Admission / Enrolment

Admission / Enrolment

As a bachelor's student at a university of applied sciences you can transfer to a one- or two-year UT master's programme. Students with a university of applied sciences bachelor's degree cannot immediately start with a master's programme at university. In order to start a master's programme you first need to do a transferprogramme to bring your knowledge up to the required level.

study load and Content

The study load of the transferprogramme depends on the master's programme you wish to enrol in. Most transferprogrammes vary from 30 to 45 ECTS. The content and admission requirements differ per master's programme and can be found at the relevant master's programmes webpages. Here you can also find the start date of the transfer's and master’s programmes. Most of the programmes start in September, with a few offering the additional possibility to start in February.

Brush up on English and Mathematics

Because most master's programmes are taught in English and a profound level in Mathematics is indispensable, it is recommended (and sometimes Mathematics and English at pre-university level (VWO) is one of the conditions for admission) that you freshen or brush up your knowledge of English and Mathematics before starting with the transferprogramme. Additional courses can be taken at, for example, Babel and Boswell Bèta or the Open Universiteit.
