Do you need supplementary courses?
The Study Progress reform introduces significant changes in the regulations on fulfilment of the specific entry requirements with effect from the intake 2017. If you plan to apply for admission in 2017 you should not automatically assume that your qualifications will be assessed according to the same regulations and procedures that were in place for admission in 2016.
Below you will find the expected regulations for admission in 2017. You can keep yourself informed of any news about the changes on this page. 
Generally speaking supplementary courses will not be part of the assessment of your qualifications in 2017. Only courses taken as a part of your bachelor degree (mandatory and elective courses) will be taken into consideration.
A revision of the Study Progress Reform however makes it possible to use up to 30 ECTS-points of supplementary courses if the courses were either taken before you finished your bachelor degree and/or you are conditionally accepted at a graduate programme. This means that you CANNOT take supplementary courses once you have finished your bachelor degree and / or before you have received a conditional acceptance letter (mid-June). You will have to pay tuition fee for the supplementary courses. 
Please note that CBS has not yet stated the regulations for supplementary courses for graduate admission at CBS in 2017 and beyond. 

The Graduate Admission pages are currently being updated for the 2017 admission year and are subject to changes.
