Year two of the MSBBSS programme, and in particular the summer break between the first and second year, leaves room for electives.

Electives comprise, for instance, additional courses which are part of curricula of other Master's programmes inside and outside Utrecht University, summer school courses, and internships. Electives are chosen individually, according to the specific needs of each student. The aim of the electives is to provide useful additional expertise and work experience for MSBBSS students.

For more information, consult the respective course manual.

  1. The electives coordinator needs to approve the content of the course.
  2. The student needs to enrol in the course in due time.
  3. The student needs to provide the electives coordinator with all the necessary certificates.
  4. The electives coordinator makes sure everything is registered correctly.

All necessary information, documents, and certificates must be sent to the Elective course coordinator before April 15 of year 2. Otherwise problems may occur with graduating.

  1. Contact the teacher of the course and ask him/her to confirm in writing that you are allowed to participate.
  2. Email this confirmation to the Student desk together with a filled in registration form.

If you want to participate in a course in the first semester of the second year, contact the Student desk no later than August 1. If you want to participate in a course in the second semester of the second year, contact the Student desk no later than January 1.
