If you fulfil the requirements and you complete step 1 (Apply via Studielink) by 1 May at the latest, you will certainly be able to start your studies. If you apply via Studielink after 1 May, Breda University of Applied Sciences will decide whether or not you will be admitted to the programme.
For our non-EU applicants; please note that 1 May is a strict deadline. Applications after this date will not be taken into consideration.
For students with a diploma from a non-Dutch educational institution (educational institutions from the Netherlands Antilles included) the application process consists of four steps:
- Step 1: Enter your enrolment application in Studielink
- Step 2: Apply via My Online Application
- Step 3: Take part in Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
- Step 4: Complete your enrolment; payment of tuition fee
Step 1: Enter your enrolment application in Studielink
You are to apply 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 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.
If you (conditionally) meet the educational and English language requirements, you will receive a confirmation by email that you (conditionally) meet the entry requirements. In the case of conditional approval, you will be requested to upload your diploma documents and/or English test results at a later stage in My Online Application.
You can track the status of your admission in My Online Application.
Step 3: Take part in 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 recommend you to do further research into this programme and any possible alternatives.
Once the educational and language requirements have been checked and (conditionally) approved, you will receive an invitation via email for the study choice activities. As part of these activities you can expect to receive an online questionnaire, questions regarding your motivation for choosing this programme and you will be introduced in to the content of the programme by reading a text or an article or watching a Web-lecture or movie about related topics, followed by a short test. In addition you will be asked a few questions about your English proficiency.
Step 4: Complete your enrolment: payment of tuition fee
In order to complete your enrolment, you need to confirm your digital authorisation or pay your tuition fee. More information about payment of tuition fee.
