On this page we explain the role of the Examination Committee. Additionally, the rules and regulations of the study programs (PER) and Examination Committee (RE) can be found here. 

Program and Examination Regulations (PER)​ 

The PER (OER) is the foundational document for both students and teaching staff. The PER contains clear and adequate information about the program. 

Subjects covered by the PER include:​ 

  • program content and associated examinations and the number, order and times of other examinations​ 

  • the type of examination (oral, written or other types of examination)​ 

  • how long examination results will be valid​ 

  • the right of inspection and evaluation​ 

  • ​and more 

Regulations of the Examination Committee (ER)

Subjects regulated by the TU/e Examination Committee Rules and Guidelines (Examination Regulations) include:​ 

  • how the Examination Committee is formed​ 

  • Examination Committee procedures​ 

  • Examination Committee tasks​ 

  • rules relating to quality assurance of testing and exams​

Corona virus measures 

Due to the corona virus measures, there have been (or will be) several changes in education and examination. This applies to the 2019/2020 academic year, but adjustments are still required in the 2020/2021 academic year. 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 arrangements have been made for this. On this page you will find the addenda per scheme.
