Pre-Master's programme

Get in touch with a student of this Master's 

As a Bachelor's student from a university of applied sciences (HBO), you might need to follow a Pre-Master's first.

The University of Twente sometimes offers a pre-master’s to students transferring from related programmes at other universities or universities of applied sciences (HBO). Pre-master’s are tailor-made for each individual student, depending on the student's prior education. The contents of the Pre-Master's in Business Information Technology is meant to bridge the gap between the student’s knowledge based on their previous education and the entry requirements for the Master's in Business Information Technology. For non-technical programmes Mathematics B on a vwo level (e.g. Boswell Bèta) or equivalent may be one of the requirements to enter the Pre-Master's. You must successfully complete the Pre-Master’s in order to be admitted to the Master’s in Business Information Technology.

HBO graduates will generally take a Pre-Master’s of 30 European Credits, if they have a substantial Computer Science background or if they have a background in Industrial Engineering or a related field. For these students the Pre-Master's will usually contain a combination of mathematics (calculus, linear algebra, statistics and probability), academic research methodology / skills and either business (organisation theory, management and finance), or computer science (object oriented programming and information system design). The latter is based on whether your previous programme was focussed more around computer science or business. You can start the Pre-Master’s in September. 

You must complete the Pre-Master's successfully within a limited time (two times the study load) in order to be admitted to the master’s. A pre-master’s should be seen as an opportunity for you to catch up with the prerequisites of the master’s, and for us it gives an indication of your suitability to go through to the main programme.

University graduates might be offered a programme of 15 or 30 European Credits depending on their background, if they cannot be admitted directly. Here the Pre-Master's will likely either cover programming, finance/business/management and/or mathematics.
