What you need to know about the premaster I-Tech

Bridge 'the gap' first or directly admissable to the master?

In case you have a BSc in Computer Science or Kunstmatige intelligentie (Artificial Intelligence) from a Dutch university, Electrical Engineering from one of the 3TU's, or Creative Technology or Business & IT from the UT, you have unconditional admission to our master's programme in Interaction Technology.

In case you have a different Bachelor's degree or a professional master's degree (HBO) in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or a related discipline (e.g. Artificial Intelligence, Mediatechnology, Creative Technology, Design) you can apply and the Admission Committee will judge whether you can be admitted to the programme. You can apply on our website: The committee will check your programme on the subjects of research methodology, programming, artificial intelligence, interaction design and mathematics. Based on this the Admission Office will come up with a pre-master's programme consisting of courses on the aspects mentioned above that are lacking. In case there is too much discrepancy no pre-master’s programme will be allowed, and no admission is possible. 

The pre-master's programme starts two times a year: in September and in February.


The premaster’s programme has been formally separated from the master’s programme. The student will only be admitted to the master’s programme, if all courses of the premaster’s programme have been finished with a sufficient examination result. The full premaster’s programme must have been finished successfully within a year after the start of the programme. If not, the student will be rejected for admission to the master’s programme. Note that you can only start with the master’s programme after you have completed the premaster’s programme and you have been admitted to the master’s programme. This is according to Dutch legislation (“harde knip”).


For students with a suitable HBO degree (Dutch university of professional education) in Computer Science or equivalent, a fixed premaster’s programme has been formulated. Students can also take this programme through as a transfer minor during their BSc programme. The admission committee may also offer this programme or a modified version to international students or students with a different background if the programme is suitable for them. 
The premaster/transfer minor for Computer Science and Electrical Engineering students consists of Mathematics, Academic Research Skills, Intelligent Interaction Design, Physical Computing (for students with a Computer Science background) or Programming in Python (for students with an Electrical Engineering background).
