  • Step 3: Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
  • Step 4: Complete your registration; payment of tuition fee

Step 1: Apply via Studielink

Step 3: 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. Study choice activities are mandatory for all applicants who apply to a Dutch bachelor’s programme that don’t have a selection procedure. 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, a negative outcome means that we would recommend you to do further research into this programme and any possible alternatives. 

After having been admitted conditionally, you will receive an invitation for the study choice activities via e-mail. As a 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.
