Practical matters minors

Would you like to know more about minors? Check the following practical matters:

You can follow a minor at the beginning of your third bacheloryear. A minor is a coherent package of subjects/courses, with which you specialize or broaden your horizon.

At the EUR we offer both broadening and deepening minor. For students from Leiden University and TU Delft only the broadening minors are available. Click here for more information about the minors we offer at the EUR. Click here for more information about how to apply.

The minor education is, based on the level of education and time spent, specially designed for third year bachelor students.

The minor education is taught in the first 10 weeks of the academic year. This means that the minor period at the EUR is from September till the beginning of November. Resits are in the summer (beginning of July).

The minor education at the TU Delft is offered in the first 20 weeks of the academic year. At the University of Leiden the education can take place during the whole academic year. Please check the schedules from the minors in Leiden and Delft and the LDE-minors in order to avoid overlap with compulsory courses in your bachelor's degree.

Minors at the EUR are 15 EC. There are some exceptions: the Educational minors Economy, Math and History and the minor Geneeskunde for Technische Studenten. These are 30 EC. Following a minor requires a full-time commitment (40 hours per week) during the first 10 weeks of the academic year. It is not possible to follow other courses during this period

Minors at the TU Delft are 30 EC.

Minors at Leiden University are 30 EC, most minors are also available in a 15 EC version.

The rules of the attended faculty apply to a minor. These are included in the Teaching and Examination Regulations (TER) and the Rules and Regulations (R&R) of the relevant faculty.

Example When you follow a minor from ESL, the TER and R&R from ESL are applicable.

At the EUR, the schedules will be announced late July or at the beginning of August. You can find the schedule of your minor at

All education and examination will be in the first 10 weeks of the academic year. Resits are in the summer.

For the schedule of alle LDE-minor courses and minors from Leiden University and TU Delft, please contact the relevant institute.

When you follow a minor in Leiden or Delft (not an LDE-minor), you need to register your grade at the EUR yourself.
Request an certified study progress overview from Leiden or Delft. Ask the Department for Examination Administration for your programme to register your results at EUR. Most Departments for Examination Administration are located in the Sanders Building. If you do not know where your Department for Examination Administration is located, you can ask your faculty’s Education Office or your study advisor.

* ESE-students have to submit a request via OSIRIS to incorporate this minor. This request must be supplemented with an official grade list from the receiving institution.

The grades for LDE-minors are exchanged between the three universities. You do not need to take action in order for the grade to be registered in OSIRIS.

A partial result from a minor is valid for 1 academic year. If you do not complete the minor with a sufficient grade within that academic year, the partial results are no longer valid.

All minors are taught in the same period. Following a minor requires a full-time commitment (40 hours per week) during the first 10 weeks of the academic year. Therefore, it is not possible to follow to two minors at the same time.

If you did not complete your minor with a sufficient grade, you can reapply for a minor in May. You can register a maximum of 5 minor preferences, and you can include your current minor as one of them. Be advised: there is no guarantee that you will be placed on the same minor.
