Bachelor's-before-Master's rule

Due to an amendment of the law the so-called ‘transfer master’ has been abolished as from 1 September 2014. You can only be admitted to a master’s programme with the required bachelor's degree.

To whom does the bachelor-before-master rule apply?

This applies to all students.

Are any exceptions possible (hardship clause)?

No, this is prohibited by law. The new enrolment regulation within the law (‘WHW’) prevents exceptions.

Where can I get more information?

When you have questions about admission requirements and intake moments, please contact your study advisor.
