# Hbo bachelors

The tem hbo bachelors refers to full-time hbo graduates. Part-time hbo students require more time to obtain their bachelor’ degree and have not been taken into account.

Hbo bachelors with a preliminary education at mbo level may be exempt from certain subjects. In such cases, the study duration period is shorter.
