Pre-Master Computing and Information Sciences
The educational institute for Computing and Information Sciences offers several premaster programmes (especially for students from universities of applied science (Dutch: HBO)) that enable students to bridge the gap between non-RU bachelor programmes and our master programmes Computing Science or Information Sciences. There are standardized programmes for students with a particular background, e.g., students with a computing science bachelor in applied science or professional education, but in some cases, the Examining Board may determine a personalized pre-Master programme, depending on the student's background.
For Computing Science, the standardized programmes are tuned to the different master specialisations (Cybersecurity, Data Science and Software Science). For Information Sciences, there is one programme which contains courses relating to Business Administration, Computing Science and general academic background. More information about the standardized programmes can be found further on in this prospectus.
As they typically contain introductory courses to areas that are lacking in the students' background, the standardized premaster programmes contain courses that are scheduled in the first semester (fall semester). Also, it is important to notice that some of these courses might be in Dutch (as they are also taken by first or second year bachelor students).
If you would like more information or are interested in taking one of these pre-Master programmes, or if you would like to inquire after the possibilities of a personalized pre-Master programme spread across the first and second semester, please contact our student advisor Perry Groot (Perry.Groot@science.ru.nl) to discuss your options.
