Application steps

For students with a diploma from a non-Dutch educational institution (educational institutions from the Netherlands Antilles included) the application consists of four steps:

  • Step 1: Enrolment application via Studielink
  • Step 2: Apply via My online application
  • Step 3: Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
  • Step 4: Complete your enrolment; payment of tuition fee

Step 1: Enrolment application via Studielink

You are to enrol via Studielink, the application and enrolment portal provided by the Netherlands Ministry of Education.

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, you will receive an email inviting you to follow up on your Studielink enrolment by applying in My online application.

In My online application you will be requested to answer additional questions 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 obtained your diploma yet. 

Confirmation email
If you (conditionally) meet the educational and English language requirements, you will receive a confirmation that you (conditionally) meet the entry requirements by email. In case of conditional approval, you will be requested to upload your diploma documents and/or English test results in a later stage in My online application. 

You can track the status of your admission in My online application.

Step 3: Study Choice Activities

Choosing the right bachelor’s programme increases your chances of successfully completing your studies. We will help you to find out whether the programme you have applied for is a good match. Study choice activities are mandatory for all applicants who apply to a Dutch bachelor’s programme without selection. 
Completing these activities is mandatory, but the outcome does not influence your admission to the programme. A positive outcome can be taken as a good sign. Otherwise we would strongly advise you to obtain even more information about the degree programme you applied for and to explore possible alternatives.

Once the educational and language requirements have been checked and (conditionally) approved, you will receive an invitation for the Study choice activities via e-mail. As part of these activities you can expect to receive an online questionnaire, questions regarding your motivation for choosing this programme and an online web lecture including a test.

Step 4: Complete your registration: payment of tuition fee

In order to complete your registration, you need to confirm your digital authorization or pay your tuition fee. More information about payment of tuition fee.

We will keep in touch
During the entire application, selection and registration procedure, Breda University of Applied Sciences will keep in touch with you via email. Please make sure you read and respond to the instructions in time.
