What is the difference between a diploma contract, a credit contract, and an examination contract?
By registering as a student, you sign a contract with our university college. There are three types of contract:
- a diploma contract is a registration to enrol in a study programme for the purpose of earning a diploma or certificate. Example: registration to enrol in the programme ‘Bachelor of Education, pre-primary education’.
- a credit contract is a registration to enrol in one or several separate course units for the purpose of earning a credit certificate for those course units. Example: registration to enrol in the course unit ‘Social Economics’.
- an examination contract: students registering under an examination contract, will process the course material through independent study, and they will not have all the advantages that result from the status of student. Registering under an examination contract is possible for an entire study programme (for the purpose of obtaining a diploma) or for one or several course units (for the purpose of obtaining a credit certificate for these course units).
