Under certain conditions and subject to approval by the Director of Graduate Studies, individuals not affiliated with Tinbergen Institute are allowed to attend MPhil courses. External applicants will only be admitted if they meet some equivalent of the TI course entrance criteria. Capacity restrictions apply to all courses, and are particularly relevant for core courses. More detailed information can be found in the Program Brochure 2016-2017.

Prospective external participants should register for courses using the online registration form, and follow further instructions provided there (which may include instructions to submit a CV and a transcript of relevant earlier coursework, with grades). Deadline for registration is two weeks before the start of the block concerned.

External participants pay € 1,500 for a core course (one block of eight weeks including one exam week) and € 1,250 for a field course (one block of eight weeks including one exam week).
