dutch hbo degree

Transferring from university of applied sciences (HBO) to Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society

The Master’s programme Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society at the UT is for all students interested in analysing and evaluating the role of technology in a broader social context. This means you should have affinity with technology as well as the ability to philosophically reflect on the influence of technology on society.

If you have a Bachelor’s degree from a university of applied sciences (‘hbo’ in Dutch), you can apply for the two-year Master’s programme in PSTS on the additional condition of scoring a satisfactory result on the Entry Assignment that you will be invited to write after submitting your application.

If you can, we advise you to include a University of Twente minor in your bachelor programme. The minors we recommend are related to PSTS. An example is the minor Philosophy and Governance of Science and Technology.


Please follow the application instructions.
