English Language Premaster (online)

RSM offers an English language premaster programme for students who will / have completed a bachelor degree at an accredited University of Applied Sciences in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands (HBO) Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. 

RSM also welcomes students to the premaster who have completed their bachelor at a research university, but are missing the required content in qualitative & quantitative research methods and statistics.

This one-year premaster prepares students for participation into one of RSM's MSc programmes and must be completed within two consecutive years. If you have not completed all programme requirements within two years, the grades and credits received up to that point will no longer be valid.

Admission & Application

Application for the premaster programme is open from 1 October 2020 until 15 May 2021. Please be aware that this programme has a limited number of spots available and so the maximum capacity could have been reached already before the deadline of 15 May. Therefore we recommend you to apply as soon as possible in case you meet the admission requirements

After the Premaster

Successful completion of the premaster programme does not result in a bachelor diploma or other certificate, but gives you a ‘proof of eligibility’ to (some of) the RSM's 12-month Master programmes, which must be redeemed within one year.

The content of your bachelor degree will determine which MSc programmes you may participate in following successful completion of the premaster. During the admissions process, the RSM admissions office will determine which MSc programmes you may participate in.

You can also apply for the 18-month MSc International Management/CEMS programme, but admission is not guaranteed as this programme has an extra selection procedure.
