Would you like to do a master but you don’t meet the requirements for direct entry?
No need to worry. That is what our Pre-Master's programmes are for.
Pre-Master's programmes are designed to help you enter one of FEB Master's programmes when you have certain deficiencies in your academic background. Once you have successfully completed the Pre-Master, you can enroll in the corresponding Master's programme without any trouble.

Most (HBO) students apply for Standard Pre-Master programme. This programme is the main route to enter a majority of our Master's programmes. Find out more about the difference between HBO and University.
The standard Pre-Master's programmes start in September and take one year (60 EC). We also offer non-standard and tailor-made Pre-Master's programme. Please read carefully the conditions and entry requirements for these programmes.

Please note that entering the standard Pre-MSc Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial Studies with an HBO degree and a BSc Bedrijfskunde and BSc International Business from UG is not possible.
