The University of Twente offers a pre-master programme in Technical Medicine for Dutch-speaking students with limited deficiencies. We offer a pre-master programme for students that are deficient in technology and a programme for students that are deficient in medicine.
The duration of a pre-master’s programme is one year; the maximum study load is 60EC. Students with more than 60 EC deficiencies will not be accepted for a pre-master. All pre-master programmes start in September.
Students with a Dutch HBO diploma are not admitted to a pre-master programme of Technical Medicine unless it can be demonstrated that additional knowledge has been acquired as a result of work experience and/or additional training.
The master's programme integrates the medical and technical domains. In this programme, you will become a professional with a unique technical-medical perspective and the ability to develop innovative diagnostic and treatment solutions for your patients. As a technical physician you will be the linking pin between medicine and technology. Throughout the programme you will learn how to apply existing technology in innovative ways to optimize diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Do you want to participate in one of these pre-master programmes? Then be prepared for an intense year with a high study load (42 hours per week). An independent and self-regulating attitude towards your study is required.
Do you think you are admissible for one of the pre-master programmes? Or do you have a different educational background than the ones mentioned above? But do you still expect to be admissible for the pre-master? Your eligibility for enrolment will be assessed by the admission board. If you want to find out whether you are admissible or not, you can enrol via this webpage.
