Prior to start of the Master’s programme, a number of steps have to be taken by the (future) Master’s student. The list below can be regarded as first directions. More extended information can be found in this guide.

Admission and enrolment to the programme

The admission requirements to start a Master’s programme are presented in chapter 11 of this guide and enrolments are centrally organised at CSA. Additionally, this chapter explains the terms and Fees and Finance for enrolment.

Composition of a personalised Master’s curriculum

The Master’s programme of Biomedical Engineering at University of Twente (UT) is characterised by its specialisation and depth in a particular part of the global research area. This allows the Master’s student to compose a personalised Master’s curriculum. To ensure quality of the programme, the composition of this curriculum has to consent with a number of programme rules, which will be explained in paragraph 12.3. This requires a number of steps to be taken by a future student before/ at the start of the programme.

Choose a Master’s track and research group

Prior to the start of a Master’s programme, students have to sort out their interests and abilities in order to determine a fitting Master’s track. Hereafter, a biomedical research group of the UT can be chosen to graduate at. Chapter 12 provides information about the Master’s tracks in the programme. The following chapter gives a description of the available research groups.

Plan a set of courses together with the professor of the chosen research group

The professor of the chosen research group can be consulted to plan a personalised set of courses for a Master’s track. This set has to consist of three compulsory courses and a number of elective courses, which has to comply with some general rules and some specific demands of the professor of the chosen research group.


Select compulsory and elective courses

The schedules for the Master’s programme consist of the compulsory courses and the courses that are primarily intended as elective courses for BME students. The information for other elective courses can be found at the schedules of the relevant study programmes for that course or can be acquired from the concerning lecturer.

Fill in a course form

The determined set of courses has to be submitted to a course form with the signatures of the student and the professor. The Master’s programme of Biomedical Engineering knows two types of course forms for the different pre-Master’s tracks. Specific demands for graduation at a certain research group can be found in this guide, an up-to-date version of this “Master‘s information” can be found at:


The course forms can be found in the appendices and under the following link:

http://www.tnw.utwente.nl/bmt/master/Forms and Regulations/Course forms.

Submit form at BOOZ and get consent of Board of Examiners (via BOOZ)

The course form has to be submitted to the Office of Educational Affairs (BOOZ, HorstRing W221, paragraph 8.7). The form will be reviewed by the Board of Examiners for its conformity to the programme’s demands. The content of the course profile is the responsibility of the professor of the chosen research group. BOOZ will send an e-mail about student’s admission approval.

Enrolment for courses

Enrolment for the Master’s courses is required via TeleTOP at least 6 weeks prior to start of the course (except for the courses directly at programme start). In this way, a lecturer is able to tune its course preparation to the expected number of students.
