HBO TOP (minor)

Are you an excellent hbo student? Perhaps you are eligible for the HBO TOP program during your hbo. After completing the HBO TOP program, you can easily transfer to a Master program at the TU/e!

Note: The HBO TOP program is not a regular minor. The HBO TOP program might be longer than just one semester.

Can I participate?

You can participate when:

  • Fontys or Avans have selected you for this program
  • the TU/e has selected you (when you are not a Fontys or Avans student)
  • you have completed all first year hbo courses
  • you have sufficient progress (successfully completed first year)
  • you are interested in following a master's program at the TU/e

What does following such a program mean?

  • During one or several years of your hbo education you will follow TU/e courses.
  • In most cases, you have direct access to the TU/e Master's degree upon successful completion of the course. 
  • When you receive direct access to the TU/e Master's degree upon successful completion of the course you can register for the master program through Studielink. (you can ignore the automated response about not being eligible)
  • The program can be partially 'on-top-of' your hbo education.
  • During the program you get credits for your hbo education.
