The Board of Examiners (BoE) plays a vital role in overseeing examinations and academic standards at AUC. They handle requests related to Academic Standards & Procedures (AS&P), deviations from the study programme, and cases of fraud or plagiarism.

The Board of Examiners (‘Examencommissies’) is responsible for the conduct of examinations and assessment. Its tasks are further explained in the Academic Standards and Procedures of AUC. In particular, you will usually need to get approval in advance from the Board of Examiners for any deviation or exception from the regular study programme. The Board of Examiners also handles cases of fraud or plagiarism committed by students. Members of the Board of Examiners are senior members of AUC’s faculty.  

All requests at submitted via the Digital AUC Service Desk and must be accompanied by a copy of your planning grid, for which you can find a template on the BoE Canvas page. Requests for recognition of off-campus or honours courses must always include a course manual and should be requested before starting those courses (i.e., before the start of the semester). Please consult your Tutor before sending a request to the Board of Examiners. Requests may take up to six weeks to process. 

Requests for the BoE

Requests for the Board of Examiners should be sent to the Secretary of the Board of Examiners. Please read how to on the following page.

Grade appeals: send to COBEX

Please note that grade appeals should not be sent to the AUC Board of Examiners but to the COBEX ("College van Beroep voor de Examens"; Examination Appeals Board) of the VU. If you would like to submit a grade appeal (for an assessment or an entire course), you need to email to start the procedure. Please also note that the COBEX requires you to include your email address and to sign the grade appeal. You can read more about the grade appeal procedure on the VU website via the link below. 

The BoE meets frequently, but a request can take up to six weeks to process. Please take this into account when submitting your request.
