Courses and minors open for secondary course students
Almost all our courses and minors are open for secondary course students as long as you meet the entry requirements. In the study guide you can see if a course has entry requirements. If you are unsure whether you meet the entry requirements shown, you should contact the coordinator of the course. 

Admission requirements
For courses at Bachelor level and our minors you should have a VWO diploma or equivalent with mathematics A or B, for Econometrics and Operations Research or Data Science a VWO diploma or equivalent with mathematics B. For courses at Master level you need to have a BSc degree. Besides that you also need to meet the entry requirements for the courses.

Once you are fully registered as a secondary course student, you are able to sign up for the courses you selected in register.vu.nl. Please keep in mind the deadlines to sign up for courses when applying as a secondary course student. If the deadline for signing up for that period has passed it won’t be able to follow the courses.
