Cyber Security Governance Essentials

Admission & Application

When and how can you sign up?

The minor Cyber Security Governance Essentials is open for students with an interest in socio-technical challenges who want to delve into the technical and governance aspects of cyberspace in general and cybersecurity in particular. Some courses require knowledge or understanding of mathematics, so students should have affinity with the latter at high school level. No prior knowledge of law, public administration and governance is required.  Students are expected to have sufficient knowledge of English. 

Students from a computer science related discipline cannot be admitted to the minor.

Max number of students: 100

TU Delft, Erasmus University and LDE students can enroll from May 8 (13:00) until May 31 (13:00) 2023.

Leiden University students: May 8 (13:00) until July 15 (13:00) 2023.

An overview with all relevant information about the minors can be found on this website.

Limited number of places

Every minor has a limited number of places. These are allocated on a first come, first served basis (with the exception of TU Delft and Erasmus minors with admission requirements*). So apply on time.

Reserved spots for LDE-students

Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam collaborate closely on a range of educational matters, thus making it easy to follow a minor at TU Delft or the Erasmus University. During the application period for Leiden students TU Delft and the Erasmus University reserve a third of their minor places for Leiden University students.

Maximum of one minor

You may only apply for one minor with admission requirements. You may only apply for one TUD/EUR/LDE minor. If you are placed on a waiting list, you may apply for another Leiden minor (without admission requirements). Please note: you can only follow one minor. Are you placed on two waiting lists? Deregister from one of the two minors and apply for a different one. 

For questions about applying, contact 071 – 527 1111 or studielijn@leidenuniv.nl.

Application Process

Steps to take
Students of Leiden University, TU Delft and Erasmus University have to apply via EduXchange.

External students (from research universities as well as universities of applied sciences) can apply for just one of the Leiden minors. This is not done through eduXchange, but through the procedure described here.
