Admission procedure

Send an e-mail to MasterNLE@hu.nl to express your wish to be part of the Master Next Level Engineering Programme. We are happy to answer any questions you might have, per e-mail or in a real-live conversation if that is what you prefer.

When you want to take part in the programme you need to follow all the steps of the admission procedure. Our programme coordinator will place you on the list for the next available date.

  1. Step 1: Motivation letter

    We'd like you to show your motivation to be part of this specific Master programme and learning community.

    You will have to write a cover letter for which you receive a more detailed description from the programme coordinator.

  2. Step 2: Analytical test in English

    You can prepare for an analytical test via our online platform, for which you will be granted entry. This is a course designed to study independently, mainly for you to find out if you have what it takes to successfully finish the more technical courses of our Engineering programme. This preparation course and admission test consist of some math, physics and analytical exercises. This test is designed to have predictive value as to the extent you will be able to master some of the more technical courses in the programme.

    The test will take place at the Utrecht Science Park at one of the three different time slots. You will be invited for a specific date soon after having started your admission process.

  3. Step 3: Intake interview

    Approximately one week after you have taken the analytical test, you are scheduled for an interview that takes place at the Utrecht Science Park during one of three different time slots.

    After this interview we will advise you on how we see your chances in the programme.
