The practical assignment can be done at a sports organization that we provide, but you can also propose your own sports organization. Contact us for more information.

Every sports organization puts forward a unique practical problem to solve. At the start of the semester, students will have to apply for an assignment at a sports organization: they write a letter of application and have an interview at the sports organization(s) of their preference. The sports organization chooses which students they ‘hire’ to solve the practical problem.

Subscribe? Good to know!

For popular minors a draw takes place 3 to 4 weeks after the opening, if there are at that time more subscribers than available places. For the minors with places still available applies until the closing of the subscription period: Once a minor is full, it is closed!

In addition, if the number of subscribers after three weeks is below the norm; this minor may possibly be withdrawn. So if you are interested, sign up immediately!

 

Subscribe in time!

Note: For HAN students it means that, in case of cancellation of the first choice AFTER the period of decision (this takes about three weeks) they may re-subscribe for the still available minors.

Even then: Once a minor is full, it is closed!

A good overview of the HAN minors can be found in the minors app! The app is accessible via: http://www.minoren-han.nl/
