General information

Use the minor tool of options to see which minors you are allowed to take

What is a minor?

A minor is a package of course subjects of (usually) 15 EC, which allows you to specialize or broaden your knowledge and competences. Half a year of most study programs is to be filled with two packages of 15 EC.  This is in most studies the first half year of the third year.

For students who, for whatever reason, cannot take the minor during the usual period, the opportunity os offered to take a minor in the second semester. However, the offer will be smaller than in the first semester.

You can choose a minor within or outside your program of faculty. In addition, there are other possibilities. More information about these other options can be found here. 

What are my options?

You can choose for (a combination of):

You can read more about studying abroad, at another institution and the transfer minor under Other options.

Possible Additional Requirements

Additional conditions apply to a number of minors. If you are not allowed to take a certain minor that you would like to do, please contact your program coordinator to discuss your options.

In the minor tool of options you can see which, after selecting your program, which UT minors you can take. Apart from the fact that you are allowed to do so, there are often requirements you have to meet. Is is your own responsibility to meet these requirements. You can find the requirements in the description of the minor.

Provisional registration

The registration for a minor is provisional, because after the registration period there will be an inspection by the Educational Affairs Office. They will check wheter you meet the EC-requirement (set by your own programme) to be allowed to start a minor. If you do not meet this requirement, your registration will be rejected. You will not be allowed to participate in the minor. For more information/advice it is best to contact your study advisor.

For the 1A and 1B minors, most registrations will be assessed in August. This is becauser there may still be results that can count towards the EC requirement. If you want to know for sure whether you meet the EC requirement, look in the program-specific part of the EER of your program or ask your study advisor. Often it is also mentioned under a specific item on the website of your program.

Your study progress overview in Osiris will show whether your minor registration has been approved or rejected. You will also receive an email when your minor enrollment(s) have been reviewed.

Overlap mathematics

If there is overlap in the mathematics part, you must take a substitute course. If there is a possible overlap, this is shown in the minor tool of options and the course catalogue. The standard substitute course for this is Introduction to Mathematical Analysis in various EC-variants (depending on amount of EC + starting block of the mathematics component in the chosen minor). The course codes are:

201600166

Introduction to Mathematical Analysis  

2 EC

1A

201400385

Introduction to Mathematical Analysis  

3 EC

1B; 2A

201600167

Introduction to Mathematical Analysis

4 EC

1A

If there is overlap in the mathematics component, check with your study advisor to see if you qualify for a substitute course and, if so, which variant you should take. You must register for the substitute course in OSIRIS yourself. Also let the contact person of the minor know that you will not take the mathematics part of the minor, so that your results will be registered correctly. inschrijven/yitschrijven

NOTE: If you want to deviate from the standard subject, you will have to ask permission from your own program, but also from the program offering the substitute course. Not all components can be followed just like that, so you might not get permission.

IMPORTANT! Introduction to Mathematical Analysis is not a course of the fourth quartile, so for this quartile you'll have to do this by self-study. At the end of the fourth quartile an exam can be taken (this is the resit for the third module).

REgister for the minor, not the module

You must register for a minor during the registration period, in OSIRIS. The registration for the minor also ensures automatic registration for the corresponding module. So you do not have to register separately for the corresponding module! You will be registered for the corresponding module a few weeks before the minor starts.

maximum can be reached

For a large number of minors there is a maximum number of participants allowed. It is therefore possible that if you wait too long to register, the minor of your choice is already full. Registration is then no longer possible. So make sure you register on time! 

Has your preferred minor already reached the maximum? Make sure you have a back up plan. Here is more information on what to do if a minor is already full.
