Application and enrolment



  • Can I start a new Bachelor’s programme in February?

    For first-year Bachelor’s students, there is only one entry date in September. Hence, you cannot start a Bachelor’s programme in February (except at the Amsterdam University College). But if you have not completed your Bachelor’s programme and would like to resume it, it may be possible to rejoin in February. Request permission for this from your degree programme and enrol in a higher year via Studielink.

    Contact details for all Bachelor’s programmes can be found online. 1. Select the Bachelor’s programme of your choice. 2. Click on ‘Contact’ for contact details.


  • What is a follow-up Master’s programme?

    A follow-up master is a Master’s programme specifically designed for students who have completed a certain Bachelor’s programme. All students who have graduated from that specific Bachelor’s programme (and specific similar programmes at other Dutch universities) will be automatically admitted to the follow-up Master’s programme.

    If you haven’t graduated in one of these specific Bachelor’s programmes (for example, because you have graduated at a non-Dutch university), you have to start a full application.



  • How and until when can I withdraw an enrolment request?
    1. There are two steps you need to take in order to withdraw your enrolment request.
