Students with a bachelor’s degree from a research university in the Netherlands without enough credits in statistics and or research methods will be required to complete at least part of the RSM premaster programme. We advise applicants to apply for admission to the Master programme of their choice. During the evaluation, the RSM admissions office will assess your academic credentials and determine if the applicant needs to first do the premaster before starting the master.


If a premaster is needed, you will be given alternative admission. Some applicants will be asked to take the entire premaster which consists of 29 EC spread out over one academic year. Other applicants will be only asked to take the statistics module which is 9 EC and is given twice per academic year – once in September and once in January.
