Non-examination courses

As a non-examination student you can join our introductory courses without taking part in the course assignments and without taking the exam.

At the end you receive a participation certificate, which does not contain any study results (as no exam was taken).

The admission requirements for non-examination teaching are similar to the legal admission requirements for the regular programme. This means that you should have:

  • A completed bachelor’s or master’s degree from a university (of applied sciences) in a relevant discipline
  • Adequate proficiency in the English language (as the programme is taught in English).
  • Several years of relevant professional experience

The payment should be received by us no later than 30 days before the start of the course. If this deadline is not met, we cannot guarantee timely registration. Payments by instalments or a one-off direct debit are not possible.

Cancellation is possible until two weeks before the start of the course.  

In the event of cancellation after the deadline, the following administration costs are charged:

All our courses require you to do some (background) reading. This usually includes readers and/or materials uploaded to the online learning environment Brightspace. In general no books will need to be purchased.

After completing the course(s) you receive a certificate. The lecturer will present you with the certificate in the final lecture, or it will be sent to your home address after the course. The certificate is only awarded if your attendance was sufficient. This is determined by the lecturer(s) by means of an attendance list. The certificate contains no study results or assessment, since non-examination students do not take any exams.
