Students from the Netherlands are eligible for our Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship & Innovation if they have any of the following diplomas:

  • HAVO Diploma

You do not need to have an IELTS or other English proficiency certificate. Students with an ‘MBO-4’ diploma can also apply for our program and in some cases will need an IELTS certificate. This depends on what kind of MBO-4 diploma you have; please contact us to find out more.
