Exemptions

Please make sure you have all the required documents ready before you apply. These can include documents that proof you meet the requirements and a written motivation.

You can apply for an exemption through OSIRIS Student.

Internal transfer

If you want to switch to another course at HKU you can request a transfer. This requires the following steps:

1: Discuss the transfer with the course leader of the course you want to switch to. They need to agree to this transfer first.

2: After the course leader has agreed to the transfer, send an email to sz@hku.nl

This email must contain the following information:
- Student number
- Full name
- The course you are currently enrolled in.
- The course you wish to be enrolled in.
- The name of the course leader you have discussed this with.

3: After OSZ has received your email we will submit your request to the director of the school.

4: OSZ will inform you through email of the decision of the director. If they agree to the transfer you will receive the transfer date and your tutor will be informed.

5: With the help of your tutor you can apply for exemptions and/or replacement modules with the board of examiners. It is important that you do this as soon as possible after your transfer.

Changes

Any change in your exam programme must be confirmed by the board of examiners.
