HBO BSc degree

HBO students graduates with a degree in a technical field or in natural sciences from a Dutch University of Applied Sciences may be eligible for admission to the MSc EPA. Depending on your grades you will be required to follow a bridging programme. This bridging programme can be taken as a minor embedded in your HBO programme.

Bridging programme while earning a Bachelor’s at an HBO

If TU Delft has an existing agreement with your HBO, you may enrol in the bridging programme in the third and fourth years of your undergraduate studies. The programme,is called a ‘doorstroomminor’ [transfer minor]. It is important to note that the transfer minor programme is an integral part of an HBO programme and not supplemental to the courses taken to satisfy the HBO degree requirements; a total of 30 EC earned in the courses in the transfer minor are credited to the total required to earn the HBO degree. You can contact one of our academic counsellors further information on the doorstroomminor.  

Bridging programme following completion of your HBO programme

If you do not take the additional courses while completing your Bachelor’s during your HBO programme, then you must complete the bridging programme after you receive your Bachelor’s degree.

And if the field of study is not the same?

Theoretically, it is possible to enrol in a programme that is unrelated to your HBO programme. For further information, contact the academic counsellor for the programme which you wish to follow.
