Details about the Bachelor Split

As you might know, starting in September 2017 new students will enroll in either the bachelor Economics & Business Economics or the bachelor Business Administration. This means that they can no longer enroll in the bachelor our students are currently following.

A big difference is that there will no longer be a Dutch stream and an international stream: both bachelors will be taught in English. There is however an option for  Dutch students to follow Dutch tutorials, in the first year.

So what are the changes that might affect you?
The current courses in the bachelor’s programme will be replaced by courses from the new programmes:

  • Current first-year courses will be offered for the last time in this 2016-2017 academic year.
  • Current second-year courses will be offered for the last time 2017-2018.
  • Current third-year courses will be offered for the last time in 2018-2019.

If you have a study delay now or in the future, transition arrangements will determine which alternative course you will have to take.

If you don’t pass a first-year course in this academic year then you will have to take an alternative course in the next academic year. There may be supplemental arrangements for some courses such as an extra examination resit opportunity. An overview of all the changes in the bachelor’s programme Economics & Business can be found here. This webpage contains important information if you have to redo a course, so read the information carefully!

As of June more information about the changes for second- and third-year courses for 2017-2018 can be found at this page.
