Follow a minor at a research university

It is possible to follow a transfer minor within some of Radboud University’s Bachelor’s programmes during your Higher Professional Bachelor’s degree. Following such a minor can offer you several advantages:

  • Once you have completed a minor, you will often be granted an exemption within your pre-Master’s programme. A pre-Master’s programme is a transitional year that is tailored to suit the Master’s programme. Once you have obtained your pre-Master’s degree, you will be able to start the Master’s programme straight away.
  • This will make the transition from higher professional education to university education easier because you will already be acquainted with the courses that are offered at university; this will be especially useful if you are thinking about taking a pre-Master’s programme or a Master’s programme degree after your Higher Professional Bachelor’s degree. 
  • Following a minor will help your overall development and provide you with new insights,
  • and will also give you an idea of whether studying at Radboud University is right for you.

We offer several minors via Kies op Maat. We also have special cooperation agreements with both HAN University of Applied Sciences and AVANS University of Applied Sciences. 


Below you will find a list of the Radboud University programmes that offer a minor. If there is no cooperation agreement between your Higher Professional Degree programme and Radboud University, see the list of minors offered via Kies op Maat.
