each have different courses that train students for a specific profession. Block/Period This is half of a semester, with a maximum of four blocks/periods per academic year. Coach A student counsellor for students in the main phase of study, possibly with responsibility for coaching the Individual Study Track (IST). Committee of Examiners See: assessment committee. Competence Competence is the integral whole of knowledge, skills, attitudes and other personal qualities that individuals possess, which enable them to carry out tasks in an adequate way, to find solutions and to put them into effect in practising their profession. 5

6 Component of a study programme A component of a study programme is equivalent to that which is referred to in WHW art. 7.3 as a unit of study. It is a part of the educational programme, which concludes with an assessment. Degree programme As referred to in WHW art. 7.3, a degree programme is a cohesive whole of educational units designed to achieve clearly defined objectives with regard to the knowledge, insight and skills that a person completing the programme is required to possess. Each degree programme concludes with an examination. The programmes at the Academy include several study programmes. EC/Credits A measure of the hours of study: One European Credit is equal to a study load of 28 hours (self- study and lectures). The study load of a Bachelor's degree HBO programme amounts to 240 study credits: 60 in the propaedeutic phase and 180 in the main phase. The study load of the Interior Architecture Master's programme is 120 credits. The study load of the Type and Media Master's programme is 60 credits ECTS European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System: the European system for exchanging and accumulating credits. Education and Examination Regulations The Education and Examination Regulations consist of two parts: One part provides a general description of the teaching at the Academy and a concise description of the curriculum of the courses at the Academy and the Interfaculty ArtScience; the other part includes the rules and provisions. Both of these parts are included in the Study Guide. Final assessment / final examination The final assessment of a programme, based on the final examination work usually referred to as "final examination" in common parlance. Examination A review of the candidate s knowledge, insights and skills and the evaluation of the outcomes of this review. At the Royal Academy of Art, the term assessment is commonly used to refer to examinations. Examination Board For the purpose of administering, organising and coordinating examinations, interim examinations and assessments, the Board of Governors of the institute has established an Examination Board for each programme or group of programmes offered by the institute in accordance with WHW art At least one member of this board must be a lecturer of the (group of) programme(s) in question and at least one member must come from outside the (group of) programme(s). 6

7 The Examination Board for Fine Art and Design is responsible for the examination procedures. The Examination Board safeguards the quality of the interim and final examinations (WHW art b, para. 1, sub a); can provide invigilators with guidelines and instructions concerning the assessment and determination of the examination result (WHW art b, para. 1, sub b); applies exceptional regulations, including those governing exemptions, and allows individual exceptions to the regulations in certain cases (WHW art. 7.12b, para. 1, sub d); is empowered to take measures in the event that fraud is committed by a student (WHW art. 7.12b, para. 2); appoints the invigilators, including the chair of a committee of invigilators (WHW art. 7.12c); awards the certificate once the student has taken the required examinations and once the Board of Governors has determined that the procedural requirements for awarding the certificate have been met (WHW art. 7.11). Examiner A member of the Committee of Examiners, as referred to in WHW art. 7.12c: Individuals who teach within the relevant degree programme may be designated as examiners, as may experts from outside the programme. External students Students enrolled at the University for the sole purpose of participating in the propaedeutic or final examination, or parts thereof. Faculty Organisational unit: The University of the Arts, The Hague comprises two faculties: the Royal Conservatoire and the Royal Academy of Art. Additional units include the Interfaculty ArtScience and the Interfaculty School for Young Talent. Head Official in charge of an educational unit or a study programme at the Academy. Individual Study Track In the main phase of the Bachelor's programmes (and also in the ArtScience Master's programme), study load is reserved for a study component with individually determined contents approved by the department. This is known as the Individual Study Track (IST). This track allows students to realise their own ambitions and to focus on their own interests. IST credits from full- time internships and/or the final examination can be integrated into the internship/final examination assessment in a manner to be approved by the Head of the department of the course. Interfaculty An Interfaculty is a partnership between the Conservatoire and the Academy. ArtScience and the School for Young Talent are Interfaculties. The ArtScience Bachelor's programme provided by the ArtScience Interfaculty falls under the Fine Art Bachelor's programme in the Central Registry of Higher Education Programmes (CROHO). The ArtScience Master's programme falls under the Music Master's programme in CROHO. 7

