New available places

Because of our collaboration with TU Delft and Leiden University, we have reserved places in the EUR-minors for students from these universities. However, not all of these places were filled. This means that some minors will be open again for EUR-students from 7 June. Be aware that this is not the case for all minors. Per minor places will be made available, this will be done during the day. 

For minors that were full before 7 June, places could become available.
If you wish to register for a different minor, you have to deregister in OSIRIS for the minor you are currently enrolled in, before enrolling in the other one.

Please be aware: it could be the case that another student fills your original spot, after you have deregistered, while in the meantime the new minor of your choice is full.

Did you register for a minor in Leiden or Delft? Then you can change or deregister in OSIRIS Student until 31 May at 23:59h. After this date registering for a minor in Leiden or Delft is no longer possible. Deregistration after this deadline is only possible by contacting the minor coordination through the FAQ's in ASK Erasmus. Please note that it may take up to five 5 business days to process your request.

Register personally

We would like to emphasize that the registration for a minor has to be done personally. Robotization of your registration (e.g. writing a script) will not only have consequences for your registration, but also for the registration of your fellow students.

Cancel your minor?

If you decide to cancel your minor, for example because you are going on exchange or you’ve found an internship position, please remember to deregister for the minor. Deregistration is only possible by contacting the minor coordination via the 'Contact' button in the FAQ's in ASK Erasmus. Please mention the title of the minor and we will deregister you in OSIRIS.
