  1. During the second and third year of PPS, students may replace one or two modules by other elective courses and minors  or an international exchange amounting to either 15 EC (when replacing one module) or 30 EC (when replacing two modules). Such replacements must always be submitted to and approved by the Board of Examiners well in advance.
  2. Students have to register in Osiris for the entire module as well as for the individual courses of the module.


The modules contain three courses. Students can only be admitted if they take all three courses during the same semester (retakes excluded). Students who are NOT enrolled in a bachelor, master, or exchange programme of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious studies cannot register directly for PPS modules. Instead, they can apply for admission by sending an e-mail to stip@ftr.ru.nl. Exchange students from other faculties than PTRS can send an application to internationaloffice@ftr.ru.nl. All applications must contain a separate document in which you (1) inform us about your current studies, (2) explain which module you want to take and why it is relevant to your studies, and (3) describe what you bring to the classroom. The document must be written in English.
