It is possible for Research Master (ReMA) students at a Dutch university to follow courses and seminars at ReMA programmes at other Dutch universities, often without extra costs. Three points of attention:
- If you wish to register for a course/seminar at another university, you need a secondary enrollment at that university. More information
- Note that students should check with the Examinations Committee of their programme for final confirmation that these courses can be counted towards graduation. More information
- For some students (e.g. non EU students) an additional fee may be charged for following courses at other Dutch universities.

Registration Form for a Course at another University
The OZSW facilitates exchange between philosophy Research Master courses in the Netherlands. The form below is primarily meant for ReMa students who would like to follow a course at another university, but are awaiting proof of registration from their home (primary) university. Please indicate which course you want to follow and you will receive a course program, time, location and required course preparations from the course coordinator. It is your own responsibility to formally register (through a ‘neveninschrijving’ or secondary enrollment) at your visiting university once you have received proof of acceptance at your home university.
