ICT in the Public Sector (MSc)


If you are keen on pursuing a MSc degree in ICT in Business and the Public Sector but you do not meet the admission requirements, a pre-MSc programme may be the right option.

A pre-MSc programme is designed to remedy deficiencies of a computer science related BSc degree. It consists of maximally 30EC,  is tailored to your background, and is agreed with the study advisor. It will cover and strengthen any missing topics from the required BSc Computer Science courses.

In order to be considered for a pre-MSc, you should apply for a MSc degree and explain in your cover (motivation) letter that you wish to be considered for admission to the MSc after completing a pre-MSc programme. You should provide a list of computer science-related courses that you have completed as part of your BSc degree, including the number of ECs awarded for those courses, and preferably a link to the course descriptions. The Board of Admissions will evaluate your application and –if appropriate- will accord a pre-Master programme or contact you for further information.