8 Interim examination An investigation (written, oral or other) into the knowledge, insights and the skills of the student, as well as the assessment of the results of that investigation. An interim examination is usually referred to as an 'assessment' in common parlance at the Academy. Main (subject) phase The part of the Bachelor s programme that follows the propaedeutic phase of the programme and is concluded with its final examination. Major- minor system Within the framework of the IST and with the prior approval of the department, students of the Bachelor s programmes may take a minor offered by the other higher education institutes within the applicable major- minor system. Students of the University of the Arts in The Hague may qualify for a minor at Leiden University after completing the propaedeutic phase. Conversely, Leiden University students can take a minor at one of the University's faculties after being admitted there. Master s programme A one- year or two- year advanced degree programme (as a rule, subsequent to the completion of a Bachelor s programme) at an institution of higher professional education or a university. Mentor A counsellor who assists propaedeutic students in a bachelor programme with regard to progress in their studies. Participation Council The Participation Council, as referred to in WHW art : The council comprises elected representatives from various ranks within the institution: students, teaching staff from each faculty and general support and educational support staff. The University has a central council and two faculty councils, one for the Academy and one for the Conservatoire. Practical exercises Carrying out assignments or creating designs, conducting research assignments, completing internships or participating in excursions and other necessary educational activities, with the goal of achieving the required skills. Propaedeutic assessment/propaedeutic examination The examination that concludes the propaedeutic phase of a bachelor programme: The examination takes the form of a propaedeutic assessment aimed at determining whether the student meets the requirements specified for the propaedeutic phase. Recommendation A distinction is made between: The propaedeutic recommendation: At the end of the propaedeutic or first year of a bachelor degree programme, a recommendation is made with regard to the continuation of the course of study. This recommendation is binding, and it may be negative. A 8

9 negative binding recommendation means that the student will not be admitted to the main part of the course in question and that the student s enrolment for that course will be terminated in conformity with WHW art. 7.8.b. Interim propaedeutic recommendation: After the first semester in Year 1 for full- time students and after the second semester for part- time students under the previous arrangements, a provisional non- binding recommendation is made. This provisional recommendation will be issued at a date that gives any student facing a negative binding recommendation a reasonable amount of time to substantially improve his/her study results. Furthermore, the student will be notified of this term. Green light recommendation: Following the penultimate semester of the programme, both in bachelor and master programmes a recommendation will be issued regarding participation in the final examination assessment if all prior study components have been successfully completed, and if there is confidence in the ability of the student to obtain a satisfactory result for the final examination work based on the questions and organisation. This recommendation will be binding in cases described in article 16 of these regulations. Semester Each academic year has two semesters. A semester comprises blocks or periods. Semester assessment A formal assessment conducted at the conclusion of each semester: This assessment is conducted by an assessment committee. Specialisation A cohesive whole of educational units within a study programme, focusing on a specific domain within the visual arts and/or design, particularly in the Bachelor s programmes. Student A person who is enrolled at the University of the Arts, The Hague (full- time or part- time) to pursue a degree programme. Student counsellor A confidential advisor who, if necessary and as a supplement to the mentor, coach or lecturer, provides advice and information to students with regard to matters relating to their studies: The student counsellor also helps students with personal problems of a material and immaterial nature, refers them elsewhere or acts as intermediary. Study load All supervised and unsupervised study activities: practical exercises, excursions, internships, interviews, practical and theory classes, lectures, workshops and independent study within and outside the Academy; also referred to as study hours, and expressed in credits. The Royal Academy of Art The Fine Arts and Design Faculty of the University of the Arts, The Hague. The Royal Conservatoire The Music and Dance faculty of the University of the Arts, The Hague. 9

