Evaluation Rules

Submission of assignments

  • Fellows can only submit assignments of units available by means of the electronic platform Blackboard (EleUM). These are the running unit and previous units in the current Round.

  • Fellows joining the JMHPE at a different moment than the start of Unit 1 are allowed to work backward and submit assignments from previous units in the same Round.

  • Submission of assignments of running and previous units will be possible at any time. Timely submission of assignments, however, is recommended.

  • A Fellow is allowed to work on units in his/her initial Round for a maximum of 12 months. If a minimum of 50 percent of a particular unit has been submitted and graded, this period is extended with another 12 months (provided that these 12 months do not extend beyond the maximum program duration). After this period, the Fellow is required to continue in units of the then current Round.

Grading of assignments

  • Each assignment within a unit will be marked in whole marks with a score ranging between 1 (minimum) and 10 (maximum), supplemented by feedback from the Marker.

  • All marks and feedback will be made available to the Fellow on EleUM.

  • Fellows will receive a grade and feedback on their assignment within a period of three weeks after the submission of the assignment.

  • A fellow has passed the unit if the score for each assignment within the unit is 6.0 or higher. The final unit score is the average score of the unit assignments.

  • If an assignment is marked 5.0 or less, an assignment resubmission is required until a score of 6.0, or higher, has been received, to pass the unit. In each unit Fellows have three opportunities to resubmit an assignment which has a score of 5.0 or less. If after that the score is still 5.0 or less, the Fellow’s continuation in the program will be reviewed by the Directors of the program.

  • Having passed the unit, a student has one opportunity per unit to resubmit one assignment for score improvement. The score of this resubmission will be the final score for the assignment.

  • Submission of all assignments in all units is one of the pre-requisites for graduation.

Honors degree requirements

To receive an Honours degree at graduation the following rules apply:

  • Having received a unit score of 8.0 or higher in 6 out of 9 units

  • No score for any assignment in any of the units below 7.0

  • Active participation in the ML Web, Listserv discussions

  • Absence of offences against the plagiarism rules (see below).

Plagiarism and Collusion

  • Plagiarism is the presentation of work that has been copied in whole or in part from another person’s work, or from any other source such as published books, periodicals, internet, newspapers, films, television and even verbally without due acknowledgment in the text. Plagiarism is considered a contravention of University and Program Rules.

  • Collusion is the presentation of material that is the result in whole or in part of an unauthorized collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion is considered a contravention of University and Program Rules.

  • If plagiarism and/or collusion exceed 30 percent, the fellow will be required to clarify the overlap in order to prevent the accusation of fraud. In case of fraud, both the supplier of assignments to others and the receiver/user are required to clarify the matter. A plagiarized assignment will not be graded.

  • In a case where a Fellow has been involved in severe plagiarism or collusion, the matter will be referred to the Directors of the program for prosecution of fraud, with as the ultimate consequence of being expelled from the JMHPE program for a shorter or longer period.

  • For a resubmitted assignment of a plagiarized assignment, as well as for the whole unit, the maximum mark  will be 6/10.4

  • Assignments should be prepared and submitted as individual work of the Fellow all through the program, unless otherwise explicitly stated in the unit book. Assignments are considered copyright to both the Fellow and the program.

Programme and fee payment delays

  • The total fee of the program is €7500, to be paid in 2 installments:

  • €2500 to Suez Canal University. Payment deadline is the Fellow’s starting moment in the program.

  • €5000 to Maastricht University. Payment deadline is 3 months after the Fellow’s starting moment in the program. Fellows will receive an invoice for this installment 2 months after their start in the program.

  • Fellows who make use of the 12-month extension of the program duration are required to pay an additional program fee of €500. Fellows will receive an invoice for this installment from Maastricht University upon the moment their initial program duration period has ended.

  • Access to the program will be blocked if payments have not been received in due time.

  • A Fellow who decides to withdraw or who was deregistered from the JMHPE program and later wants to start again is required to pay the full fee again and to start in the newest Round. 

Program starting moments and duration

There are 4 moments per Round at which a Fellow can start the program:

  • Batch 1: start of Unit 1 (end of March)

  • Batch 2: start of Unit 4 (end of July)

  • Batch 3: start of Unit 7 (end of October)

  • Batch 4: start of Unit 9 (January)


  • Fellows who start in Batch 1 have a period of 24 months to finish the program, i.e. until the Graduation ceremony 2 years from their start of the program. The Graduation ceremony is held each year in April. Fellows from Batches 2-4 have until the same Graduation ceremony to finish the program (i.e. Batch 2 has 20 months, Batch 3 has 17 months, Batch 4 has 14 months).

  • If a Fellow has not finished the program within this period, it can be extended with 12 months, i.e. until the next Graduation ceremony. For this extra period, an additional program fee payment is required. Registration to the program will be ended after this extra period.

  • If a Fellow’s registration to the program is ended without having completed all units, the Fellow will receive an official letter stating the completed units.

  • A Fellow can ask for a freezing of his/her program participation, which only can be granted when this request is grounded invalid arguments. A Fellow can submit a freezing request once with a maximum of one year. Freezing their participation does not relief Fellows from fulfilling the program fee on time and on schedule.
