About à la carte education

In à la carte education, you join a regular series of lectures without taking the exam. At the end you receive a participation certificate, which does not contain any study results (as no exam was taken).

At the beginning of each academic year, a set range of courses is determined for à la carte education. Should you be interested in another course than the ones described in the list, contact the coordinator of studies of the relevant programme.

Courses that are part of a master’s programme (MA) are never eligible for à la carte education.

Is it possible to take the exam?

If you have a pre-university education (or equivalent) diploma, you can attend these courses and complete them by taking an exam. You enrol as a contract student.

Contract teaching also involves joining a regular series of lectures. However, after the series of lectures you do take the exam, just like regular students. Study results you obtained are saved and may lead to an exemption if you decide to do the entire study programme. This form of education is especially suitable for people who do not yet know whether a programme fits their interests.
