    Relevant Regulations

    • WHW section 7.3d; section 7.12b paragraph 1c;

  • Minor

    On the major minor website of the UT are all the rules that apply to choosing a minor from the UT minor offer. However, some minors require a small modification to remove an overlap with the rest of your study programme which needs approval of the examination board. Other minors such as a minor abroad are nonstandard and also require approval of the examination board.

    You always need to contact your programme coordinator first. In most cases, they have a mandate from the examination board to approve your minor. However, if your minor has novel elements which have not occurred in minors chosen before by others then they will recommend that you send your request the examination board using the request form on this website.

    Plan of action

    Step 1. Gather information on possible minor courses

    • Major minor website for the UT minor offer and all the rules that apply to choosing a minor;
    • Student Mobility webpage of the faculty of EEMCS for minor possibilities abroad;
    • Minor webpages of other universities.

    Step 2a. Request approval for your minor course package from your programme coordinator

    The programme coordinator will check wether your course package:

    1. meets the requirements the study programme has set for a minor course package;
    2. has nog overlap with courses from the study programme;
    3. has a certain coherence, is of academic level and satisfies certain limits on language or cultural courses as set by the programme.

    Below you can find the request form (exchange) minor, which you need to fill out submit to your programme coordinator.

    Step 2b. request approval for the minor course package from the examination board

    The programme coordinator might recommend the student to request approval for the course package from the examination board if there are novel elements in the minor package. Also if the programme coordinator gives a negative recommendation, the student may request approval for the course package from the examination board.

In certain MSc programmes this decision has been mandated to the programme coordinator. In case your study programme makes use of a programme approval form, you can find this form on the website of your study programme.
