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 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. We offer two premasters that contain the same content and consist of 29 EC spread out over one academic year. The English premaster is delivered online and the Dutch premaster meets in person.
