Objections, appeals and complaints

If, as a prospective student, you have a complaint or do not agree with a certain decision, you can file a complaint or lodge an appeal. On this page you can find the Student Charter that tells what your rights are. If you believe these rights have been infringed or if you have serious grounds for an objection, you can use the forms on this page.

Right of complaint

Students (both prospective and current) have the right to complain about decisions of a body or a member of staff of the AUAS. This can be either a general complaint or a special complaint, for example about inappropriate behaviour or a complaint based on the Code of Conduct for International Students.
