Binding Study Advice

The University of Groningen has implemented a so-called 'Binding Study Advice' (BSA) for new bachelors degree students. BSA entails that if students do not earn a sufficient number of credits in their first year of studies, or if they do not complete their first year courses within two years, they can no longer participate in their study programme. First year students should earn at least 45 out of 60 credits within their first year of studies*. On top of that, all first year courses (60 credits) should be passed fully within two years. If students do not meet these requirements, they cannot continue the LLB programme. This BSA, among others, encourages students to examine carefully if the programme they are applying to is suitable for them. If a student receives a negative advice after the first or second year, that student is banned from similar programmes at our University for two years in total.
