  • Many programmes have additional requirements for your prior education. For instance, they may require Mathematics, Chemistry, and/or Physics at pre-university (vwo) level. If you do not meet these admission requirements, you must demonstrate that you possess sufficient knowledge of the missing subjects in order to get admitted to the bachelor’s.

    You can demonstrate your knowledge in different ways:
    • Obtain partial vwo certificates, for example via adult education (VAVO);
    • Take a specific subject examination at the CCVX (central pre-examination committee);
    • Take admissions exams (vwo) at Boswell-Bèta in Utrecht;
    We only accept vwo certificates with a sufficient score (at least 5.5 out of 10).
