2013-2014 Student Charter
The Student Charter comprises the rights and obligations of Wageningen University students. These rights and obligations are based on Wageningen University regulations, but also on legislation that applies to students at all Dutch universities.
2013-2014 Student Charter
The Executive Board is responsible for the charter and takes care of it's yearly update, if necessary. Possible urgent changes will be made known to students via Resource and My Portal. The Student Charter is published on the website of Wageningen University, in both Dutch and English.
Rights may be derived directly from the charter, with the exception of the passages which, despite our best efforts, are in conflict with legislation.
The charter consists of two parts: a programme specific part and an institutional part. The programme specific part, dealing with the structure and courses of each programme, may be found in the Study Handbook. The institutional part of the charter consists of the regulations mentioned on this page.
The 2013-2014 Student Charter is decided upon by the Executive Board after approval of the Student Council, obtained on July 3th, 2013.
