Additionally, the candidate should have covered:

Scores attributed by the Admission Board
Admitted / not admitted / admitted under condition obtaining the BSc or MSc degree / not admitted with offer of pre-master
Compensation of knowledge gaps
The Admission Board may allow and/or suggest compensation of knowledge gaps by:
- a GPA≥7.0* for the previous education for small discrepancies as new knowledge is sufficiently easily acquired;
- a GPA≥7.0* and an individual pre-master's programme for larger discrepancies that can be compensated in ≤30 ECTS and one year of study.
*Check the general admission page for the International credentials evaluation guide for international equivalencies to a Dutch GPA>7.0. This guide includes compensating factors for a slightly lower GPA the Admission Board may include in their judgement.
Contact us through the contact button above to discuss the possibilities of a pre-master or how to mitigate knowledge gaps if you are still in the process of obtaining your degree.
