Content should not overlap or only minimally with mandatory courses of the FPN bachelor program
Content should be related to the objectives of the FPN bachelor program
Electives must be approved by the FPN Board of Examiners



Send a request for approval by the FPN Board of Examiners via Ask Psychology, at least 6 weeks before the course starts (for contact details see page 3).

1. Your name and ID number
2. Period in which the elective will take place
3. Code, title and a brief description of the elective course (in Dutch or English)
4. The level of the course

You will receive a response from the FPN Board of Examiners within 4 weeks after the request via Ask Psychology in your emailbox.
