The personal tutor guides the student in finding a research minor that fits with the PDP. The student is responsible for finding and applying for a minor research placement. During the research minor, the student is supervised by a workplace supervisor and a lecturer from the HAN.

Subscribe? Good to know!
- For minors starting in September, after the registration period in March, a draw takes place in April if there are at that time more subscribers than available places.
- For minors starting in February, after the registration period in October, a draw takes place in November 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In addition, if the number of subscribers after four weeks is below the norm; this minor may possibly be withdrawn. So if you are interested, sign up immediately!

Subscribe in time!

For HAN students it means that, in case of cancellation of the first choice AFTER the period of decision (this takes a full month) 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/

A minor must deepen or broaden the focus and have no large overlap with the major. A research minor is not an internship, as the internship is a part of the major.

The aim of the research minor is therefore to focus on something new, and what has not (yet) been covered in the major. The research minor therefore consists of a theoretical component (min. 4 study points = 4x28 SBU) and a practical component where you apply what you have learned. The total duration is 20 weeks (30 credits).

The theoretical component can take the form of a literature review, but can also be implemented in a different way for example by a course (MOOC) or EEU of minimally 4 study points.

The research minor may be completed at the same location as the internship/graduation internship. However, the research minor remains an independent study unit. It must meet the requirements as described and will be assessed independently from the internship.

Carrying out scientific research

Propaedeutical year must be successfully completed. At least 50 EC have been earned in the 2nd study year and the practical assessment in the 2nd study year must be at least satisfactory.

If the research minor follows the internship or graduation project, a prerequisite for starting is that the research report of the preceding internship or graduation project has been submitted to the supervisor and the portfolio assessed as satisfactory (with the exception of the research report).

If the student does not fulfil the prerequisites, a request for exemption and permission to follow the research minor may submitted to the Examination Board.
