10. Transfer Credits/Fast Track

Some students are accepted for the fast track. They have taken advanced (graduate level)
courses at other universities that are accepted as "transfer credits" in the MSc Logic.
Transfer credits will only be accepted for students that are academically excellent and
perfectly prepared for our programme. Only courses relevant for the MSc Logic can be
accepted as transfer credits, and a maximum of 40 ECTS in courses can be accepted.
Students in the fast track can finish the MSc Logic in three ("semi-fast track") or two

I wish to be considered for the fast track:
