Master Study Plan
At the start of the Master’s programme, students are required to draw up the Master Study Plan: a complete list of planned courses and projects for two subsequent academic years in consultation with the Study Advisor Astronomy. To select courses, students need to consult the course list for academic year 2016-2017 (see below), and/or the course list for academic year 2017-2018 (available in Spring 2017).
