From UT bachelor's to UT master's

After you are officially graduated from the Bachelor, we will take care of your Master’s enrolment.

From UT pre-master's to UT master's

Pre-Master to Master per 1 February (intake moment): in Studielink you have to apply for enrolment for the Master’s programme per 1 February and arrange the payment of your tuition fees. After you have officially finished the Pre-Master, we will take care of your Master’s enrolment.

Smooth transfer per 1 february 2023

In the context of COVID-19, it is possible, under certain conditions, to make use of the so-called ‘smooth transfer’ from a bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme to a master’s programme per 1 February 2023. This means that you may be allowed to start with a master’s programme even if you have not yet completed your bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme. From the moment you enrol for the master's programme smooth transfer, you owe the tuition fee for this master's programme.

If you want to claim for the COVID-19 temporary smooth transfer, please take the following steps:

  1. Please make a request of enrolment in Studielink for the master’s programme of your choice and arrange the tuition fee for this master's programme.
  2. Contact the study adviser or the master’s coordinator at the faculty as soon as possible. The programme assesses if you are eligible for a smooth transfer.

If the faculty agrees with your smooth transfer to the master’s programme: Student Services will receive your details from the faculty and will process your request for enrolment for the (conditional) master’s programme next to your bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme.

For international students who owe the institutional tuition fee: mind that for the master’s programme you owe the master’s amount of tuition fee. In concrete terms, this means that the tuition fee for the bachelor’s programme will be increased to the amount you owe for the master’s programme. In case you are a pre-master student next to the conditional master’s enrolment you owe the full master’s amount of tuition fee.

If the faculty does not agree with a smooth transfer, then you do not meet the conditions for this transfer, meaning you will not be able to enrol in the master’s programme per 1 February 2023. Only after you graduated officially from the bachelor’s programme or officially passed the pre-master’s programme can you enrol in the master’s programme (as per the usual bachelor’s-before-master’s ruling).
