  • Pre-Master

    Many of the master's come with their own pre-master's for university students and/or university of applied sciences (HBO) students. If a student cannot gain direct access to the master's in question, but do have a related Bachelor's Degree and meet the admission requirements, they migth be eligible to do the pre-master's to still gain access to the corresponding master's programme.

    A pre-master's can support a slight switch between study programmes. It is not a mean in itself to switch from completely different study backgrounds.

    Student do not apply to a Pre-Master but directly to the Master. After the assessment of the completed application by the study programme, the student will get contacted with direct admittance, rejection or the offer of doing a Pre-Master.

    The offer, start moment (September and/or February) as well as the access for students with an international Bchelor's degree varies per study programme. This information can be found on the individual Master's websites.

  • ATLAS University College

    ATLAS University College - An interdisciplinary programme for top students (Bachelor)

    We offer the Bachelor’s programme in Technology, Liberal Arts and Sciences, or ATLAS for short. Traditionally, engineering (or technology) is not part of Liberal Arts and Sciences curricula. At University College Twente we firmly believe it should be. In order to understand today’s world, you have to understand technology. And solving today’s problems means you have to have design skills. Therefore, our bachelor's programme focuses on science, mathematics, engineering and social sciences. Our unique approach to engineering education is aimed at raising a new and different kind of engineer and global citizen.
