Contract Teaching

At Nijmegen School of Management, each year more than 300 courses are taught in the Bachelor's programmes.  A large number of these courses are offered as optional courses to students from other faculties. In theory, you can take all courses from the Bachelor's programme, except the methods courses like Academic Skills, seminar projects and the Bachelor's Thesis. Even if you are not enrolled as a student at our university, you can take - if there is a place - one or two courses from our Bachelor's study programmes. Courses from the Master's degree programme are usually not accessible.

The complete selection of courses can be found in the various prospectuses published by Nijmegen School of Management. You can register for a course here.

The costs include 360 euros per course for which 6 ECs can be received (including 2 opportunities to sit an exam and a certificate upon completion, excluding the required literature). A certificate is issued if you pass the exam. You are not obligated, however, to sit the examination. You can register for a course here.

Vouchers for graduates
After graduating, students will receive three vouchers from Radboud University, enabling them to enroll in a course (free of charge). Graduates can choose from the courses listed in the various prospectuses. The vouchers can be used up until two years after graduation. Did you graduate on or after 1 October 2018? Then you can use the free study credits. More information and the regulations can be found here.

To pay the course fee that is owed, you will receive a separate invoice from the RU's Financial Administration Office once your registration has been received. This does not apply to those who have recently graduated from the Radboud University, as they can make use of the vouchers which have been granted. Graduates ‘pay’ the course fee that is owed by sending the voucher to the address stated on the application form.

Course structure
Most of the courses run for ten weeks. They consist of eight weekly session and two weeks of exams (block courses). A number of courses consist of two periods which last ten weeks (parallel courses).
Altogether, there are 48 hours of face-to-face instruction for each course, which is spread over approximately three sessions a week for a block course and one or two sessions a week for a parallel course.
If you would like to sit an exam, then you should contact the person responsible (see registration form).
