Redirecting Post: How can I get my post redirected to my new residence overseas?
It can always be a hassle if your post gets misplaced after you have moved abroad. It may also be difficult for your friends or relatives to contact you if you have moved without letting them know in advance. There is a smart way to ensure any lost or misplaced posts by applying for this service on the Postnl website. This will enable all posts to your old address to be automatically redirected to the new address abroad. This service from Postnl is free of charge.
To avoid confusion because the website is mainly in Dutch, there is the option of visiting a Postnl office in your area and activating this service.
You can apply for this service online by visiting their Postnl website at: https://www.postnl.nl/ontvangen/post-doorsturen/doorzendservice/.

Retake: For Type 2 Exams, can I revise my original assignment and submit it during the retake?
Starting from Block 2 (2020-2021), for retakes: students are NOT allowed to revise their original assingments submitted at the end of the respective teaching block. They must hand in a ‘new’ assignment. This is because the final submission of a Type 2 assignment is supported with a feedback that is provided on the draft (as a compulsory requirement) within the block. The retake submission will be based on the same exam Type 2 instructions provided during the teaching block but using a different topic/case/context/company etc.
There are however, exceptions to this rule:
