Admission to the Applied Nanotechnology Master's programme is conditional on having a Bachelor’s degree in an Engineering or Life Science subject (e.g. Biotechnology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, etc.). In addition, students must demonstrate that they have the ability, motivation and determination to successfully complete the programme. Furthermore, students must have adequate English-language skills and have experience in the execution of (research-based) projects.

An intake interview (face to face or online) forms part of the admission procedure and will focus on the match between the Masters programme and your background and motivation.

The current Corona crisis has a major influence on all facets of our society, including institutions for higher education in the Netherlands. Saxion University of Applied Sciences wants to prevent that students are not able to start their master’s degree in September 2020 because one or more modules of their bachelor’s degree could not be completed before September 1st as a consequence of the current corona crisis.

Our institution will therefore conditionally accept students who start their studies in 20-21 (September 1st 2020), but have not yet completed their bachelor. In order to apply for this exemption, one must hand in an detailed study plan on how completion of the bachelor’s degree will be combined with the master study. The study plan must include an advice by the mentor/study counselor of the bachelor institution, which state the extent to which the
candidate has the potential to complete the current bachelor programme before January 1st 2021.

The course director/admission officer will subsequently weigh the arguments, taking into account the study load of the master degree programme in the period between the 1st of September 2020 until January 1st 2021. The decision to conditionally accept students is valid until January 1st 2021 and in case the student fails to meet the entry requirements before this date, he or she is forced to quit the study programme and will be unenrolled from the master programme.

In case of any specific questions and more details on the conditions and relevance of this new regulation, please do contact the programme course director Bert Swennenhuis, +31 6 3046 8710 , for inquiries and advice.
