Frequently Asked Questions
I’m looking for a specific master’s programme.
Welkemaster.nl shows you which master’s degree programmes are available after completing a particular bachelor’s programme. Once you’ve selected your school or university and your bachelor’s programme and you’re looking at the list of master’s programmes, you can search by a master’s name. You can also use filters, for instance if you only want to see master’s programmes offered by a particular university or university of applied sciences. Are you looking for a specific master’s that your bachelor’s degree won’t give you direct access to? Go to https://www.studiekeuze123.nl/masters
Where does the information in this tool come from?
This tool uses information from Studiekeuze123’s degree programme database (Studiekeuzedatabase), which contains data from several sources. The information on continued study options, names of master’s degree programmes, programme websites, start dates and programme languages all comes from HOVI (Hoger Onderwijs Voorlichtings Informatie), a system that contains information on higher education programmes. The information on names of universities and universities of applied sciences, names of bachelor’s degree programmes, programme types, funding, locations and credits comes from CROHO (Centraal Register Opleidingen Hoger Onderwijs), a centralised registry of higher-education degree programmes. The information about fields of study is supplied by Studiekeuze123.
What if my bachelor’s programme isn’t showing up?
This tool uses the names of degree programmes as they were entered into CROHO (Centraal Register Opleidingen Hoger Onderwijs), a centralised registry of higher-education degree programmes. If your bachelor’s programme isn’t showing up, consider asking the institution that offers it under which name the programme was entered into CROHO. It’s also possible that the name of the programme was changed at some point and it can only be found by searching for the new name. If you suspect that’s the case, please contact Studiekeuze123. Lastly, your bachelor’s programme may have been terminated and will no longer be visible in this tool. In that case, it’s best to call a representative of the master’s programme you’re interested in to find out whether you’re admissible with your specific bachelor’s degree.
Why isn’t a particular master’s programme showing up as expected?
There can be several reasons that the master’s you’re expecting isn’t being shown. One possibility is that the bachelor’s degree you’ve selected doesn’t give you admission to that master’s programme. Another is that the master’s programme hasn’t been entered into CROHO (Centraal Register Opleidingen Hoger Onderwijs), a centralised registry of higher-education degree programmes, or that the institution hasn’t entered it as a variant of a CROHO programme in HOVI (Hoger Onderwijs Voorlichtings Informatie), a system that contains information on higher education programmes. If you’re wondering why a particular master’s programme isn’t shown, please contact Studiekeuze123.
The information I’m seeing is incorrect. What should I do?
If you have any questions or comments about the information shown, please contact Studiekeuze123.
What does Admissible immediately mean?
“Admissible immediately” means that with the bachelor’s degree you’ve selected, you will be admitted to the master’s programme shown without any further requirements.
What does Admission requirements apply mean?
“Admission requirements apply” means that you may be admitted to the master’s degree programme only if you meet certain requirements. For instance, you may have to pass the admission exam or complete a pre-master’s programme.
What does Admission unknown mean?
When the admission requirements for a master’s degree programme show up as “unknown”, the institution hasn’t supplied the relevant admission information yet. Please contact the institution for more information.
