Program and Examination Regulations (OER)

Program and Examination Regulations (OER)

The PER is the Program and Examination Regulations for a program and contains clear and sufficient information about the program, making it the basic document for both students and teachers.

Subjects covered by the PER include:

  • the content of the program and the associated final examinations, the number and sequence of other examinations and the times when these can be taken
  • the type of examination (oral, written or other types of examination)
  • the period of validity of successfully completed examination components
  • the right of inspection and evaluation

The Higher Education and Research Act (Wet op het hoger onderwijs en wetenschappelijk onderzoek) draws a distinction between program and examination regulations and examination committee rules and guidelines.


Due to the measures taken against the corona virus there have been several changes in education and examination. This applies to the academic year 2019-2020, but adjustments are still required in the academic year 2020-2021 and in the academic year 2021-2022. Several decisions have been made to allow for these adjustments. On the basis of these decisions, a number of regulations have been or will be (temporarily) amended. Addenda to the regulations have been made for this. On this page you will find the addenda.
