We aim for the top 10 percent of students - not only at the HRSMC universities but also from other institutions and abroad. Selected students are talented in various disciplines and have a broad vision.

Admission to this special HRSMC Class of Excellence is granted based on a strict selection procedure which comprises a written application and an interview with the Board of the HRSMC and the scientific director of the HRSMC.


For Dutch students:

With an average BSc grade of 8 or higher (cum laude) you are automatically selected for an interview.  Is your average grade below 8 you have to present a recommendation letter of an (assistant/associate) professor in which evidence is provided that you belong to the 10% of your cohort.

For Foreign students:

You have to present compelling evidence that you are in the top 10% of your cohort, supported by a recommendation letter of an (assistant/associate) professor. Average BSc grades are less crucial since foreign grades systems can differ from the system in the Netherlands.


You can apply by providing the HRSMC office

  • your BSc grades
  • a motivation letter 
  • a recommendation letter (if necessary, see the criteria above)

Applications can be sent by  to HRSMC Coordinator Ms. Dr. R. Scheffelaar.
