Degree from a Dutch research university
This page outlines the step-by-step process for completing your application to a Master's programme at Utrecht University. Please read this information thoroughly before starting your application.
In order to be accepted to this Master’s programme you need:
- An academic Bachelor’s degree.
- To be able to measure and/or interpret aspects of human behaviour in a qualitative or quantitative manner. This will be assessed by the Admissions Committee based on your application file. In some cases, an (online) interview may be part of this assessment.
- Sufficient command of the English language.
As a graduate from a Dutch Research University you have fulfilled this language requirement.
Unsure if you qualify for admission?
In order to properly assess whether you are eligible for admission, it is important that we have the right information. It is therefore necessary that you apply through the standard admission procedure and submit the required documents. The Admissions Committee will then evaluate your eligibility and you will be informed of their decision by means of a letter of (non-, conditional or unconditional) acceptance.
Unfortunately, this Master's programme does not offer a pre-Master's programme.
