The semester enrollment for all our students from HS22 onwards, is one of the RVO22 programs.

New study structure, new or different compulsory modules

My program now has fewer compulsory modules. What does that mean for me?

As a rule, the previous «old» compulsory module can still be credited towards the degree. You will find more detailed information on this in the individual instructions.

In my program I used to be able to choose from the compulsory modules, now I can't. What does this mean for me?

Waiver of failed attempts and repetition opportunities

Will the failed attempts taken prior to HS22 be removed from the student portal and therefore no longer be on the Transcript of Records?

No, all past achievements will remain and will continue to be listed on the Transcript of Records, including failed attempts. Failed attempts taken prior to HS22 that are waived under the transitional regulations are simply no longer relevant, i.e., no longer subject to exclusion. 

Is a failed attempt for the final thesis (Bachelor's or Master's thesis) also waived if it was taken before HS22?

No, a failed attempt for the final thesis (Bachelor's or Master's thesis) remains valid in any case. A failed thesis may be retaken once.

Why aren't the failed attempts of the assessment level also deleted?

Due to the two-year time limit for the assessment level, any failed assessment module must still be passed in the retake year.

Due to the two-year time limit for the additional requirement modules, the missing ECTS credits from the additional requirements must still be passed in the retake year.
