During the Spring semester all students will take three different electives in block 3, 4 and 5. We distinguish two types of electives:
- Master programme electives (MPE's): these are electives offered by the own MSc-programme.
- Master free electives (MFE's): electives offered by an MSc-programme different than the one studied by the student.
All students should complete at least two master programme electives in order to graduate from their master programme. The third elective can be either another MPE or a MFE from another programme.
Elective overview per master programme
This elective overview includes all programme and free electives and specifies which courses are open to which students.
All students can attend an elective info session for more information on electives of a particular programme or read the course description through the Course Guide.
This information will be updated soon for the academic year 2017-2018. This website will be updated by the beginning of November 2017.
Registration for the electives takes place in two different rounds. During the first round of registration, all students will be assigned to two MPE's ONLY. During the second registration round you can register for a third MPE or a MFE.
Round 1: Friday 24 November 2017 - Monday 27 November 2017; students rank all the MPE's of their master programme.
Round 2: Monday 11 December 2017 - Wednesday 13 December 2017; students will rank all the remaining electives (both MPE;s and MFE's) in their final block.
Subscribe for the MSc Programme Enrolment channel
The elective registration will be organised on the MSc Programme Enrolment channel on SIN-Online. Make sure to subscribe to this channel well in advance. The registration itself will become visible after 20 November (exact dates to be announced).
Registration procedure (more information to be announced)
Every master elective has a maximum number of spots. During the first registration round, all students need to rank all their programme electives. You give your most preferred elective ranking number 1, your second preferred elective ranking number 2 etc. etc. The total number of electives that you need to rank varies per master programme: OCC students needs to rank 5 programme electives, while FI students needs to rank 19 electives.
After this round of registration closes an algorithm will run and assign all students two programme electives in two different blocks. We will communicate the final elective allocation to you by Thursday 8 December 2016.
After 8 December 2017 you know which block you have left. For this remaining block you will need to complete a second preferential registration from 11 - 13 December 2017 where you will rank 15 of the electives in that particular block, that are (1) open to your programme and (2) not full.
Around 15 December 2017 you will get a third elective assigned.
Numbers of spaces cannot be adjusted.
This means there may not be enough room for every student for certain popular courses. Please also note that elective course instructors do not determine the number of spaces in electives, so please do not approach them about spaces in their courses.
Choose 1 elective per block
Please note that you cannot take more than one elective per block. You will need to rank all your programme electives during the first round of registration. An algorithm will assign you to two programme electives in two different blocks.
During the second registration round you will be able to rank 15 of the available electives in your last remaining block. During this round, you will also be able to rank electives from other master programmes (free electives).
The majority of master programmes will be holding elective information sessions in the weeks prior to the elective registration (end of October - Mid-November). If you are interested in hearing about the electives on offer this year, we encourage you to attend any of these informational sessions. Please see the schedule below for dates and times. No registration is necessary.

There are several moments during the year where you can adjust your original elective choices. It is not possible though to switch electives between the first and second registration round. After round 2 of the registration has been completed and every student is assigned to three electives, there will be several opportunities throughout the year where you can switch electives.
During the switch weeks, it is a first come, first serve registration, therefore you do not have to give anymore preferences.
Overview of the switch 'weeks' (dates subject to change)
Switch week after initial registration rounds: Friday 22 December 2017 - Tuesday 2 January 2018
Switch week prior to Block 3: Monday 15 January 2018 - Sunday 21 January 2018
Switch week prior to Block 4: Monday 5 March 2018 - Sunday 11 March 2018
Switch week prior to Block 5: Monday 23 April 2018 - Sunday 29 April 2018
All switch weeks will be announced through SIN-Online. Therefore, keep an eye for last-minute changes.
Please note that the switch week is the last opportunity to switch electives! After the switch week, your registration (for that block) is final, no exceptions made!
