Many Master’s degree programmes offer graduates of related HBO programmes a special pre-master programme. Before you can begin your Master’s degree, you must follow a so-called pre-master programme. HBO graduates cannot automatically register for a Master's programme. The most common transfers have standard bridging programmes. A combination that is less usual does not necessarily mean that there is no pre-master programme, just that one will have to be tailored to your situation.
NB: the two programmes must be related to each other in some way. For example, you cannot transfer from Primary School teacher training college to a Master's degree in Archaeology.
Transferring with a HBO degree
Some degree programmes offer a pre-master programme (one or two years) that results in a certificate of admission for a certain Master’s degree programme or a university Bachelor’s degree certificate that grants admission to a range of Master’s degree programmes. Have a look at the overview or contact the study advisor of your chosen Master's degree to discuss your options.
How to apply
You can apply for a pre-master programme via Studielink.
