This page concerns candidates with an international degree (for international candidates with a bachelor programme at a Dutch University of Applied Sciences, please refer to the 'hbo' degree page).

Are you eligible?

Our eligibility check is designed to assist you as a student holding a non-Dutch diploma. It gives you an indication of your eligibility, i.e. your chances of being admitted to the master's programme Business Administration. The e-check takes about five minutes to complete. The outcome of the eligibility check is a personal advice to you. Please note that this is not the official admission procedure and that no rights can be derived from the outcome of the eligibility check.

You can find a detailed list of all the admission requirements below.

Note: Students taking part in a double degree programme with TU Berlin or Lappeenranta University of Technology should proceed with their application, regardless of the outcome of the eligibility check.
