elective programme: 12 ects

Choose courses from three (3) possible elective packages to add 12 ECTS to your Common Programme. The courses of the elective packages are found in the Faculty of Teacher Education for native Flemish students and given in English. International students follow classes together with the native Dutch-speaking students. Due to potential scheduling conflicts, students can only choose courses out of one single elective package for 12 ECTS credits .  For courses with limited amount of students, we will use the “first served, first come” principle. For courses of elective package 3, “Advanced Future Skills”, special approval is needed.
