Elective courses

All Master's programmes of the GSLS (excluding SBM and Epidemiology Postgraduate) have space for 12 EC of electives. There are multiple options to fulfill these electives. One of those options is to fill the elective component with GSLS Master's degree courses. No permission is needed for this and GSLS courses are by default good choices to fill your elective component.

Other options to fulfill your elective space

Beneath the list of GSLS elective courses, you will find more information on other options to fullfil your elective space. Make sure to check this information when you consider one of these options because additional approval is needed by for instance the programme coordinator and/or Board of Examiners.

Expensive courses

The courses Laboratory Animal Sciences and Radiation Safety are expensive courses. You should have written approval from your programme coordinator if you want to take one of these courses. A copy of the arrangement has to be sent to the Master’s administration office for administrative purposes.

If you take one of these courses you cannot automatically follow the other, but in exceptional cases more than one course may be allowed.
