Language of instruction:
The modular skills training teaches skills that are necessary for graduates to function in jobs at MSc level. In consultation with the MSc study advisor an assessment can be made on which skills (competencies) are already mastered and which are necessary to develop further. Based on this, you select modules to a total of 3 credit points (or 6 credit points).
It is important for students to reach an agreement with their study adviser about which and how many modules to follow, at a very early stage in the MSc programme. Once you both agreed on which modules to take, you should register as soon as possible at SSC online for each of the modules chosen. (There is no need nor possibility to register for YMC 60300 or YMC 60400, since these are only umbrella codes).
In the MOS we make a distinction between two categories of modules.
More information on each of the modules can be found under the respective course codes and chair groups. (Between brackets)
