    Your academic constitution

    The university's central Teaching and Examination Regulations (OER) form a mainframe upon which all education and evaluation is organised. It is the central academic book of rules.

    What is there to know

    Faculties can make additions to the central OER, usually adding details on practical matters such as deadlines, filling forms etc. Faculty-specific rules can be found in the supplementary faculty regulations.

    The teaching and examination regulations apply to the following programmes organised by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel:

    • bachelor programmes
    • master programmes (including advanced masters)
    • preparatory and bridging programmes
    • postgraduate programmes and the teacher education programme
