Minors & electives

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) offers a number of minors and electives for students not enrolled at the UvA. Choose one of the links below to explore your options.


With a minor – a set of courses worth 15 to 60 ECTS credits – you can tailor your study programme and expand your knowledge in another field or interdisciplinary theme. You can also choose to increase your depth of knowledge by taking a specialised minor in your own field.


Students who are not enrolled at the UvA can take elective courses by enrolling as a guest student. Enrolling as a guest student is only applicable to students from outside the UvA. Students who are currently enrolled in a regular degree programme at the UvA do not have to re-enrol as a guest student to register for elective courses.
