Applying for exemptions

In order to apply for an exemption, you need to fill in an exemption request form. You can fill this form in online and attach all necessary documentation.


The Board of Examiners can, at your request, grant an exemption for an examination if you have passed an examination of a course which is similar in content, size/workload and level which is part of an already obtained bachelor or law master degree.

For exact regulations with regard to exemptions, please check the Teaching and Examination Regulations.

The Board of Examiners decides within six weeks after receiving your request. You need to provide the Board of Examines with information with regard to your diploma, examinations, and assessments based on which you apply for an exemption. You will also have to hand in some documentations, like a certified transcript or diploma, a list of literature of the course and a course description. You should hand in a file which is as complete as possible; an incomplete file can only for this reason be rejected.

As rule of thumb: HBO courses (courses from a University of Applied science) cannot lead to exemptions from post-propaedeutic courses (bachelor or master courses).


Applications need to be handed in by the end ofweek 2of the block in which the course is taught.
