Admission and Application

Admission to the Master’s programme in Computer Science depends mostly on your educational background. Most students who are admitted have completed a bachelor’s in Computer Science, but some have a closely related background such as Computer Engineering.

Students from Dutch universities who have a Science or Engineering degree may be admitted after completion of a bridging programme.
