  • 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.

    The offer, start moment (September and/or February) as well as the access for students with an international Bchelor's degree varies per study programme. This information can be found on the individual Master's websites.

  • University College Twente (ATLAS)

    University College Twente is the Liberal Arts and Sciences college of the University of Twente. It offers a three-year, international Honours programme for motivated and ambitious students: the Bachelor’s in Technology and Liberal Arts and Sciences, or ATLAS in short. UCT is based on the American model of liberal education, which means you get the freedom to design your own study programme. As a student, you learn and live together with your fellow students on campus. The programme is characterised by challenging encounters with important issues and more a way of studying, rather than studying a specific course or field of study.
