This book is meant for all that may be confronted with the HEARA and is aimed at familiarizing you with the regulations regarding higher education. We have attempted to avoid difficult legal terminology and, wherever this wasn’t possible, explain the terminology. Not every article, but a selection of articles picked by the authors is clarified. In the end (appendix II) we included the most relevant legal articles. We do recommend checking whether the article referred to in this book is still relevant, since articles tend to be amended on a regular basis (both minor and major topics). It is thus of use to have the most recent edition of the HEARA at hand or to check the articles at www.wetten.nl (this website contains the most up to date version of the applicable law).
