    Curriculum Courses


Internships are not a standard part of the curriculum, but we heartily support any student who wishes to do the extra work and do an internship. In as far we can, we will assist in finding a suitable position in the Netherlands or abroad.

Study abroad

The Master’s programme is planned to last one year – three blocks with courses, one block writing the thesis. Studying abroad is not an integrated option. However, if you plan to do so, get in contact with the International Office about opportunities. Such a study abroad is possible but will delay your study progress.