10 The University of the Arts, The Hague On 1 January 1990, the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire merged to form the School of Visual Arts, Music and Dance. On 8 July 2010, the name of the institution was changed to the University of the Arts, The Hague. The Board of Governors is responsible for the daily operations of the University. WHW - Higher Education and Scientific Research Act The Act on Higher Education and Scientific Research, Bulletin of Acts, Orders and Decrees 593, 1992; Implementing Decree 2008 Text, as in force on 1 July WSF Act on Student Grants and Loans, Student Finance. Article 3 Degree programmes offered Bachelor s programmes Each Bachelor s study programme has its own propaedeutic phase. Students who pass the propaedeutic phase are entitled to advance to the main phase of their chosen study programmes. a. Fine Arts with specialisations Fine Arts, full- time and part- time; ArtScience, full- time, provided by the Interfaculty ArtScience. b. Design Graphic Design, full- time and part- time; Photography, full- time and part- time; Interactive/Media/Design, full- time; Interior Architecture and Furniture Design, full- time and part- time; Textile and Fashion, full- time. Master's programmes and postgraduate programmes The Academy has four postgraduate programmes. Type & Media Master's programme Interior Architecture Master's programme ArtScience Master's programme Artistic Research Master's programme The latter two programmes are the result of collaboration between the Academy and the Conservatoire, and fall under the Education and Examination Regulations of the Music Master's programme of the University of the Arts. Admission 10

11 Article 4 Admissions 1. Students are admitted if they meet the requirements relating to previous education, as specified in WHW art. 7.24, or if they are exempt from those requirements on the basis of WHW art In addition to the requirements specified in the first paragraph, the students must meet additional requirements in accordance with WHW art. 7.26a. 3. In order to determine whether a candidate meets the additional requirements specified in the second paragraph, the Board of Governors establishes an admissions committee that provides the board with a recommendation concerning the admissibility of the candidate (based on the specified requirements). 4. The Board of Governors establishes the Admissions Regulations, which contain at least the composition, powers and responsibilities of the committee specified in the third paragraph, as well as the procedures and criteria adopted by that committee. Duration and structure of the programmes Article 5 Duration of the programmes The Fine Art and Design Bachelor's programmes amount to 240 ECTS and last four academic years. The Type & Media Master's programme amounts to 60 ECTS and lasts one academic year. The Interior Architecture Master's programme amounts to 120 ECTS and lasts two academic years. Article 6 Propaedeutic phase (WHW art.7.8) Each Bachelor s study programme at the Academy has its own propaedeutic phase, which corresponds to the main phase of that specific study programme, including the associated specialisations. The propaedeutic phase counts for 60 EC and takes one year of study. The phase concludes with the propaedeutic examination, which takes the form of an assessment. The study components in the propaedeutic phase constitute a cohesive foundation for the main phase. The propaedeutic phase is arranged in such a way that students obtain insight into the content of the study programme and the future profession, with the possibility of referral and/or selection at the end of this phase. The curriculum of the propaedeutic phase is described in the study guide. In the Master s programmes, no distinction is made between the propaedeutic phase and the main phase. Article 7 Admission to the main phase of the Bachelor's programmes 1. Students who have successfully completed the propaedeutic phase of a Bachelor's programme can continue their studies in the main phase of the course in question. 2. A student who has gone through the propaedeutic phase of a course but has not yet passed the propaedeutic examination may only participate in the main phase if the propaedeutic assessment committee considers the student's chances of completing the 11

