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 process consists of three steps:
- Step 1: Enter your enrolment application in Studielink
- Step 2: Take part in Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
- Step 3: Complete your enrolment; payment of tuition fee.
1. Enter your enrolment application in 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: Take part in Study Choice Activities
Study choice activities help you discover if the degree programme for which you have applied actually suits you well. That is why these activities are compulsory for all applicants. The study choice activities consist of an online assessment and the Matching Day. Based on these two activities, BUas will issue a personal recommendation for you.
- Online assessment
Among other things, you will be asked questions about your character and how you handle things (competencies), as well as your knowledge of the English language. You will also complete an education-specific questionnaire to assess your interest in the profession for which you will be trained. In preparation for the matching day, you will be given an assignment to work out or prepare at home.
- Matching day
During the matching day, the assessment outcomes will be discussed. You will attend a lecture and take a test or do an assignment to get a better impression of what it’s like to study at BUas. What’s more, attention will be paid to mutual expectations and there will be more than enough opportunity to ask questions.
After completing the study choice activities, you will receive a recommendation about your suitability for the degree programme. A positive recommendation is, of course, a good sign. A negative recommendation means that we would strongly advise you to obtain even more information about the degree programme you applied for and to explore possible alternatives. If you applied before 1 May, this recommendation will not affect your admission to the degree programme. If you applied after 1 May, however, a negative recommendation means that you will not be admitted to the programme.
Step 3: 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.
