Master related curriculum courses

Admission to a specific master requires you to follow a course related to that master. If you want to keep your options open as to which master you want to be admitted to after the pre-master you will need to follow the compulsory course(s) for each specialisation you are interested in. Minimal credits: 4 – 6 EC. 

In addition to the compulsory course(s) of the pre-master programme most masters recommend that you follow an extra course. This optional course is meant to give you some extra, in-depth knowledge in the master of your choice.