12 propaedeutic phase in the second academic year are good, and that repeating the first year would not be worthwhile. 3. In consultation with the Head of the department of the relevant course, a student may be allowed to continue his/her studies in a different course within the Academy. The study components of the 'new' course that need to be completed, as well as the amount and type of credits earned in the 'old' course that can be transferred to the 'new' one, will be determined in each case. 4. On the basis of a recommendation from the admissions committee, the Board of Governors can decide to directly admit a student to the main phase of a course. In such cases, the Examination Board will assess the exemptions from the study components of the propaedeutic phase of the relevant course as soon as possible 2 after the start of the first year following enrolment in accordance with article 23 of these regulations. Article 8 Main phase of the Bachelor's programmes The main phase of the Bachelor's programmes amounts to 180 ECTS and lasts three academic years. The goal of the main phase is to prepare students for professional practice in the field of fine arts and design. The curriculum of the main phase is described in the study guide and on the Academy's website. Article 9 Structure of the Master's programmes No distinction is made in the Master's programmes between the propaedeutic phase and the main phase. The one- year Master's programmes conclude with an examination (a semester assessment also takes place after the first semester). In the two- year Master's programmes, a semester assessment takes place after the first academic year to determine whether the student will be admitted to the second year, and the second academic year concludes with the final examination (the usual semester assessments also take place after the first and third semesters). Assessments Introduction: The examination and assessment system continuously focuses on supporting students' development, in line with their personal interests and needs, with the goal of enabling them to eventually attain the final qualifications. For the propaedeutic phase, the goal is to effectively orientate students within the course of study and, if necessary, to ensure an adequate selection and referral. The assessments reflect (professional) practice in the field in which we provide education and in which evaluation largely depends on discourse between creators, peers, critics and the public. In our assessments, we therefore seek a balance between individual and collective judgements, and emphasise the connection between the different study components, which should result in integral development. Furthermore, our assessments are more formative than summative (with the exception of the propaedeutic and final examinations). We make a distinction between individual reviews (of separate study components) and collective assessments. These two have been combined to form integrated assessments in a 2 For the academic year , this means this assessment by the Examination Board is usually taken within four weeks. 12

13 number of courses, sometimes in the later years of the programmes. The green light assessment is a special type of collective assessment. Article 10 Semester assessment Every semester concludes with a semester assessment consisting of a collective assessment preceded by or integrated with individual reviews (see articles 11 and 12). In the last semester of the propaedeutic phase of the Bachelor's programmes this is known as the 'propaedeutic assessment'. In the last semester of the Master's programmes and the main phase of the Bachelor's programmes, it is called the 'final assessment'. Article 11 Individual reviews 1. A semester consists of one or more study components. For each study component, an individual review takes place in which the student's development and results for the relevant study component are discussed on the basis of the learning objectives of that component. 2. The individual review is conducted by the lecturer(s)/invigilator(s) responsible for that study component. 3. The individual review is formative and provides students with substantive and qualitative feedback on their progress and results, as well as with instructions and suggestions for their further development during the course of study. 4. The result of the individual review is recorded in writing and communicated to the student. 5. The individual reviews normally take place one or two weeks prior to the scheduled collective assessments, unless integral assessments take place in the relevant course and academic year. If the study component is not completed at the end of the semester, the lecturer will communicate the date and time of the individual reviews in a timely manner. 6. The individual review does not result in an evaluation (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) or a grade. Whether or not a study component has been completed satisfactorily is determined during the collective assessment based on the student's overall development. 7. An exception to paragraph 6 above is that the individual reviews in the ArtScience course of study, both the Bachelor's and the Master's programmes, do result in an evaluation because the curriculum is organised differently. Article 12 Collective assessments 1. The semester assessment committee performs an assessment at the end of each semester, known as the collective assessment. 2. The collective assessment involves an investigation into the extent to which the student meets the criteria established in advance and the determination of the assessment result of that investigation. The criteria are described per academic year and course of study. 13

