Contract students are invited to participate in an Introduction Day organised by the International Relations Office in the week before the semester starts (end of August and end of January).
Cancellation and course switching
Cancellation is only possible until three weeks before the start of the course or skill. The fee will then be refunded, taking into account €50 administrative costs. No refunding is possible after this date. Switching to another course is only possible before the registration deadlines indicated before.
If you are registered as a contract student, subsidiary student or PhD student, you have the right to follow the courses agreed on. You will receive access to EleUM (UM’s electronic learning environment) as well as a temporary email account and UM card. You can also take exams and do assignments; however, this type of enrolment cannot lead to the award of a degree. If you pass an exam, you will receive approx. 6 weeks after the course is finished a certificate. This type of enrolment gives you no right to financial assistance from the Dutch government (studiefinanciering).
