Adjustment of rules regarding the Binding study advice (BSA) 2015/2016

14 July 2016

The University of Groningen has amended the BSA regulations for the 2015/2016 academic year. The requirement that students gain their propaedeutic certificate by the end of their second year has been withdrawn for this academic year.

Students who were given a provisionally positive study advice in the previous academic year can continue with their degree programme, even if they have not gained their propaedeutic certificate. The University of Groningen has made this decision pending a letter that the Minister of Education, Culture and Science is expected to send to the Dutch House of Representatives in August after a ruling made by the courts. The Board of the University will meet with the University Council in August to discuss the P-in-2 policy.