14 3. In the collective assessment, the student's work from the last semester is assessed, and his/her individual reviews and results for each separate study component are discussed and weighed. Eventually, the semester assessment committee reaches a final, collective and integral evaluation based on the competencies formulated for the relevant course and academic year. 4. The collective assessment concerns all of the study components in the semester to be assessed, including the IST and/or any study components completed at other institutes. The assessment is performed on the basis of the results of practical and/or theoretical work in those study components. 5. An exception to paragraph 4 above is that the collective assessments in the ArtScience course of study, both the Bachelor's and the Master's programmes, result in an evaluation of the student's semester project because the curriculum is organised differently. 6. Students are given the opportunity to comment on their work presented at the assessments and on their development. 7. The assessment committee assesses the student's work and determines the assessment results after consultation. 8. The collective assessment concludes with a meeting of the assessment committee, in which the assessment results are formulated and registered. If necessary, the committee provides a recommendation on the student's continuation of studies or selection of specialisation. 9. The assessment committee gives a positive assessment if the requirements established in advance have been met. 10. For students who receive a result of 'unsatisfactory', the assessment committee determines how they can retake the components or compensate for that result, and when and how this will be assessed. 11. At the end of the academic year, the assessment committee determines whether the student will be admitted to the next academic year. 12. The chair of the assessment committee determines how many credits the student has earned on the basis of his/her assessment results. If, for any reason, the number of credits earned is still uncertain, the student is informed about the reasons for this and the term within which he will get further notice. Article 13 Determining the result and awarding credits 1. Assessment results can be expressed in grades (from 1 to 10, with a maximum of one decimal), on a qualitative assessment scale (unsatisfactory/borderline/satisfactory/good), or on a two- point scale (unsatisfactory/satisfactory). 2. For each study component, students are notified of the applicable scale both before and during the assessments. 3. The following applies to graded results: result of 6.0 or higher are satisfactory; results below 6.0 are unsatisfactory. 14

15 4. During the collective assessment, the semester assessment committee determines the result of each study component and the number of credits earned. In addition to the evaluation of the individual lecturer(s) concerning that component, the assessment based on the student's total development also plays a role. The committee also determines whether, when and how the student can retake specific components or complete additional assignments. Finally, at the end of the academic year, the semester assessment committee determines whether or not the student will be admitted to the next academic year. 5. For clusters of study components that are demonstrably and strongly related in terms of content, the student's result can be determined at cluster level instead of at the level of the separate study components. In such cases, students are notified in advance which study components make up the cluster and how the result of each component mutually influences the result at cluster level. 6. Results and credits obtained within the framework of an exchange at a different institute either in the Netherlands or abroad, and formally recognised in the exchange agreement (learning agreement and any subsequently agreed changes to that agreement), are determined in the collective assessment in the relevant semester. A statement concerning these credits from the partner institute in question (transcript of records) will serve as proof. Article 14 Propaedeutic phase assessment/regulations (WHW art. 7.8; only applies to Bachelor s programmes) 1. The propaedeutic phase of a Bachelor s programme concludes with a propaedeutic examination, in the form of the propaedeutic assessment. 2. The propaedeutic assessment is conducted by an assessment committee for propaedeutic examinations. 3. The Academy has an assessment committee for the propaedeutic phase in each Bachelor s programme, comprising the Head of the department and supervising lecturers. 4. The assessment committee determines the extent to which the candidate has met the specified criteria according to previously established general and subject- related criteria, procedures and rules. The committee also determines the assessment result for this review. 5. Students pass the propaedeutic examination by passing collective assessments of the propaedeutic phase and completing all individual study components successfully. 6. The propaedeutic assessment concludes with a meeting of the assessment committee, in which the result is decided and recorded. 7. The committee may advise the faculty director to issue a binding negative recommendation on the continuation of the study or choice of specialisation. See Article 15 of these regulations. 8. Students passing the propaedeutic assessment receive a certificate is indicating that they have passed the assessment and that 60 EC credits have been obtained. 9. Full- time students and part- time students under the current arrangements are required to complete the propaedeutic phase within two years of enrollment. Artikel 15 Regulations concerning the recommendation on continuation of studies and rejection (WHW art. 7.8b; bachelor s programmes only) At the end of the propaedeutic phase of the Bachelor s programmes, all students at the Academy, both full- time and part- time, receive recommendations on the continuation of their course of studies, within the programme or elsewhere. A student who has not passed 15

