Electives for non-Psychology students and students from other Dutch universities
A number of courses in the Psychology program are open to non-psychology students from other programs at Leiden University and students from other research universities or universities of applied science. They can take these courses as an elective student. A student taking psychology courses as an elective student should keep in mind:

  • Many of these courses have admission criteria.

  • If a course comprises lectures and mandatory work group sessions, all students, including the non-Psychology students, are required to attend the work groups.

  • For each course there is a maximum number of participants. As Psychology students can also register for these courses, this means that the number of places available for students taking these courses as electives is limited.

Registering for electives

  • Students from other programmes at Leiden University: register via uSis. Registration information for psychology courses is available here.

  • Students from other universities/universities of applied science (HBO institutions) who wish to take an elective within the Psychology programme:
    apply via the Student Services Centre
    or download: Application for admission.
    These students should send with their application their ‘Statement on no objection’. Applicants should first have this statement completed by their own university/HBO institution and should then submit the statement to the Student Services Centre, so that the Psychology study adviser can assess the application. The Student Services Centre will return the signed statement to the student. The student should then sent an original statement of payment, the application form for optional subject students and the statement of no objection to Plexus student administration. The student will be enrolled at Leiden University as a guest student, and will be given a student identity number. This gives the student access to Blackboard.

More about regulations for elective courses

  • Make sure you are admissable in the course, by checking the entry requirements of the course in the e-Prospectus

  • If you have any questions about the system of electives, please contact the Student Services Centre

  • If you are not a student and you wish to take one or more electives at the Psychology department, please see: Contractual enrolment

  • If you are a Psychology student and you want to take electives outside Psychology, please go to: Elective credits

Request permission to take electives (in uSis)

If you would like to use courses given from another programme toward your 30ec of elective requirement you must always request permission in uSis to do so. This request must be completed at least three weeks before the course begins so that you will know if the request is approved before the start of the course.
All elective courses must be applied for and registered in uSis. If the request is approved, the course will be added to your elective course requirements. Requests to take electives which have course content which overlaps with the content of courses given by the Institute of Psychology will not be approved. Please carefully review the course description before submitting a request.
Instructions on how to request permission to take elective courses offered by another institution of Leiden University:
1. In uSis go to 'view my advisement raport’ under ‘My Academics’;
2. Under the heading “Psychology: electives from other programmes”, click on one of the ‘dummy subject’ (e.g. “electives from other programme”);
3. Select "submit request" and then choose "replacement" in the drop- down menu of “petition type” then click "continue";
4. Complete the details of the course which you wish to replace;
5. Click on submit.
A successfully completed elective course will be automatically included in your study requirements.
Instructions on how to request permission to take elective courses offered by other Dutch or foreign universities:
1. In uSis go to 'view my advisement rprt’ under ‘My Academics’;
2. Under the heading “Psychology: electives from other programmes”, click on one of the ‘dummy subject’ (e.g. “electives from other programme”);
3. Select "submit request" and then choose " external education" in the drop- down menu of “petition type” then click "continue";
4. Complete the details of the course which you wish to replace;
5. Click on submit.
After completing the elective course you must request written proof of the course and exam grade which is signed and certified by the university where you have followed the course. This must be submitted to the Student Services Centre.
Note: For a correct entry on your degree, you must supply the English (and Dutch, if applicable) titles of the relevant electives!
