Courses and minors for non-U.S.E. students and free movers

When you are not a student of the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.), it is possible to take economic courses at U.S.E. We offer courses in a real world perspective and in an international environment. Economics in Utrecht analyses economic issues with the insights of other fields such as Geography, Law, Social Sciences and Applied Data Science for Economists. By using this approach to study societal issues such as the emergence of social media or the development of unemployment in the Netherlands, you will learn to see these issues from different perspectives and will learn to think in terms of solutions and consequences.

All the courses are offered in English. Provided that you have met the entry requirements in general and for each course (see Course Catalogue), it is possible to take all courses, except for the thesis and the Applied Economics Research Course.

Please note:

  • Approval of the Graduate School is needed if you want to follow a Master's course. Courses on Master level will be restrictive; in general, you can only choose courses that are in the same or very similar field of studies. To request approval you are required to send an email to the Graduate School: graduateschool.use@uu.nl.
  • In cases of oversubscription, we will prioritize degree-seeking students. You can be denied enrolment into courses due to insufficient background knowledge or lack of places available. If this happens, we will always do our best to find suitable alternatives.
