Pre-Master

A pre-Master prepares you for a certain Master’s programme. It is usually a one-year programme of 30-60 EC. You can sometimes use your elective space to start following courses of a pre-Master’s programme during your Bachelor. However, please note that not all programmes offer a pre-Master and requirements can differ. Below are a few examples of such pre-sorting programs of the RU Nijmegen.
