Admission to Dutch-taught bachelor’s programmes is based on three factors:
The admissions office has drawn up a list of most common foreign diplomas that meet the minimum requirements for admission. Go to the General Admission Diploma Requirements for more information.
If your diploma does not meet the requirements, you may still be admitted on the condition that you take entrance exams or national exams to compensate for any academic deficiencies. We will notify you about which exams are required after you have submitted your application for admission.
The specific entry requirements for each bachelor’s programme are indicated under each bachelor's programme.
You will need to submit proof of proficiency in Dutch in order to be admitted to a Dutch-taught bachelor’s programme.
Proof of proficiency in English is also an admission requirement for all Dutch-taught bachelor’s programmes. This is because some of your study materials and lectures may be in English.
Some bachelor’s programmes also require proficiency in other languages.
If neither your diploma nor your language level is deemed sufficient, you will most likely not be admitted. Instead, you will be advised to apply to an HBO institution in the Netherlands or a university in your home country.
