If you do not, or not yet, live in the Netherlands, you can enrol via Studielink, after creating a personal username and password. You can create your account on the Studielink website. Registration deadlines are 15 June (non-EU students) and 1 August (EU students).
Students living in the Netherlands - including non-Dutch nationals - can enrol as well as apply for student grants and loans via Studielink (in English, Dutch and German). For this, you need a DigiD log-in code, which takes up to five days to obtain. The closing date for registration on most programmes is 1 May.
All students living in the Netherlands applying for a full-time study programme not subject to selection must take part in an obligatory programme selection check. The programme selection check consists of an intake form and a matching day. Both are mandatory. Watch our information video. And find additional information on the programme selection check (in Dutch).
Please note: For the purpose of the selection check, students living in the Netherlands Antilles (BES and CAS Islands) are considered foreign students. The information relevant to this group can be found below.
For students living outside of the Netherlands applying for a full-time study programme, only part of the programme selection check is obligatory: the digital intake form. You have the possibility of a Skype interview with the programme coordinator, but this is not mandatory.
The programme selection check helps you to choose the degree programme that suits you best, so you have a greater chance of completing it successfully. You can find more information about the programme selection check on our international website.
