Selected Topic

During the master's, students have the opportunity to replace a maximum of two elective modules with scientific papers and/or external modules. Find information on these options below. 

Scientific Paper

Under the supervision of a professor, students may choose to write a scientific paper, a so-called Selected Topic Paper, instead of attending an elective. The research topic must be approved by the director of the programme and the supervising professor. The paper does not need not be completed within the same three week time frame as the elective module it is substituting, though a schedule for completion ought to be approved by the supervising professor. The application form (see link below) must be submitted to the examination office before you start working on your paper.

External Module

External modules can be recognised as "Selected Topic" and substitute an elective module. Both workload and academic requirements have to be comparable to modules in the MEG programme. Please contact the programme director for approval of the external module. It will only be recognised if approval is given prior to class attendance.
