HBO-TOP minor

If you are an excellent student at the Fontys or Avans HBO, you may be eligible to join the HBO TOP program. This will make it easier for you to enroll in a master’s degree program at Eindhoven University of Technology. This is not exactly the same as a pre-master program, since you are still working on your HBO bachelor’s degree.

Eligibility requirements

  • You have been selected by Fontys/Avans or by TU/e 
  • You have your first-year HBO diploma (propedeuse) and are making sufficient progress 
  • You are interested in doing a master’s degree program at TU/e

Characteristics of the HBO TOP Excellence track

  • At least one year of work during your HBO studies 
  • Offers direct connection to a TU/e master’s degree program, allowing you to register through Studielink. The course load may be part of your HBO course profile or in addition to it 
  • You will receive ECTS for your HBO TOP courses

How to apply

The HBO TOP program was developed for Fontys and Avans. Your school will put your name forward if you are eligible.
