Courses

 The course offer for the academic year 2014/2015 will be posted at the beginning of May. Until then, you can base your preliminary selection on the course offer in 2013-2014.

Before choosing your courses read the following information carefully. 

Course load
Utrecht University uses ECTS credits (ECTS: European Credit Transfer
System). Almost all courses at the Faculty of Social Sciences are worth 7,5 ECTS. A full-time student will typically take 30 ECTS per semester. Each semester is divided into two blocks.

Timeslots
Utrecht University works with timeslots. Timeslots divide the week in dif-
ferent parts to prevent a clash in course times. Per block you should select 
courses in different timeslots. It is NOT possible to choose courses that are scheduled in the same timeslot. If two timeslots are indicated for one course, that means that the course is scheduled in both timeslots.
