- Check if you meet the course requirements, these can be found in the course description on Osiris. Notice that some courses have a maximum of participants.

The Bachelor-before-Master rule means that you can only start a master's program once you have completed your bachelor's or premaster's program. As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, you could suffer a study delay due to the Bachelor-before-Master rule. A temporary change in the Bachelor-before-Master rule allows students that are in the final phase of their Bachelor program and meet certain conditions to start their Master, despite a study delay due the COVID-19 situation. For more information about the exact conditions, and for how long this temporary adjustment lasts, click here.
