Students from higher professional education (HBO) and university-level education (WO)

If you have a propaedeutic diploma from another university or University of Applied Sciences, you may qualify for admission to the first year of the programme, provided you fulfil the requirements for Mathematics and Physics. This means that you must have a Math B certificate, and Physics at VWO 6 level.
