In your Master’s programme you can opt for one elective course. All the faculty’s elective courses are worth 5 ECTS.
You can enrol in an elective course from 28 October at 6:00 PM to 1 November via OSIRIS-student. You'll receive an introduction to OSIRIS-student in September.
It is not possible to enrol in more than one elective course.
The number of students admitted to a course is limited. If you enrol in an elective course during the enrolment period in October you can choose your working group yourself. If that working group turns out to be full at the time of enrolment, you can try to enrol in another working group. If all working groups are already full, you will have to choose a different course.

Your elective choices within your Master’s programme can also comprise a Master’s course at another faculty or academic university in the Netherlands. The course attended must be worth at least 5 EC, but may also be 7.5 EC.
If you want to choose a course at a different department / faculty within Utrecht University for your elective choices in your Master’s programme, you should take the enrolment period into account. Do not forget that a course may be full during the late enrolment period.
Recommended course for all social science students:
Neighbourhoods and crime (Social Geography, GEO4-3316)

This course is offered by GEO sciences and therefore has a different registration date. The registration period for this course is from 16 to 29 September. So please make sure to sign up on time!
