External participants


External participants

Under certain conditions and subject to approval by the Director of Graduate Studies, individuals not affiliated to one of the partners in the BDS research master program are welcome to attend BDS courses.
External participants pay € 2,250 for a core course (one block of 8 weeks including one exam week) and € 1,750 for a field course (one block of 8 weeks including one exam week).

Prospective external participants register for courses by filling out the registration form. Please include your CV and a transcript of relevant earlier coursework, with grades. External applicants will only be admitted if they meet some equivalent of the course entrance criteria. Capacity restrictions apply to all courses, and are particularly relevant for core courses.

Deadline for registration is three weeks before the start of the block in which the course is scheduled (deadline for a block I course: August 10).
In case of withdrawal from a course: notify courses@businessdatascience.nl by email asap but no later than the Sunday after the first lecture (all BDS courses except intensive field courses). Fees will be charged in case of late withdrawal.
