Uitgebreide vaknaam Flexible Component 3
Omschrijving The flexible component allows the students to specialize into a specific direction, but also to combine different elements both within and outside the Research Master programme. Students can choose out of the following:

a. Taught courses 10 ECTS
Students can choose to follow a MA course in Archaeology (10 ECTS), or (RE)MA courses at another Department in the University of Groningen, or at another University.
Please keep in mind: The Archaeology MA courses are given in Dutch, and address mostly the situation in the Netherlands.

b. Tutorials 2 x 5 ECTS, or 1 x 10 ECTS
Tutorials allow students to specialize in a topic of their own choice under the supervision of a member of staff. Tutorial need to be approved by the Director of Studies and the Board of Examiners.
Please note: It is possible to follow a BA course in order to acquire basic skills, which were not provided by your BA – but these can only be taken as part of a Tutorial which will also contain an assignment at REMA level agreed upon with the lecturer giving the course.

c. External tutorial / placement 10 ECTS
An external research tutorial or placement is highly recommended for home students, but optional for foreign students. It has to be stressed that placements for Research Master students have to make a clear contribution to the development of their research competences and experience; the aim is not only to ease their way into the job market or to expand their network.

d. Study abroad 30 ECTS
Students can spend one semester (ideally their 3rd semester) abroad at one of the Universities we have Erasmus exchanges with. This need to be discussed with and approved by the DoS in good time. Please note: Application for an Erasmus position has to be prepared already in the first semester!
