Bachelor Level Course List faculty of Earth and Life Sciences 2012/2013

You can check the course description through this link.

September 2011 the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences has started with eight Minors completely offered in English. Exchange student can apply for a whole minor and receive a Minor certificate when all courses have successfully been completed. When more information is available on the Minors/courses we will add the right links to these pages. The minors will be offered during 1st (autumn) semester.

Please note that there is a possibility a Minor will not be offered if there is not enough interest in the program! Therefore, it very important to communicate to us which minor a student would like to follow no later than April 1st.

Please note that only the Minor "Brain & Mind" is open to all students regardless of educational background.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In case you do not pass an exam for the courses offered in September/October, re-sits will be offered at the beginning of January. In case you do not pass an exam for the courses offered in November, December or January, re-sits will be offered at the end of June/beginning of July. This means that students who only attend courses first semester, might have to come back in summer in case they need to do a re-sit!

Unfortunately, we will not offer any courses for exchange students during second (summer) semester. It will however be possible for students to do an internship.
