Admission / Enrolment

Dutch HBO Degree

As a Bachelor’s student from a university of applied sciences (HBO), you can apply for admission to both one and two-year Master’s programmes. In order to gain and/or improve the knowledge and skills needed to start a Master’s programme, it is often necessary to follow an additional pre-Master’s programme that you have to complete successfully in order to gain admission to the Master’s programme. Admission to a Master’s or pre-Master’s programme largely depends on your previous academic results and study programme.
