Student Charter 2022-2023
The Student Charter 2022-2023 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.
The Executive Board is responsible for the charter and takes care of its yearly update, if necessary. Possible urgent changes will be made known to students via Resource and myWURtoday. 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 theStudy Handbook. The institutional part of the charter consists of the regulations mentioned on this page.
The Student Charter is decided upon by the Executive Board after approval of the Student Council.
