Binding Recommendation (BSA)
At the end of your first year you'll get a binding recommendation, which can be positive, negative or postponed.
In your fist year you have to obtain 45 EC, this equals three modules, to get a postive recommendation. If you have less EC's after your first year you'll get a negative recommendation, so you'll have to leave the programme. However there is a possibility to apply for a postponed recommendation, which will be dealt with personally and is different for each student.
From the 1st of September 2012, as in the rest of the Netherlands, the University of Twente applies the Bachelor-before-Master Rule. This measure implies, that one can only begin with a masters programme after the succesful completion of the bachelor. Because of this measure it is no longer possible, to begin with a masters, as a bachelor student with 150 EC or over. In return it is now possible to start with your master at two moments, either in February or in September.
You passed your bachelor if:
- you completed all modules of the bachelor,
- in every module there may be complementary requirements,
- compensation regulations exist for most modules.
You passed your master if:
- no grade on your gradelist is below or equal to a five;
- traineeship and final project (possibly combined) are separately completed with at least a six.
Pre-requirements are in place for the final year of the bachelor.
One can only start with a minor or graduationstage, if you already acquired 75 EC.
Compensation regulations Bachelor
In the regulation, as described here, clusters are defined in which compensation is possible. These clusters may be modules, but may also contain (parts of) multiple modules.
- Cluster I: Linear Structures I in module 1 (201800135), Linear Structures II and Analysis I in module 2 (201800136)
- Cluster II: Module 4 (201800138)
- Cluster III: Module 5 (201800139)
- Cluster IV: Module 6 (201800140)
- Cluster V: Module 7 (201800141)
- Cluster VI: Module 8 (201400434)
In every cluster one has to:
- have a weighted average of at least 5.5;
- have at most one grade below 5.5;
- have no grades below 4.5;
- have a weighted average of at least 5.5 for both modules, when using compensation in cluster I;
- have a weighted average of at least 5.5 for Analysis I and Analysis 2, and a weighted average of at least 5.5 for Probability Theory and Statistics, when using compensation in cluster III.
The final grade of a module, in which compensation is used, is the weighted average of its parts, calculated using the same formula as would be used when no compensation is in play.
The compensation rule may be used at most one time in B1-year.
The compensation rule may be used at most one time in B2-year.
The compensation rule may only be invoked for modules in which all parts are completed in the course of a single academic year.
