The Examinations Board is an independent committee of which the members are appointed by the Dean of the Faculty. The Examinations Board is responsible for the quality of examinations and for the issue of degrees of the Master's programme. The Board assesses requests and complaints concerning the Education and Examinations Regulations.
The designation of ‘cum laude’ (with distinction) is added to your diploma in recognition of exceptional performance. Such an allocation by the Examinations Board is based on rules stated in the Rules and Guidelines of the Examinations Board.
In order to find out whether you have shown exceptional competence as a student you need to consult the Rules and Guidelines of the Examinations Board. Here you will find the conditions for the designation of ‘cum laude’, such conditions may be: no component is marked with less than a seven (7), the result for the Master’s thesis is at least an eight (8), the weighted average of all Master’s programme components, excluding the Master’s thesis, is at least an eight (8). These conditions vary per study programme.
Please take a look at article 5.2 of the Rules and Guidelines of the Examinations Board in order to find out what the specific conditions and exemptions for your study programme are.
