Admission / Enrolment

Transferring from HBO to European Studies

Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a university of applied sciences (HBO) do not directly fulfill all the admission requirements. In order to start a master's programme you first need to do a pre-Master's programme to bring your knowledge up to the required level.

Admissible HBO degrees

Admission to the pre-Master’s programme depends on your Bachelor’s programme. Directly related to European Studies are:

  • Bestuurskunde
  • Commerciele economie
  • Fiscale economie
  • Rechten
  • Hogere juridische opleiding
  • Integrale veiligheidskunde
  • International Business & Languages
  • International Business Management
  • Management, Economie en Recht
  • Ruimtelijke ordening en planologie

If you have completed another hbo programme, you can also apply for admission. In that case, the admission committee will conduct an individual assessment procedure to determine if you have sufficient basic qualifications in European Studies.


You can start the premaster during or after your bachelor's degree. The application procedure and deadlines depend on the studyroute of your choice.
