More about studying one course at a time
Admitted to one term at a time
Freestanding courses are an excellent option if you do not wish to study an entire training programme but still want to study aiming at a degree within our disciplines. Since you are admitted to one term at a time, it is a good way to try out what it feels like to study and see if our subjects suit you.
Some more advantages
- you can design your very own training program and study towards an exam with a unique profile
- you decide your course of study
- you have the opportunity to access the exact knowledge you need for your continued professional life or your personal skills
From 7.5 to 30 credits
