Bachelor-before-master rule

Wageningen University offers leniency in the bachelor-before-master rule to students who - due to COVID-19 - encounter problems in the transition from their bachelor's to a master's programme at Wageningen.

The temporary leniency in the bachelor-before-master rule no longer applies. This leniency was a temporary measure for master students starting in September 2020 and was linked to the fact that, due to COVID-19 measures, between March and August 2020 some courses were cancelled.

For the academic year 2020-2021 education has been organised in the form of blended learning and alternatives have been found for courses that cannot take place in their original form. Currently all courses are going ahead, making the temporary measure to deal with study delay superfluous.
