Contract Education SBE

The School of Business and Economics provides interested parties with the opportunity to take courses in our Bachelor's or Master's programmes through contract education.

Successfully completing a course will provide you with a certificate.

More information

  • Courses

    You can find more information on the courses in the study guides on our website

  • Capacity

    Contract students take classes alongside regular students and may sit the final examination. Classes will mostly take place during the day.

  • Offer

    Contract students may not register for theses, work placements and skills courses (Academic Skills, language test). Both pre-master's and part-time courses are not available for contract students.

  • Costs

    The costs are €100 per ECTS credit, for which you will receive an invoice. Please pay this invoice within 30 days. If you fail to pay within this period, you will be deregistered and you will still be obliged to pay. Payment in instalments is not possible. You will automatically receive an invoice regarding the courses you have enrolled in. If you are taking courses in various periods and you wish to spread the costs, you may decide to re-enroll for your chosen courses ahead of each new period. These costs cover participating in classes, being supervised by a lecturer, using computer facilities and taking interim and final examinations or resits resulting in a single final mark and receiving a certificate of participation.

    The contract applies to the academic year in which the course is offered. Participants who wish to achieve a passing final mark by retaking the course in a following year must conclude a new contract and pay the corresponding costs. You may cancel your enrollment no later than ten working days before the start of the course. After this date, you will no longer be eligible for a refund of the course fee. If you cancel in time, you will be charged €50 in administrative costs.

    Please note: since the Dutch government does not regard contract students as regular (Studielink) students, you are not eligible for a study loan and/or public transport card from the Dutch government for the duration of the requested courses. 

  • Registration for contract education

    People my enroll by completing the registration form and sending it to the email address stated on the form together with the required attachments. They will receive an invoice as soon as the application has been received.

  • Application deadlines

    The deadline for signing up for contract education runs concurrently with the registration periods for courses. These can be found on the site of the registration and deregistration deadlines.

    As a contract student, you cannot enroll for courses yourself. Instead we will do this for you after the invoice has been paid.

    The invoice must be paid before the registration deadline of the course period. After that it is no longer possible to participate in courses in that period.

    Semester 1 contains periods 1,2 and 3.

    Semester 2 contains periods 4, 5 and 6.