16 the propaedeutic assessment and whom the Academy deems unsuitable for the main phase of the study programme (with due consideration for personal circumstances) may receive a recommendation containing a binding rejection (i.e. a binding negative recommendation). Candidates receive signed, written notification of such recommendations from one of the faculty directors (or a deputy). The notification of the binding negative recommendation refers to the procedures that students must pursue if they wish to file objections or appeals as mentioned in article 31. The recommendation takes one of the following forms: Positive recommendation: Based on the results of the study, the Academy expects that the student will be able to pursue the study successfully and thereby promotes the student to the main phase of the study programme in question. Binding negative recommendation: This recommendation means that the student will not be allowed to continue the course of study and is not eligible to enrol in the same study programme at the Academy again. The binding nature applies to both the full- time and part- time variants of the programme. Students receive this recommendation if the assessment committee concludes that they will not be able to complete the programme successfully, based on the results of their assessments. Exceptional recommendations allowing the possibility of re- taking the propaedeutic assessment (or parts thereof): This recommendation may be issued for students who show talent but whose study results fail to reflect this sufficiently, if the assessment committee expects that repeating the propaedeutic phase (or parts thereof) would provide them with a sufficient foundation for successfully pursuing the remainder of the programme, notwithstanding the provisions of 14, para. 9. In the recommendation, the assessment committee states its reasoning for this expectation. An exceptional recommendation is possible on the grounds of extenuating personal circumstances, as listed below, insofar as the assessment committee deems that they have impeded the student from obtaining satisfactory results. The following are considered extenuating circumstances: demonstrable and long- term illness of the student; serious personal circumstances of the student; pregnancy of the student; membership on the Participation Council; membership on the board of a foundation that, by virtue of its charter, operates student amenities, as referred to in the WHW; membership on the board of a sizeable student organisation or a comparable organisation that primarily serves the interests of the arts in society and that organises activities to this end; circumstances other than those listed above for which the assessment committee deems that a binding negative recommendation would result in serious unfairness. Students should inform their mentors about any extenuating circumstances as soon as possible. If students do not regard their mentors as suitable for this purpose, they may contact the student dean, who will inform the assessment committee of the circumstances in writing. The information may serve no other purpose than the study recommendation, and it is made available only to the assessment committee, which adds it to the student s file separately, as does the mentor. 16

17 A recommendation rejecting further study can be made only if the following criteria have been met: The criteria and the procedure for the study recommendation and the possibility of rejection are communicated clearly in a timely manner. The student's mentor in the propaedeutic phase discusses the results with him/her in (at least) one individual meeting. During this meeting (or these meetings), the student's study results are made available to him/her. In addition to these results, any special personal circumstances are discussed. Students receive an interim recommendation at a date that gives them a reasonable period of time in which to substantially improve their study results. Students will also be notified of this period. The mentor records the result of these meetings and includes it in the student's file. Any special circumstances are set down in a separate report that is kept in the student's file. The mentor keeps the assessment committee informed of such circumstances in writing. A negative binding recommendation can be issued so long as the student has not yet passed the propaedeutic examination. It can therefore also be issued during the second year of enrolment in the propaedeutic phase. Students who fail to complete the propaedeutic phase by the end of the second year of enrolment automatically receive a negative binding recommendation, unless the Examination Board decides otherwise on the advice of the relevant assessment committee. Article 16 Green light assessment 1. Following the penultimate semester and the corresponding semester assessment, a separate green light assessment takes place. 2. The green light assessment is performed by (a majority of the members of) the final assessment committee and results in a recommendation as to the student's participation in the final examination assessment (hereinafter referred to as 'the examination' in this article) based on the questions and plans presented by the student for this purpose. 3. Students are not usually permitted to participate in the green light assessment for the Bachelor's programmes if they have not yet earned 180 credits by the start of that assessment. The assessment committee can decide to admit the student to the green light assessment anyway if it believes that the student's lack of progress would not necessarily prevent him/her from passing the final examination. Numerical criteria for participation in the green light assessment do not apply to students of the Master's programmes. In the Master Interior Architecture, students are permitted to participate in the green light assessment if they have successfully completed the first year of the programme and received a positive assessment after the third semester. 4. The green light assessment takes place four weeks prior to the scheduled final examination at the latest. 5. A positive recommendation (green light) is given if, based on the student s objectives and approach for the final examination, the assessment committee is confident that the student will pass the final examination. If there is some doubt over the student's ability to 17

