    1. Check the requirements of your own study program to include an elective course in your exam program, for example the level of the course or the number of EC. You can ask your study advisor for advice.
    2. Check the faculty websites for the possibilities (see links in the left menu). It is possible that requirements are set or that the number of places is limited.
    3. Once you have made your choice, request permission from your own Examination Board. You need the permission to include the course in your own exam program.

    4. You must provide a proof of tuition fee payment for your own university and a written statement from the examination board of your own study program that shows that the elective course(s) are a part of your exam program or study plan. You will then be exempt from paying tuition fee. Please note; if you are enrolled as a master student and you want to follow a bachelor elective course at the EUR, then you need a bachelor enrolment for which you pay the institutional fee (because you already obtained a bachelor degree). This usually involves high costs.
