Students who started before 2021 can look in Osiris to find the descriptions of earlier programmes. Also look in the Transitional Arrangements on the STIP site, especially if a course from your cohort's programme is not taught any more. In cases of doubt, contact the student advisor: Johanna.glimmerveen@ru.nl.
