Safety & Security Management Studies - English - Full-time

It’s hard to think of a recent news story that has not involved safety and security. Headlines talk of conflicts, crime, terrorism, racial violence and threats. SSMS specialists are at the helm in the control room in a crisis and at the frontline with organisations’ safety and security issues. This doesn’t mean we’re all aiming to work in intelligence. But you will hit the ground running, learning how to thrive under pressure and see another side to society.

Admission

SSMS, 2020-2021

You have a Dutch diploma

To begin the SSMS bachelor's degree programme, you should have a HAVO or VWO diploma with the appropriate profile. For some profiles certain subjects are required. You could also qualify for admission with a MBO (level 4) diploma.

You have a non-Dutch diploma

To enrol for the SSMS 4 year programme you will need a secondary school diploma comparable to a Dutch HAVO diploma and a good command of English.

Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll need to assess your secondary school certificate.
To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualifications.

This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.

Bachelor’s candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.
All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language test.
Please check our entry requirements for more information.

If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above you might still qualify for exemption, for example if:

  • you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
  • you have a European or International Baccalaureate Diploma
Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.




Perhaps your academic background is not quite the right level. Or you need some help improving your English skills. Don’t worry. There might be some alternative options to help you get in, and prepare yourself for a successful start of your studies at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS).

Admissions Test 21+
If you’re 21 years old before 1 September 2020, but don’t have a diploma or a qualification that meets the entry requirements, you can take the 21+ Admissions Test. The 21+ Admissions Test is offered at several dates between January and the start of the academic year, and consists of a digital general capacity test. Please note that you can only participate if you have an EEA-nationality or residence permit for the Netherlands that is valid on the test date.

PREP School (English Academic Preparation School)
If your diploma grants admission to the follow up programme of your choice, but you have not quite reached the required level of English, we offer an English PREP school. On completion of this programme, you’ll not only be ready to join a degree programme at THUAS, but you’ll also have learnt a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and about our university.

 

There can be no exceptions made to the official admission requirements. The Central Student Enrolment Office is the only agency that can arrive at decisions regarding your qualification for admission as based on the official regulations. You cannot rely on any other sources of information with regard to your qualification for admission.
