Students applying to one of our Bachelor’s programmes should hold a Dutch VWO diploma, HBO propedeuse or a comparable equivalent from the country in which they have obtained their diploma. If you have foreign credentials, mathematics and English should be included in your final examination or attended until at least the last year of secondary education.
The starting level of a regular Bachelor’s programme at Dutch universities is comparable to that of other Western European countries, but it is generally higher than in most countries outside Western Europe.
