You need to complete 12EC of elective courses. You may choose ANY Master level course to be part of this elective space. You may thus choose courses from the CNS programme (e.g., additional track or skill training courses), but you may also choose courses from other Master programmes at the RU (e.g., Behavioural Science, AI, Neurophysics, etc.). You may even choose Master level (!) courses from outside the Radboud University to be part of your elective space. If you would like to do this, you need to request this to the Examination Board. For more information on how to do this, see the FAQ file that you can find on the CNS Brightspace community site. The course needs to be registered before you take it, so making the request is mandatory, otherwise your ECs will not be registered on your diploma.
Below you may find a list of suggested courses for you elective space. These courses can be taken as elective for your 120ECs, but as mentioned above, you may also choose other courses to be part of your elective space.
