Step 1: Entry requirements
Our entry requirements can be divided into three different blocks:
We will consider the level and curriculum of your previous studies.
You need to start off with a good command of English. Therefore, a proof of proficiency in English is required.
Level of mathematics
For one specific Bachelor's degree programme, a higher level of mathematics is required.
In order to be eligible for admission to one of the above programme, you will need one of the following pre-university education:
- an International/European Baccalaureate diploma;
- or a secondary school / pre-university diploma that is equivalent to a Dutch VWO diploma (academic stream) that permits admission to an undergraduate programme in Economics and Business in the Netherlands. Please consult our list with international and country-specific qualifications that are VWO equivalent.
Important to know: Your application will be assessed on an individual basis by our Admissions Office. The admission procedure includes evaluating your pre-university or academic credentials. You need to apply for the programme of your choice in order to for the Admissions Office to evaluate your educational background and assess your eligibility.
