We’re here to help with questions about following a minor at TU Delft. In case you have any questions that are not answered in this FAQ, please visit


Specific admission requirements are explained in the description of each minor here on eduXchange. There you will also find whether it is a selection or non-selection minor. In addition, please note that some study programmes only allow you to choose from a limited number of minors. This differs per university and per programme. How this works, and when it is best to ask permission from your examination board, is explained on the minor website of your own university. Go to minorwebsite Leiden, minorwebsite Delft or minorwebsite Erasmus.

Registration and deregistration

This year, registration for students from Delft, Leiden and Erasmus universities is via eduXchange.

Make sure you create an eduID first. You can see how to do this in this ‘Video How to create an eduID’ and this ‘Manual How to create an eduID’ (PDF). Make sure to create your eduID before the registration date. This can be done today and will take only 5 minutes.

Once the application is open, you can register via eduXchange in a few simple steps. You can see how to do this in this ’Video Getting started with eduXchange’, and in this ’Manual Getting started with eduXchange’ (PDF).

For a selection minor, you will find the selection criteria in the minor description. For a non-selection minor, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

For selection minors, you can register from 2 (13.00 hrs) and 15 April.

For non-selection minors, you can apply from May 15 (13.00 hrs) and 31 August. In May, the three universities keep places reserved for students from the partners. The registration period is listed in the minor description page. More information on the registration periods can be found on the minor website of your own university (Leiden, Delft of Erasmus).

If many students want to register at the same time, you will enter a queue after clicking ‘Register’. You will see how many people are in front of you and how long you will have to wait.

When it’s your turn, you will have 10 minutes to register using your eduID. If you do not register within 10 minutes, you will lose your place in the queue. If your preferred minor is full, you can register for another one straight away. Watch the video Explore & register for your minor via eduXchange to see how it works, or check the Manual Explore & register for your minor via eduXchange.

You cannot deregister via eduXchange. Cancelling your registration needs to be done via the university where you registered for a minor. If you are registered for a minor at TU Delft, check the minor website Delft on how to proceed.

If you are unable to deregister, please contact the TU Delft via the FAQ page on the minor website. Please mention your TU Delft student number, your name and the minor you want to deregister for. Processing may take up to 5 working days.


First of all, read in the minor description what the start and end date of the minor is. Almost all minors take place in the first semester, but in which week the semester starts and ends can differ. Furthermore, be aware that a minor is full-time, so you cannot take other courses alongside it. Finally, a few minors continue into the second semester: if that is the case, you will find this in the minor description.

The division of the academic year at TU Delft is a rough estimation. For more information go to the TU Delft academic year calendar.

To view the teaching blocks and timetable, please visit the timetables page of TU Delft. Timetables of the courses of the first semester will be available mid-August.
