Assessment validity

Last updated on 12 April 2022

Results and exemptions generally do not have an expiration date. An exception to this are subjects whose knowledge or insights are evidently outdated or if the student's skills are proved to be outdated. The assessment validity differs per course. Courses that expired before 1 September 2017 remain expired.

Validity of results and study for a long time

If you study for a long time (i.e. longer than nominal + 1 year), the validity of the results obtained may expire on substantive grounds. The term after which this can happen can be found in the Academic and Examination Regulations (AER) in part B, under Validity period for results. If this applies to you, submit a request to the Examination Board to test the validity of your results.

Special circumstances

If you face special circumstances that affect your academic performance, resulting in a delay in your studies, you can request an extension validity of results, with the Examination Board. An extension is only granted if the student receives (or received) financial support through the Profile fund, due to a study delay. Therefore, the decision to extend depends on the Profile fund’s initial support.

Do you have special circumstances leading up to a delay in your studies, and do you receive support from the Profile fund? If so, please complete the form below to apply for an extension of your result's validity(s).
