Qualification for dutch students

You can be admitted to our bachelor’s programme in Psychology with any Dutch vwo (pre-university) profile. If you have a university of applied sciences degree you can also enrol for the bachelor's programme in Psychology. If you have completed the first year of a university of applied sciences, you can (only) enrol if you obtained a havo diploma.

If you have successfully completed the first year at a university of applied sciences (‘hbo propedeuse’ in Dutch), we advise you only to enter the bachelor’s programme Psychology if you were among the better students in our year (scoring an average grade of at least 7.0). In addition to that, it is important that you are motivated to gain more depth of knowledge and to learn to think scientifically.
