Common Part

This common part is not applicable for specialisation E.

Choose 1 cluster from RO-1 and RO-2, either focussing on consultancy or research training. Take into account:
- 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.
- RO-1: Choose YMC60809 and 1 or more additional courses, YMC-60300 can be replaced for YMC-60400 with 6 credits of skills training
- RO-2: Note that YWU-60312 has specific prerequisites and is to be planned after the MSc thesis.

RO-3: In consultation with the study adviser, students either choose an internship or a second thesis of at least 24 credits from the chair groups mentioned. In general students with a professional Bachelor degree should opt for a second thesis, while students with an academic Bachelor degree should opt for an internship.
The FQD internship is specifically linked to specialization D and F.
