Study plan rules
- The academic plan includes 12 credits for elective activities. To this end, students can select courses organised for this and other degree programmes of this Faculty and the University in general, or opt for other educational activities that can be measured in credits. These can be seminars, conferences, refresher courses and other activities organised by this University or another entity, provided that they are congruent with the study programme. Normally, a maximum of 4 credits can be awarded for this kind of activities, which must be approved beforehand by the Academic Board. For information on how to obtain credits for such activities, students have to contact their tutor. For students pursuing a Master's degree in Crops and Plant Sciences, the Academic Board notably recommends the elective courses specified in the table below. The programme offers two alternative curricula. Therefore, students may select as elective activities courses included in the curriculum that they have not chosen. The following courses are particularly recommended to students who have opted for the Plant Biotechnology curriculum:
- Basic statistics and experimental design
- Plant breeding
