Besides the required subjects your curriculum also contains a number of elective subjects. Each year you have to achieve a set number of credits from the elective programme. This page offers more information.


The elective programme consits a choice from a number of organized educational activities (SEM)

Seminars are workshop-like classes that last for one or two weeks. In the so called seminar weeks there are no regular classes. The seminars on offer are announced timely on the student portal.


  • There is a SEMINAR programme in January and in June (both periods are 4 weeks)
  • More about the SEMINAR programma (only Dutch)


  • Seminars are signed off on the basis of participation and attendance.
