  • 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 Examining Board well in advance.
  • Students have to register in Osiris for the entire module as well as for the individual courses of the module.
  • You can opt for an internship minor if you are in the third year of your bachelor’s programme, and want to orient yourself on the labor market as part of your education.
