Students who started before 2018
If you started your Bachelor's programme before September 2018, you will take two minors (worth a total of 30 EC). The rules regarding minors are listed below. For an overview of English minors click on the right.
Rules and regulations
- You can choose from two minors, each worth 15 EC, or one minor worth 30 EC from the selection in the minor guide.
- The choice of minors from the selection is entirely free, with the condition that you must meet any entry requirements at the minor or course level.
- With effect from academic year 2020-2021 you may choose two elective minors. An elective minor must be approved by the Examination Board.
- You can choose up to 15 EC of first-year courses when filling your minor space.
- A minor taken outside of the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology, and Religious Studies counts as an elective minor.
- Multiple minors taken abroad are permitted. These “study abroad minors” do not count as elective minors.
- When registering for a minor, you must register for both the minor and the individual courses within the minor. Registration for minors occurs simultaneously with the registration for courses (read more).
Types of minors
- Interfaculty minor Middle East and North Africa(15 EC)

If you started your Bachelor's degree between September 2014 and September 2017, you will take two minors (together 30 ec). The rules can be found here.
Since Faculty minors are no longer offered by the Faculty of Arts, you may submit a substantiated request to the Examination Board to replace the course(s) you have not yet completed with another course, provided that the content matches the minor in question. This would allow you to complete the faculty minor after all.
You can also use the course(s) you have already passed in another (e.g. an elective) minor, or include them in the extracurricular space. For this, too, you must always submit a substantiated request to the examination board.
