Degree from a Dutch university of applied sciences (HBO)
Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a University of Applied Sciences (in Dutch: hbo) don’t have access to this Master's programme.
Unfortunately, this Master's programme does not offer a pre-Master's programme for students with a Bachelor's degree from a University of Applied Sciences (in Dutch: hbo).
Did you – in addition to your hbo-Bachelor’s degree - also obtain at least 60 EC at university level (for instance via a pre-Master’s elsewhere)? Then – in some cases - you might be eligible for a tailor-made pre-Master’s programme at Utrecht University. However, the university courses you have already passed must focus on general psychological theories and methods & statistics, and should include a Bachelor’s or pre-Master’s thesis, because courses in these areas at our university have a limited capacity and cannot be part of a pre-Master’s programme. Please select Degree from a Dutch research university as your previous education to read more information on how to apply. It is for the Admissions Committee to decide whether you are eligible for a pre-Master’s programme.
Please note that a pre-Master's Programme is only available for students with a Dutch educational background who do not need housing, and who do not have or require a residence permit for study purposes. In addition, the language of instruction is Dutch.
