Regulations, codes of conduct and guidelines

On this page you will find a number of important central regulations, codes of conduct and guidelines. Specific regulations that are set by the departments, can be found on the pages of the majors or master's programs.

Program and Examination Regulations (PER)

The Program and Examination Regulations (PER) contain all the information on education and examination. There is a model PER that applies to everyone. In addition, each program has its own PER, which contain information about the content of a program and the testing within the program. Read more about PER.

Student statute

The student statute states all rights and obligations of students and the TU/e. The statute consists of two parts, namely a: 

  1. Institutional part that counts for the entire TU/e 
  2. Study program part that differs per study program 

This study program specific part can be found on the pages of the majors and master’s study programs. 

Binding recommendation

At TU/e, we use the Binding Recommendation (BSA). At the end of your freshmen year, you have to have a minimum of study credits in order to continue your studies. The regulations regarding BSA have been adjusted temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Bachelor-before-Master rule

Because of the bachelor-before-master rule, you first have to finish our bachelor’s or transition program before you can register for a TU/e master’s program. At this moment of writing, national discussions are taking place for possibly lifting up this rule for the academic year of 2021-2022. As soon as there’s more clarity, you can read it here. 

Regulations and agreements

Within the TU/e, we have recorded a variety of regulations and agreements. These are, for example, agreements on how we treat one another, but also how you could file a complaint or what your rights and obligations are. Documents that are relevant to you as a student can be found on the Regulations and guidelines page.
