Would you like to change your current study programme or your study subjects? This page contains all important information you need to know:

What is the difference between a change of programme and a change of subject?

change of programme is when you want to change degree programmes (e.g. from a BSc in Architecture to a BA in Political Science). A change of subject is when you want to change one of your subjects on the same two-subject Bachelor’s degree programme.  

HOW CAN I CHANGE PROGRAMMES OR SUBJECTS?

To change programmes or subjects, you must reapply, taking into account the usual application periods. If the new degree programme is admission-free, it will be easy to undertake the change. In the case of restricted admission degree programmes, you will take part in the selection procedure alongside all other applicants. Unfortunately, it is not possible to simply undertake a change in registration based on your existing enrolment. Please use the online application portal for your reapplication.

Your change in registration can only be undertaken once you have been allocated a place on the new degree programme within the selection procedure. Until this point, you will remain enrolled on the degree programme that you initially chose, and will reregister as usual. If the change cannot take place and you no longer want to continue studying, you may terminate your registration up to one month after lectures begin.
