The Executive Board, after advice from the Examination Committee, may also determine that the person concerned will not be enrolled as long as the proof referred to in the preceding sentence has not been furnished. 4. Indien bij ministeriële regeling nadere vooropleidingseisen als bedoeld in artikel 7.25 WHW en opgenomen in artikel 2, zijn vastgesteld kan de bezitter van een diploma geen examens afleggen voordat hij op een door het College van Bestuur te bepalen wijze op grond van een aanvullend onderzoek heeft aangetoond te beschikken over de kennis en vaardigheden waarop de eisen, bedoeld in artikel 2 betrekking hebben. 5. Het College van Bestuur kan bepalen dat de bezitter van een diploma als bedoeld in art. 1 niet kan worden ingeschreven indien dat bestuur van oordeel is dat de nadere vooropleidingseisen, bedoeld in artikel 2 van dien aard zijn dat redelijkerwijs verwacht kan worden dat niet tijdens het eerste jaar van inschrijving voor de opleiding op grond van een aanvullend onderzoek als bedoeld in het vierde lid aangetoond kan worden dat betrokkene beschikt over de kennis en vaardigheden waarop die eisen betrekking hebben. Het College van Bestuur bepaalt op welke wijze betrokkene op grond van een aanvullend onderzoek met het oog op de inschrijving vrijgesteld kan worden van die eisen. 6. The requirements to be set for the test, referred to in paragraphs 4 and 5, are included in Art. 11. Article 11 Additional test pursuant to Art paragraphs 3 and 4 WHW 1. If a prospective student has a propaedeutic diploma (university of applied sciences (hbo) or academic university (wo)), a hbo degree diploma or a wo degree diploma, but does not meet the further prior education requirements referred to in Article 2, in the additional test, the knowledge of the required subjects or the required level, referred to in Article 2, will be tested. 2. If a prospective student has a foreign diploma that is equivalent to a havo or vwo diploma but does not meet the further prior education requirements referred to in Article 2, in the additional test the knowledge of the required subjects or the required level, referred to in Article 2, will be tested and requirements with respect to mastery of the Dutch or English language will be set. 3.

This requirement may be departed from for a prospective student with an equivalent German diploma. If a prospective student as referred to in paragraph 2 wants to enrol in an English language programme, the prospective student must demonstrably have obtained an IELTS score six. 13

Article 12 Admission to the post-propaedeutic phase A student can be admitted to the post-propaedeutic phase of a programme in different ways: 1. The requirement for enrolment in the programme after the propaedeutic examination is possession of a diploma of a propaedeutic examination of that programme which has been passed. 2. Het College van Bestuur kan vrijstelling verlenen van de in het eerste lid bedoelde eis aan de bezitter van een al dan niet in Nederland afgegeven diploma, indien dat diploma naar het oordeel van het College van Bestuur ten minste gelijkwaardig is aan het in het eerste lid bedoelde getuigschrift. Indien het een buiten Nederland afgegeven diploma betreft, kan het College van Bestuur daarbij bepalen dat geen examens of onderdelen daarvan worden afgelegd dan nadat ten genoegen van de desbetreffende Examencommissie het bewijs is geleverd van voldoende beheersing van de Nederlandse taal voor het met vrucht kunnen volgen van het onderwijs. 3. In departure from the first paragraph, at the request of the person who is enrolled, the Examination Committee can already allow that person to take one or more components of the final examination before the student has passed the propaedeutic examination of the relevant programme. An intake discussion with the course manager will investigate whether exemptions can be made based on comparable curricula and/or a prior portfolio. The following considerations apply to all exemptions for the course: a. all proposed exemptions will be assessed on an individual basis; b. all proposed exemptions will be submitted to the Examination Committee for inclusion in their final deliberations. The above applies to candidates participating in a Prohbo programme as validated by the course; qualifications obtained previously; and exemptions for candidates with several years relevant work experience. For the dual study option in particular, candidates with relevant work experience wishing to apply for an exemption are required to compile a portfolio that includes a competence assessment by the candidate themselves and their immediate line manager. This portfolio will form the basis for a criterion-driven interview following a fixed format (criterion-driven interview form), after which the conversation will expand into more standard intake questions in accordance with an intake form. Separately, a first year final examination for English and BE/BA will be taken to determine whether these areas may also be exempted. 14

15 Article 13 Associate Degree Transfer 1. Students who have been awarded a degree, as intended in Art. 7.10b, paragraph 1 WHW, are entitled to follow a Bachelor s degree programme in Higher Professional Education.

The units of study 5 of the curriculum are tested in the manner indicated in the appendix with the composition of the propaedeutic and post-propaedeutic phase. The units of study are assessed by means of an examination, which may consist of one or more separate tests. 2. An examination and/or test that has to be taken by a group of students together must be organised so that it results in an individual mark for each student concerned. It must at any rate be guaranteed that the qualification "insufficient" as assessment is given to a student who has not made enough effort to pass the test. How the specific contents are to be filled in must be stated when the assignment is formulated. 3. An examination or test offered as a resit in the same programme year must have the same form on all occasions. 4. Departure from the preceding paragraph is possible in case of force majeure or if it is not possible for organisational and/or educational reasons to offer a resit in the same form as at the first opportunity in the relevant programme year. In that case, the resit may have a different form, but it will have to meet the equivalency requirements as referred to in Article 4 of this chapter. Besides in the case of force majeure, a situation as described in the preceding sentence must be made known at the start of a programme year and relate to the following units of study: Resits of written knowledge tests in the third and fourth study years.

The procedure is described in the Study and Disability Regulations, as attached to the Students Charter as an appendix. 6. A student who meets the criteria of the Top Sport Scheme adopted by the Executive Board can request an adapted test schedule from the Examination Committee, which - if the Examination Committee is of the opinion that this is possible and not onerous for the programme - is as much in line as possible with the student s individual possibilities. 3 Examination = an examination of knowledge, insight and skills as referred to in Articles 7.3and 7.10 of the Higher Education and Research Act (WHW), the results of which are expressed in a mark and which constitutes the conclusion of a unit of study. 4 Test = part of an examination to which a mark by an examiner is attached. 5 Unit of study = as referred to in Art. 7.3 WHW, which together with other units of study forms the curriculum of the programme, to which an examination is attached.
