You may also consider enrolling in a minor or following specific courses during your bachelor's studies in order to prepare you better for the programme, or to avoid any pre-master's programmes. If you contact the programme admissions early on in your last bachelor year, we can either approve your admissibility (on condition bachelor’s) or advise you on how to manage any deficiencies.
