Extra electives

In addition to the 24 ECTS for electives, you may have the opportunity to take extra electives at FPN, at other UM faculties, at other Dutch universities, or at an FPN partner university abroad. 

The extra electives will be noted as "extracurricular courses" on your FPN grade transcript. 
Additional electives can enhance your academic journey, but it is vital they match your programme goals and fulfill specific criteria:
