initiële opleiding

initial degree programme; programme for an initial degree

Higher education for a first degree. Under the old system this was the doctoraal for university programmes and the baccalaureus for HBO programmes. Under the new bachelor's-master's structure, the initial degree awarded at both research universities and hogescholen (universities of applied sciences) is the bachelor's degree. WO master's degree programmes that follow on from a bachelor's programme and are fully subsidised are also referred to as 'initial programmes'.