18 successfully complete the examination, an orange light recommendation is given. A red light recommendation is given where the committee lacks sufficient confidence. 6. The recommendation is only binding if it is a red light recommendation AND if it concerns a Bachelor's degree AND if the student has not yet earned 210 credits. In such cases, the student is not permitted to participate in the final examination. In the Master of Interior Architecture, the recommendation is only binding in case the student does not show up at the assessment. Explanation: For the Bachelor's programmes, the above- mentioned provisions mean that: a student with less than 180 credits may only participate in the green light assessment in exceptional cases (to be determined by the assessment committee); In these cases, a red light recommendation will be binding. a student with credits may participate in the green light assessment, but a red light recommendation will be binding; a student with more than 210 credits cannot receive a binding red light recommendation. 7. Notwithstanding the period stated in paragraph 4 above, the assessment committee can decide to offer the student the opportunity to retake or postpone the green light assessment if the result would initially be an orange or red light recommendation. In such cases, the assessment committee determines the period in which the assessment or resit examination will take place. Article 17 Sequence of the assessments 1. Students must pass the collective assessment in the previous semester before continuing their studies in the programme. 2. Students may be allowed to continue their studies if it is anticipated that they can pass the next collective assessment. Article 24 of these regulations will then apply. 3. In order to be allowed to start the last semester of the study programme, students must have successfully completed all previous assessments and earned the accompanying credits. A student who has not yet earned all the previous credits but who the semester assessment committee believes is capable of catching up within the current academic year can be admitted to the last semester. The decision as to whether or not the student will be admitted is made by the semester assessment committee. Article 18 The assessment committees 1. The Academy establishes assessment committees for the semester assessments and the final assessment of each course. In the Bachelor s programmes, the propaedeutic assessment is the de facto semester assessment at the end of the propaedeutic phase. The assessment committees have different powers, depending on their tasks. A description of the committees and their powers follows below. 2. The composition and working method of the semester assessment committees are set down in articles 19 and 20 of these regulations. 3. The final assessment is performed by the final assessment committee. The composition and working method of the final assessment committees are set down in articles 21 and 22 of these regulations. 18

