You may be required to take a number of courses as a part of the Sustainable Development pre-Master's programme (up to a maximum of 30 EC) should the Admissions Board deem that your previous education doesn’t sufficiently meet the basic course requirements. The Admissions Board will determine which courses you are required to take on a case by case basis. The pre-Master’s programme is only available for students with a degree from a Dutch university or university of applied science and who do not require visa / a change in residence permit or housing. When in doubt about your residence permit, you can send an email to Utrecht University's Admissions Office, including a copy of both sides of the permit. Do not forget to state clearly that you are referring to a Pre-Master’s programme.
