Can I be admitted to a university study programme with my first-year certificate from a university of applied sciences (HBO-propedeuse)?

In principle, a HBO first year (propedeuse) certificate does not grant access to the first-year programme of a related university study programme. Some study programmes have additional or more specific requirements and admission procedures.

We advise you to take a look at the specific entry requirements for your intended study programme. You may need to submit an official application for admission. You will be informed about this once you have registered with Studielink, the enrolment system for higher education in the Netherlands.
