Minor Registration FAQs 2019-2020

1. I have not passed all my minor subjects yet. Do I have to re-enrol for the same minor for the following academic year?
No, you do not have to re-enrol if you already enrolled in a previous academic year and the minor has not yet been completed. You do need a valid registration at the TU Delft for the academic year in which you want to finish your minor. Always contact the minor coordinator about completing your minor.

2. I didn't pass one of my minor subjects. The minor has since been discontinued. Is it still possible to do a retake?
You will be given at least one opportunity to retake the exam during the next academic year.

3. Are there also minors given in English?
Yes, almost all TU Delft minors are offered in English, with a few exceptions.

4. I received a five for one of the minor subjects. Can I compensate this mark with a seven from a different minor subject?
The rules state that it is not possible to pass any subject with a five. You can find this in the ‘Rules and Guidelines for Examinations’ of your Bachelor’s programme. These examination requirements are listed on the faculty’s campus website. 

5. How are the marks that I received at another university passed on to my degree programme?
You will have to request a transcript of your marks from the university in question and pass this on yourself to the Board of Examiners and the Student Administration of your degree programme.

6. May I follow a minor at a University of Applied Sciences?
In principle, this is not possible, seeing that the minor must be at a level equivalent to third-year BSc subjects. Very occasionally, a minor at a University of Applied Sciences can meet these requirements. For more information, consult the Board of Examiners of your Bachelor's degree programme.

7. I'd like to change my minor enrolment. After further consideration, I'd prefer to do a different minor. How can I arrange this?
During the registation period you can enrol or unenrol in Osiris. To unenrol from a minor after these periods, send an e-mail to minors@tudelft.nl.

8. I'd like to compile my own minor programme from TU Delft subjects. When will the lecture timetable be published, so that I can be sure no two subjects coincide?
For more information on the timetables, see tudelft.nl if there are any clashes between subjects, you can always consult with the Board of Examiners of your Bachelor's degree programme and choose an alternative.

9. I would like to do a second minor or certain components of a minor.
Students who register for their first minor take precedence over students who have already completed a minor. You will need approval from the Board of Examiners on your degree programme to take a second minor. You need to forward this approval to minors@tudelft.nl. The minor administration office will not register you for a second minor until after 14 August, providing that a place is still available.

10. Where can I find a detailed list of the minors on offer in 2019-2020?
A detailed list can be found on the ‘ List of TU Delft thematic minors’ or via this link

LDE FAQs 2019-2020

1. I am a TU Delft student and I want to do a minor at EUR. The minors at EUR are 15 ECTS, while my minor is 30 ECTS. How can I fill in the remaining 15 ECTS?
It is not possible to do two EUR minors in the same academic year. There are limited options for taking electives at EUR alongside the minor at EUR. Consequently, we advise you to fill in the remaining 15 ECTS with electives at TU Delft. You can also take electives at other universities. For filling in the remaining ECTS with electives, you need prior permission from your own Board of Examiners. You can request this permission via the ‘Free Minor Approval Request’ form . Indicate the electives as well as the EUR minor of your choice in this form. If you still want to do an elective at EUR, ensure that you find out in time about the various available options via the EUR University Guide to Elective Courses.   

2. I am a student at EUR and I want to do a minor at TU Delft. Is it possible to do a 15 ECTS minor?
TU Delft offers a number of minors of 15 EC in 2019-2020. See the TU Delft offer for this. Then look at the admission matrix whether you are admissible for one of these minors
