Students are subject to a number of rights, duties, guidelines and regulations.

The Code of Conduct provides the framework for behaviour and reflection for employees and students of Utrecht University.

Utrecht University’s Code of Conduct on the Language of Instruction indicates which factors are important in determining the language of instruction, and what parameters are in place to regulate that decision.

Education and examination regulations

The Education and examination regulations describe the rules and regulations that all UU programmes have to adhere to. Every programme also has its own Education and Examination Regulations, in which the specific rules and regulations of that programme are described. You can find more information on the pages of your study programme.
