Examination Appeals Board

The Examination Appeals Board (College van Beroep voor de Examens, CBE) is an independent board of appeal, established under the terms of the Higher Education and Research Act (Wet op het Hoger Onderwijs en Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek, WHW). Students can lodge appeals at the CBE if they disagree with a decision by the department about:

  • negative binding study advise (BSA)
  • refusal of admission to a study programme, tests or exams
  • a decision made by examiners or a Board of Examiners (exemptions, assessments, plagiarism or fraud)

The letter of appeal must be send within six weeks of the date of issue of the decision in question. Different deadlines apply to appeals against the negative BSA decision. You can read more about this on the student website >>


The Examination Appeals Board consists of members of every faculty and of student members. The composition of the board changes every session.
