Few people are particularly fond of formal rules and regulations. Yet, they are important. Whenever more than two people need to work together, not having any rules easily results in inequality and injustice. We strive to be as clear as possible in setting rules, but we also try to keep the number of rules and regulations limited. All the regulations taken together constitute an impressive interconnected maze. Most of the rules you will encounter in the regulations will seem very familiar, as they are governed by common sense, or are widely applied in education all over the world. Still, some rules might not be as clear or logical as we think they are. Feel free to ask your programme manager/study adivsor about them.
