The courses below are 7,5 EC (unless indicated otherwise). The period (1/2/3/4) and time slot (A/B/C/D) are stated in parentheses per course, see schedules. You take 15 EC per period from different timeslots. You have to register for courses yourself.
In your first year you take six compulsory courses (45 EC) and you do a consultancy project (15 EC).
In your second year you take two elective courses (15 EC) and you write your Master’s thesis (45 EC). Electives allow you to specialise in a field of your interest and can be related to your thesis topic. These must be relevant to your programme and at least 7,5 EC needs to be a natural science course. You can choose from the recommended electives (below). It is possible to take other courses offered by Utrecht University, another Dutch university, or a university abroad. Before you make your choice, please read the selection regulations in appendix I of the Study Guide of the current academic year.
