The standard for the binding study advice (BSA) will be lowered. Education Minister Robbert Dijkgraaf has announced this in a letter to parliament on 9 May. Currently, higher education institutions are free to set their own BSA standard. Many programmes require students to obtain 45 or more in their first year. As of 2025-2026, there will be a maximum of 30 credits in year one and 60 in year two.
