Minors Rotterdam or Leiden (LDE)
A minor also gives you the unique opportunity to broaden your horizon at other universities. For instance, you could choose a minor at one of our partner universities: Leiden University or Erasmus University Rotterdam. Apply for a minor at Leiden or Erasmus University between 1 and 31 May via their online application forms.
Next to a minor in the LDE cooperation, you can also choose a special LDE-minor with a socially relevant topic. In these interdisciplinary minors, lecturers from Leiden, Delft and Rotterdam jointly provide education. If you opt for an LDE minor, you will follow education in the three cities with students from all three universities. In this academic year, the following LDE minors are offered:
Minors at the EUR constitute to 15 EC in total. TU Delft students are obliged to complete 30 EC during their minor period. The options for doing electives at EUR are extremely limited and it is not possible to do two EUR minors. Consequently, we advise you to fill in the remaining 15 EC with electives at TU Delft. To do so you need prior permission from your Board of Examiners. On the 'Flexible Minor Request’ form, fill in the electives and the EUR minor of your choice.
If you do wish to take electives at EUR, it is your responsibility to make the necessary arrangements. Check the University Guide to Elective Courses for the procedure that applies to each faculty. If you are placed for a selection minor at TU Delft, your enrolment for a minor at EUR is automatically cancelled.
The minors at Leiden University are 30 EC. However, the courses in the minors are not clustered in the first semester like in Delft. In the e.Studiegids of Leiden University you'll find a description of each minor and its courses. In the course description you're linked to the timetable page of each faculty. Here you can find when a course is taught. When in doubt or if you have any questions, contact the person listed at the minor in the e.Studiegids. If you are placed for a selection minor at TU Delft, your enrolment for a minor at Leiden University is automatically cancelled.
