We advise you to follow the standard package of 30 credits per year so you can complete the Bachelor’s program in six years and the Master’s program in four years. Taking a larger (for example full-time) or smaller study package (with a minimum of three courses a year) can be discussed.

Examination is mainly done through written assignments and student presentations. Oral or written examinations are planned at one occasion during the examination periods in January and June and, if necessary, in August (re-examinations).


The Bachelor’s program is mainly taught in Dutch. During the meeting days, English will regularly be the language of communication. Similar to the residential Master’s program, and the non-residential PhD program, the Master’s program in ETF Open University is internationally oriented. As such, courses are taught in English.
