What is the minimum GPA requirement for Dutch diplomas? What is the minimum GPA requirement for Dutch diplomas?

Your GPA is sufficient for application if you have (or will have before 31 August)

  • a bachelor degree from a research university (WO) in the Netherlands with an unrounded minimum grade point average (GPA) of 7.0. A GPA of 6.95 will be rounded off to a 7.0. A 6.94 will be rounded down to a 6.9.

OR

  • a bachelor degree from a university of applied sciences (HBO) in the Netherlands and have an overall grade point average of 7.5 or higher. A GPA of 7.45 will be rounded off to a 7.5. A 7.44 will be rounded down to a 7.4.

If you have obtained additional grades at a Dutch higher education institution during a second bachelor degree, master programme, or extra minor, these can be added to the GPA calculation (for the benefit of the applicant).

If your GPA does not meet the minimum requirement at the time of application, you can still apply, but the following conditions apply.

  • You must obtain a sufficient GPA before the start of the master (by the 31st of August).
  • If you are applying for a programme that has a maximum capacity, you need to obtain a sufficient GPA before the programme has filled up (which can happen before the regular application deadline). Students who meet the minimum GPA requirement at the time of application are given priority for these programmes.

Additional information for current/ former RSM students is available on the current student pages.
