Are you interested in joining the master’s programme in Chemical Science & Engineering? Find out if you need to follow a pre-master's first.
After you have sent in your application for the Master's in Chemical Science & Engineering, a committee will check your eligibility. An outcome of this assessment may be that you first have to complete a pre-master's before being admitted.
Do you want to get insights into the Pre-Master's? The programme you need to take, depends on your previous or current education. What kind of education do or did you follow?
Besides addressing any deficiencies in your prior knowledge, the pre-master’s programme is an efficient way to find out whether studying at a research university in the field of Chemical Science & Engineering is right for you. Therefore, the following rules apply:
- We ask you to fulfil the requirements of the pre-master’s programme within one year. Since 30 credits is equivalent to half a year of full-time study, this should not pose a problem.
- You must earn sufficient marks with one re-sit per course. This means you need to take the pre-master’s programme seriously.
- You cannot expect to be successful in the pre-master’s programme if you approach it half-heartedly: it is meant as a half-year, full-time programme of study. That said, in practice almost all motivated students complete the programme in the allotted time.
