Admission requirements

Admission requirements for degree programmes depend on your previous education and your chosen Bachelor’s programme.

Admission requirements per programme

Do you have a Dutch pre-university (VWO) certificate? Take a look at the chart to see which degree programmes match your subject cluster. With a Dutch pre-university certificate you are admissible for the Bilingual track or the English track.

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. This means that you must have a Math B certificate at VWO 6 level.

A foreign diploma gives access to TU Delft if it is equivalent to the VWO diploma and subject cluster. TU Delft will establish this after application. With a foreign diploma you have to fulfil the English language requirements to start with the English track. If you can prove that you fulfil the Dutch language requirements, it is also possible to register for the Bilingual track.
