As a student from any Dutch research university (as opposed to a university of applied sciences, HBO) you can apply for a one or two-year Master’s programme. Your Bachelor’s degree will not always directly qualify you for admission to the Master’s programme of your choice. In order to gain and/or improve the knowledge and skills you need to start your Master’s, you may have to take an additional pre-Master’s programme, which you have to pass in order to proceed to the Master’s programme. Pre-Master’s programmes may vary in study load, from 30 to 60 ECTS credits.
If you have yet to complete your Bachelor’s degree, you can still apply for admission to an Master’s programme at the University of Twente.
