From HBO to TU Delft

If you’ve earned a HBO degree, you are eligible to enrol in a TU Delft programme.

Please note: The vast majority of our bridging programmes are only offered in Dutch. Visit the faculty website for more information

Depending on the diploma, you can begin either a Bachelor’s or a Master’s programme:

Transferring into a Bachelor’s programme with a ‘HBO propedeuse’ following the first year of a HBO programme

If you’ve earned a ‘HBO propedeuse’ at the end of your first year in a HBO programme, you can, under certain conditions, begin in the first year of a TU Delft Bachelor’s programme in the same field of study. Link to additional information

Enrolment in a Master’s programme with a HBO Bachelor’s degree

An HBO Bacholor's degree does not qualify you for direct admission to a TU Delft Master's degree programme. To start a Master's degree programme, you will first need to complete a supplementary programme in order to bring your knowledge to the required level. You can do this during your HBO programme by completing a bridging minor, or by means of a bridging programme after securing your HBO diploma.

Language of instruction

The majority of bridging programmes are taught in Dutch. The Institute of Technology & Communication provides Dutch language courses for foreigners. Please see the Dutch webpages for further information about bridging programmes.

It is also possible to enrol in a programme that is not related to your HBO programme. In that case, You should contact an academic counsellor in the programme you are interested in.
