Step 1. Enter your enrolment application in Studielink

You are to apply through Studielink, the application and enrolment portal for higher education programmes in the Netherlands.

You can track the status of your application on your personal Studielink page and in the progress overview in My Online Application.

Step 2. Apply via My Online Application

Once you have submitted your Studielink enrolment application, you will receive an email inviting you to follow up on your Studielink application by applying in My Online Application.

In My Online Application you will be requested to answer additional questions (e.g. about your English proficiency) and to upload your application documents; CV, ID, your secondary school diploma including list of grades and translation (if these documents are not in one of the following languages: English, French, German or Dutch) or your most recent list of grades if you have not yet obtained your diploma.

Step 3. Take part in the selection procedure
  • Once the admissions officer has checked and (conditionally) approved your educational background, you will do an online intake assignment.
  • After turning in the assignment, it will be assessed and based on the result (pre-selection) you may be invited for an online interview.

Your intake assignment must be submitted no later than 15 August and will be assessed after submission (the deadline for non-EU applicants is 31 May). If the assignment meets the requirements, you will be invited for an interview. Within 10 days after the intake interview, you will be informed about whether you have been admitted to the programme, you have been placed on the waiting list or you have been rejected. If places fall free, candidates on the waiting list will be allowed into the programme in chronological order. 

Step 4. Complete your enrolment: payment of tuition fee
