Bridging programmes for Master's in Computing Science
Radboud University’s Faculty of Science offers students from Dutch Universities of Applied Science (i.e. HBO students) a pre-Master’s or minor programme.
The aim of the pre-Master's is to eliminate deficiencies and develop the skills that are needed for the Master's programme in Computing Science. It starts in September and generally consists of 30 EC (one semester). For students with extra deficiencies, we offer a tailor-made programme.
The pre-Master’s programme in Computing Science is only available in Dutch and is limited to the specialisations in Software Science, Data Science and Cyber Security. Students wishing to take the specialisation in Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science must have a completed academic Bachelor's in Mathematics or in Computing Science to be admitted into this programme.
Application and tuition pre-Master’s
To be admitted to the pre-Master’s programme you need a Dutch Bachelor’s degree in Computing Science or a comparable field of science. More information on the costs and application can be found on the website of the Student Affairs Office.
Please note that this pre-Master’s programme can be found under the Bachelor’s in Informatica in Studielink. In Osiris (for international students) the pre-Master’s programme is called ‘B AP Informatica’.
Besides the pre-Master’s, we also offer a minor programme. During their third or fourth year, Dutch HBO students can take a minor – a set of courses of 30 EC – at Radboud University. If you’re planning on continuing your studies with a Master’s, you can use this minor programme to follow courses from the pre-Master's programme in Computing Science.
More information about the minor, enrolment and costs can be found in the 'Minor gids'.
