Applicants for a (pre-)master’s should have a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent qualification) from a recognised (accredited) higher education institution in a discipline related to that of the (pre-)master's. Always check the master's specific admission requirements.
Our eligibility-check gives international students with international degree advice on whether they are eligible for a particular (pre-)master’s. The check takes about five minutes to complete and gives individual advice about your chances of being admitted to the (pre-)master’s of your choice. See our eligibility check overview for all available checks.
The eligibility check is created for students with an international bachelor's degree, including Dutch students obtaining a non-Dutch bachelor's degree. If you have completed your bachelor's degree at an accredited institution in the Netherlands, you do not have to complete the check.
Double degree or joint degree students should always proceed with their application, regardless of the outcome of the eligibility check.
We have specific admission information for students with a Dutch degree:
- Students with a UT Bachelor's
- Students with a Dutch HBO degree
- Students with a degree from another Dutch research university
You can apply for admission to a (pre-)master’s at the University of Twente, even if you still have to complete your bachelor’s. You may be granted a conditional acceptance based on your transcripts, detailed curriculum information, relevant research and expected graduation date. However, to finish your enrolment you need to submit your bachelor’s degree before you can start the (pre-)master’s.
Nationals of the People’s Republic of China need to obtain a NUFFIC certificate as a validation of their qualifications, in addition to their English language test score documents. The University of Twente needs your Nuffic certificate (formally known as ‘NESO certificate’) for your visa application. For more information please see the website of Nuffic.
In addition to these general requirements, specific requirements may apply to admission to joint programmes.
