Common Part

Students with (supervised) work experience on an academic level may exchange the internship for a second thesis in consultation with your study adviser.
Note 1: Students may apply for the EIT label (European Institute of Technology) in the area of Climate Innovation. This label is awarded if specific admission requirements are met and after completing extra-curricular study activities such as attending a summer school and a series of seminars.
Note 2: Students may apply for the AMS label (Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, www.ams-amsterdam.com ) in the area of Metropolitan Issues. This label is awarded if specific requirements with regard to the thesis are met and after completing specific study activities such as attending a summer school or a series of seminars.
Ask your study adviser for information on EIT-label and AMS-label.
RO1: Choose RO1A or RO1B or RO1C in consultation with your study adviser.
YMC-60300 is an 'umbrella' code. Instead, choose and register for 3 credits worth of modular skills (MOS) courses. For an overview of possible MOS courses please see under YMC-60300 in the study handbook.
