University Admissions Board

The University Admissions Board processes first and second-cycle admission cases that are not faculty-specific. The main purpose of the Admissions Board and Presiding Committee is to ensure that admissions are fair and transparent.

The Admissions Board processes matters of a more general and overall nature, such as:

  • decisions on specific selection criteria for individual courses and programmes, in accordance with the University’s Admission Rules
  • decisions on admission and announcement of individual courses and programmes, in accordance with the University’s Admission Rules
  • adoption of current instructions on application processes.

The Presiding Committee has through a mandate been delegated the authority to decide on matters concerning individual cases, such as:

  • decisions on individual admission cases when reassessment has been requested
  • decisions on requests concerning selection on special grounds 
  • decisions on suspension and in certain cases repayment of tuition fees.

All decisions made by the Presiding Committee are reviewed by the Admissions Board at the next meeting.

Appeals from individual students regarding qualification matters are processed through delegation by administrators at the Admissions Office and submitted to the Higher Education Appeals Board for a decision.

The document below outlines the delegation rules for different types of decisions.
