  • Pre-Master

    Many of the master's come with their own pre-master's for university students and/or university of applied sciences (HBO) students. If a student cannot gain direct access to the master's in question, but do have a related Bachelor's Degree and meet the admission requirements, they migth be eligible to do the pre-master's to still gain access to the corresponding master's programme.

    A Pre-Master can support a slight switch between study programmes. It is not a mean in itself to switch from completely different study backgrounds.

    Student do not apply to a Pre-Master but directly to the Master. After the assessment of the completed application by the study programme, the student will get contacted with direct admittance, rejection or the offer of doing a Pre-Master.
