MASTER’S PROGRAMMES FOR STUDENTS WITH A CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY BACHELOR’S DEGREE

If you want to enroll for the Master’s programme Human Media Interaction (HMI), there is nothing you have to do, except make sure you get enrolled for HMI.

(For the enrolment procedure for UT Master’s programmes check the "how-to-apply" page) If you don’t want to follow this road, you must find yourself another Master’s programme, and actively seek admission to that programme. Formally this means that the Admissions Board of the Master’s programme must grant you admission. In practice your admission request will probably be handled by an admissions officer, but the issue remains the same: is your Creative Technology Bachelor’s diploma sufficient to get you a notice of admission to the Master’s programme of your choice.

In many cases your diploma alone will not be enough. For admission to most Master’s programmes other than HMI, there are additional requirements for your Personal Profile. In some Master’s programme the conditions for your Personal Profile to get admission may vary between different tracks of study within that programme. Some tracks within a Master’s programme may be excluded, regardless of your Personal Profile, while others are accessible, with the right Personal Profile.

The tables below show lists of Master’s programmes within the UT and outside the UT (Leiden, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Eindhoven) with the following information:

·

Where applicable, the tracks of study within the programme for which admission is possible.

·

The requirements for your Personal Profile to become eligible for admission. “None” in this column means that you can take any Personal profile you like; an amount of credits like 20-30EC means that you will have to fulfill “premaster” obligations in your Personal Profile with a study load of 20-30EC.

·

The “fixed course package” status of the premaster obligations. A “Y” in this column means that there is a fixed package of courses to take in your Personal Profile, an “N” means you have to “negotiate” your obligations with the Admissions officer/premaster coordinator.

·

The coordinator to turn to to announce your intentions to seek admission to the Master’s programme.

If you opt for one of the Master’s programmes in the tables, please first contact the Creative Technology programme coordinator Erik Faber to announce your intentions, and to check if the information below is still correct. After that, contact the Master’s programme admissions officer/premaster coordinator, to inform him of your plans, and (if necessary) to start the discussion about the premaster courses in your Personal profile.

ADMISSION WITHOUT THE APPLICABLE PERSONAL PROFILE

Admission to a (track within a) Master’s programme will remain possible, also if you did not take the applicable premaster courses in your Personal profile. But that will cost an extra effort (and extra money and time). You will have to take a premaster course programme after you took the Creative Technology degree, and before you are enrolled in the Master’s programme.

ADMISSION TO MASTERS PROGRAMMES NOT IN THE TABLE.

If you feel another Master’s programme, one that is not in the tables, would be the right one for you, you should contact the Creative Technology programme coordinator Eric Faber and inform him about your plans. However, before you meet with Mr. Faber, you should find out what are the admission requirements of your Master’s programme, who is the contact person for admission to that Master’s programme, and preferably you should also have sent an information request about your admission to that contact person.
