From September 2009, Leiden bachelor’s students can complete the electives for their particular programme, which may vary from 30 to 15 study points depending on the department, with:
- one minor
- electives (local, national, international)
- an internship in the Netherlands or abroad
This allows students to add specific elements of their choice to their programme or to broaden the programme.
A minor is a cohesive package of subjects worth 30 study points. Leiden offers 49 different minors. Most of these are accessible to all students; a few minors at the Science Faculty have admission criteria. In terms of level, minor education is primarily suitable for third-year bachelor’s students. Students who choose to do so, can always complete their electives with a minor subject; permission of the Board of Examiners is generally not required. Students can read in the Course and Examination Regulation about what is and what is not allowed and in what permission from the Board of Examiners is required.
More information in English will be made available shortly.
