Common Part

RO-1: Choose one course.
RO-2: Choose this course after consultation with your study adviser. RO-3: Choose a maximum of two courses if these or equivalent courses have not been part of your BSc-programme.
RO-4: The data science courses are optional, they are not specifically linked to any of the specialisations.
RO-5: Choose in consultation and agreement with your study adviser either RO-5A (focus on consultancy and business) or RO-2B (focus on research proposal writing and funding):
- If you select RO-5A, choose AMC60809 and choose 3 credits worth of Modular Skills Training courses (MOS).
