What is a pre-master’s programme?
A pre-master's programme is a transfer programme for University of Applied Sciences or Research University bachelor's programme students who wish to obtain a university master's degree, but who cannot be admitted directly. Students with a related previous education can enrol in the pre-master's programme to obtain sufficient knowledge and skills to be able to participate in the master's programme.
Pre-master’s as a transfer programme
A pre-master is a transfer programme intended to bridge the gap between your current bachelor's programme and your future master's programme and serves to prepare you for the master's programme of your choice. There is no general programme; every master's programme has its own pre-master's programme. Naturally, acquiring the required domain-specific knowledge is an essential part of the programme. Moreover, the pre-master can contain a mathematical and methodological component and acquiring the necessary academic skills is important for university of applied sciences (HBO) students.
After your admittance to the (pre-)master's programme and after successful completion, i.e. you obtained the required number of EC credits, you can begin the master's programme of your choice.
