21+ assessment Bachelor's programmes without selection

21+ assessment

If you do not meet the admission requirements but you are aged 21 or over, you may appeal to the 21+ assessment.

You have to be at least 21 when the programme starts. Based on an assessment, we will determine whether you are qualified for admission.

Fot the bachelor's programmes without selection, the 21+ assessment means that you have to take the following 3 steps:

  1. Compiling a portfolio
  2. Capability, motivation and learning style test
  3. Interview

1. Portfolio

A portfolio serves to demonstrate your potential. You describe your education, work experience and any additional information that has been important in your choice for this particular programme. The portfolio will be discussed in the interview. 

2. Capability, motivation and learning style test

You will do a computer-based  test. The capability test measures your mathematical and linguistic skills as well as your spatial aptitude. Its outcome will help us determine whether you are able to handle the academic demands of a study programme at higher professional education level. The results of the capability test and the outcome of the motivation and learning styles will be discussed during the interview.

3. Interview

Your portfolio and test results will be discussed during the interview. This is your opportunity to talk about your choices and motivation.

During the interview, be prepared to discuss/ demonstrate:

  • that you have thoroughly informed yourself of this programme and that you have made a well-considered choice;
  • your oral fluency in English;
  • why you think you will be able to complete the programme successfully even though you don’t have the requested qualifications.

The results of the 21+ assessment will determine whether you are allowed to participate in the matching procedure and whether you are allowed to enroll.


The fee for the 21+ assessment is € 150.


It is possible to take part in the 21 + Assessment on 1 February, 4 April and 23 May 2024.


If you wish to apply, you will first need to register, 1 May at the latest, in Studielink for the degree programme of your choice. At the same time you need to send an e-mail to the degree programme of your choice
