Join-in courses 2021-2022

Join-in courses are MA-courses in medieval topics given in set MA-programs of the six participant universities of the Research School. On request, such courses are accessible to MA-students from other (Dutch) universities. Course loads and number of credit points to be obtained are usually between 5 and 10 ECTS. The Research School does not award ECTS credits for join-in courses nor does it issue certificates for such courses. Accordingly, join-in courses do not count towards the 10 ECTS which students are required to take with the Research School.
