If you want to take a module/course which is not listed in the list of approved
courses/modules, please request approval BEFORE you start the course/module (list of
approved courses/modules and approval form can be found on our website)

If you want to take an additional elective module for your Minor
(taking only a part of an elective module is not possible), you need to inform the contact person for the respective module in writing BEFORE the start of the module. If your request is NOT rejected in written form within 4 weeks, the module counts as
approved for the Minor. You will receive a pass/fail for this module. You CANNOT use it afterwards as a normal elective module. You can also NOT rededicate an elective that you have already started as your Minor.

Bachelor level courses are NOT acceptable. Note that Bachelor level courses can be
listed in some Master programmes (e.g. Master of Education). This does not qualify a
Bachelor level course for the Minor module.

It is your responsibility to ask the teacher whether you can take part.
