Electives Media & Communication

Below is the list of undergraduate courses available in 2022-2023. More information on the content of the course can be found by searching for the course code (CMxxxx) in the EUR Course Catalogue. Please note that IBCoM's education is based on small interactive classes - therefore capacity is limited and attendance to almost all courses is mandatory. All courses are worth 5 EC.

Please note that this page is for:

  • Exchange students from other faculties than ESHCC
  • Students that do not study IBCoM but other programmes at EUR and want to take an IBCoM course as an elective. Please carefully check the requirements for taking IBCoM courses as an elective for your study programme.

Please note that there are some requirements:

  • Only students from English-taught EUR study programmes with an enrolment for the current Academic Year can sign up for our courses. The only exceptions to this are ESHCC students from Dutch programmes and Bedrijfskunde students. Students from other Dutch-taught programmes do not have access to our courses.
  • Students from outside of EUR have no access to our courses (such as external Minor students).
  • You can sign up for a maximum of two courses per term.


For enquiries, please note the following:

  • Use your EUR student email to contact university- we cannot process emails sent form personal external email addresses.
  • Please do not ask for access to our courses if you do not meet the requirements listed at the top of this page; there are no exceptions to what's already explained on this page.

You can reach us at ibcomstudents@eshcc.eur.nl.

Procedure (read and follow carefully!)

As soon as the registration period opens, you will be able to fill out a form on OSIRIS by going to OSIRIS > Case > Start new case > ESHCC IBCoM Studyplan / Course Registrations. In this form you will be asked to indicate how many courses you want to take, and to list your course interests. The procedure is first come, first serve. Make sure you carefully check the schedules of your course interests to make sure they don’t overlap with each other or with other courses you’re taking.

A few days after the deadline has passed, you will receive an email with the course(s) that has been assigned to you. Please be patient; we work as fast as we can to get you your courses.

If a course has multiple groups you will be placed in a group automatically. You will receive instructions for how to switch to a different group. However, we cannot guarantee that there is room to move to another group.

Dropping or adding courses

If you changed your mind about your courses after getting them assigned, you can drop courses by sending an e-mail to ibcomstudents@eshcc.eur.nl. However, you cannot change them to other courses. To add courses, you need to follow the Late Registration Procedure.

Late Registration Procedure

If you have missed the deadline for course registrations, you can still join Late Registrations, which takes place in specific periods. 

This procedure is handled by the faculty's Education Office, located at Van der Goot Building, M7.

During the Late Registration Period you can visit them at the desk at Van Der Goot Building M7-31. Before visiting make sure you have prepared a list of courses you are interested in. As courses may already be full, make sure you have a list of back-up courses! You can only do this within the dates and timeslots indicated below! Outside of those hours Late Registrations are not possible. Email requests are not processed.

Please note that the procedure is first come, first serve, and that Late Registrations are an exception for those who miss the original deadline. Missing Late Registrations means no access to IBCoM's courses - we can't make exceptions to exceptions. Thank you for your understanding.
