You can no longer take supplementary courses between a bachelor and master

From September 1st 2014 new rules apply to the supplementary-field. In the assessment of the basis of your admission to the master’s program you are applying for, only your bachelor- or professional bachelor’s degree apply. This means that you can no longer take supplementary courses between a bachelor- and master's degree to satisfy the specific admission requirements.

If you are in doubt about the new rules, or if you have questions about your possibilities for supplementing your study programme, you can contact a study and career guidance counsellor in SCIENCE Student Services.