19 Article 19 Semester assessments of the assessment committees 1. The Academy establishes an assessment committee for each course and academic year; each committee operates under the responsibility of the Examination Board and consists of a Head of the department and supporting lecturers. 2. The Head of the department of the course chairs the assessment committee, the mentor/coach or the coordinator serves as secretary, and lecturers who teach the study components of the course form the other members. (delete the from the text) 3. The chair determines whether the students to be assessed can attend the discussion about the outcomes of the assessment. 4. The assessment committee for the propaedeutic year of a course functions as the propaedeutic assessment committee. This committee formulates a recommendation on the continuation of the studies and possibly on the continuation of the studies in a particular course on the basis of the results of that assessment. See Article 20 of these regulations. Article 20 Regulations for the semester and propaedeutic assessment committees 1. The chair of the assessment committee is responsible for the scheduling, organisation and coordination of the presentation of the work to be assessed. For this presentation, each study component should be presented in such a way that it provides a good impression of the performance of the student to be assessed. 2. Voting: The committee may take a vote, if the committee is unable to agree on the outcome of the assessment otherwise. The committee s decision is based on a majority vote. In case of a tie, the chair casts the deciding vote. 3. Postponed assessment at the end of the first semester of the academic year: in the event that the work submitted by a student is incomplete, the chair can establish a period in which an assessment will take place and determine the procedure to be followed. 4. Postponed assessment at the end of the second semester of the academic year: if an unsatisfactory result is obtained at the end of an academic year and the committee believes the student can continue his/her studies after obtaining a satisfactory result, the committee can decide to repeat the assessment again after a particular period. 5. Any assessment that is postponed in accordance with paragraph 3 or 4 must take place at the end of the next semester at the latest. 6. Determining the number of EC s obtained: The chair of the assessment committee determines the number of EC s obtained. 7. Recording the results of the assessment: The chair of the assessment committee is responsible for ensuring the maintenance of a record of the study results. The chair dates and signs the form indicating the results of the assessment. After the form has been signed, the results are officially ratified. The chair is responsible for providing the assessment results directly to the student administration office for the purposes of declarations and certificates. 8. Further procedure: The chair of the assessment committee is responsible for any further procedures arising due to the assessment results. Students whom the assessment committee has deemed to have performed unsatisfactorily in any way must be informed of the consequences of the assessment by means of a letter and/or a conference. The resulting decisions must be reported on the assessment form. 9. The chair of the assessment committee informs the Examination Board regarding all matters of a problematic nature that will not be addressed by the assessment committee, as well as with regard to matters for which these regulations contain no provisions. Article 21 Final assessment committee: Composition and working method 19

20 1. The Academy establishes an assessment committee for the final assessment, known as the final assessment committee, which operates under the responsibility of the Examination Board. The Head of the department of the course serves as the chair of this committee, which is made up of (a core team of) lecturers that supervise the student during the final study phase. 2. The Examination Board can add one or more external experts to the final assessment committee as members of the final examination committee. 3. The final examination is open to the public. However, this never applies to the deliberations of the final assessment committee. 4. The final assessment committee determines the result of the final examination assessment. Article 22 Final examination regulations for the Royal Academy of Art 1. The final examination (or final assessment) is arranged in conformity with the provisions of the WHW. The final examination takes place in the form of a final assessment. 2. The composition of the assessment committee for the final assessment (the final assessment committee) is described in Article 21 of these regulations. 3. The final assessment committee decides on the assessment of the final examination work in a collective assessment, in which the substance of the verdict of the external members is taken into account, as are the assessments of the individual elements contained in the final examination phase. The work presented plays a decisive role in this whole. The decision of the committee concerns whether the work, as a cohesive whole, manifests an authentic vision of the visual arts or design, and whether the individual theme and research incorporated in the work has been presented to the public in an appropriate manner. 4. The number, subject, technique and execution of the works are determined in consultation with the teachers involved and the head of the study programme, based on the goal of the final examination, as described in paragraph 3 of this article and in the description of the programmes of the study programmes in the Education and Examination Regulations. For the theory subjects, a written paper, the thesis, is required, the subject and the size of which is determined in consultation with the teacher in question. The paper must be submitted in triplicate: one copy for the student, one for the teacher and one for the records in the library. The copy of the final paper submitted to the teacher and the library remain the property of the Academy. If possible, the final paper must also be submitted in digital form (preferably in PDF format). The thesis is assessed separately. 5. All papers/pieces of work submitted for assessment must have been prepared under the supervision of the teacher (or teachers) in question, and they must have been accepted as such by the teacher (or teachers). 6. All pieces of work presented must be verifiably the inalienable intellectual property of the candidate. 7. The decision of the final assessment committee is based on a majority vote. In case of a tie, the chair has the deciding vote. 8. The secretary of the final assessment committee notifies the candidate of the outcome as soon as possible after the final assessment, but within three days at the latest. After the data have been processed, the candidate receives a judicium or verdict indicating the score and the outcome. The formulation of the score comprises a final grade, a list of grades and/or a reasoned written declaration. 9. If the student has not passed all of the required preceding components of the study, a decision is taken with regard to how and when the student will have another opportunity to pass these components. The student is informed of this decision by the 20
