Application procedure

Make sure you follow the right application procedure.

Do you have a diploma from a Dutch education institution (diplomas from the Netherlands Antilles not included)? Please follow the application procedure below, even if you don't have Dutch nationality. 

Do you have a diploma from a Non-Dutch educational institution (educational institutions from the Netherlands Antilles included)? Please follow the application procedure for international students, even if you have Dutch nationality. 

Dutch students

If you meet the admission requirements and you apply by 1 May at the latest, you will certainly be able to start your studies. If you apply after 1 May, Breda University of Applied Sciences will decide whether or not you will be admitted to the study programme.

For students with a diploma from a Dutch educational institution the application consists of three steps:

  • Step 1: Enrolment application via Studielink
  • Step 2: Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
  • Step 3: Complete your registration; payment of tuition fee.

1. Enrolment application via Studielink

You are to apply through 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: Study Choice Activities

Choosing the right bachelor’s programme increases your chances of successfully completing your studies. We will help you find out whether the programme you have applied for is a good match. Therefore, study choice activities are mandatory for all applicants. The outcome of these activities does not influence your admission to the programme. A positive outcome can be taken as a good sign, a negative outcome means that we would recommend you to do further research into this programme and any possible alternatives. 

More information on Study Choice Activities will be available on this page in due time.

Step 3: 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.
