If it is up to the House of Representatives, the binding study advice (BSA) will be abolished after the first year of study at HBO and university. A majority support GroenLinks’ proposal to replace the binding advice, which may require students to stop their studies, with a non-binding advice. Minister Van Engelshoven must discuss this with the educational institutions, the motion states.
At the end of the first year, students receive advice on the progress of their studies. Institutions require a minimum number of credits. The BSA has already been suspended due to the corona outbreak. Students who have been delayed because of the pandemic can catch up in the second year.
Press on students
Minister Van Engelshoven has long believed that the pressure on students has become too great due to the binding study advice. Two years ago she already made the proposal to lower the credit standard, but government parties VVD and CDA saw nothing in this. The minister then withdrew her proposal.
Now there is a majority in favor of the proposal of GroenLinks MP Lisa Westerveld. According to her, the BSA impairs the student’s own responsibility to determine whether it makes sense to continue with a particular study. In addition, it would prevent students from opting for board activities or voluntary work, for fear of not getting enough credits.
Minister Van Engelshoven is also of the opinion that the binding study advice does not do what it is intended for. In practice, many students who receive a negative study advice continue with the same study, only at a different institution.
Van Engelshoven is enthusiastic about the adoption of the motion:
