Board of Examiners

Requests to the Board of Examiners can be submitted via Osiris > Cases.

The Board of Examiners decides among other things on elective courses, exemptions, adjustments to your study programme or postponement of graduation. Should you need advice first or do you have questions about your request, please contact your Study Advisor or Student Affairs.

After logging in your details and study programme automatically appear in Osiris. Click Cases > Start a new case > choose GEO Submitting a request to the Board of Examiners. Describe clearly and completely in which matter you need a decision. If applicable, upload documents in pdf (for example, a description of an elective course, or proof of a result obtained elsewhere).

The Board will respond within a few working after submitting your request. You will receive a message in your UU student e-mail and a notification in Osiris. The final decision may take up to six weeks and is also displayed and saved in Osiris.

*Some decisions require a certified hardcopy proof copy. In such cases you will be instructed to hand this in at the Student Affairs desk.
