Application Dutch students

Make sure you register in time, preferably before 1 May and at the latest by 1 September. If you apply after 1 May NHTV will decide whether or not you are admitted to the study programme.

In case you have not obtained your secondary school diploma yet, you can already apply by submitting your current grade list.

Application steps

For students with a diploma from a Dutch educational institution the application consists of three steps:

  • Step 1: Enrol via Studielink
  • Step 2: Study Choice Activities (Studiekeuzecheck)
  • Step 3: Complete your registration; payment of tuition fee

Step 1: Enrol via Studielink

You are to apply through Studielink, the application and enrolment portal provided by the Netherlands Ministry of Education.

  • Go to Studielink
  • Login to your account or create an account if you do not have one yet
  • Click 'Add previous education' and add the previous education that provides admission to the study programme of choice
  • Click on 'Add new enrolment' or 'Enrolment application'
  • Select your preferred programme and confirm your choice
  • Enter the starting month in which you would like to start your programme (1 September) and confirm

You can track the status of your application on your personal Studielink page and your personalised progress can been seen in the My NHTV Applicant App. Download the app in the Playstore or in the iTunes Appstore. If any input from your side is required, you will be informed via email.

Step 2: Study choice activities (Studiekeuzecheck)

Before or after registration you may attend one of the Orientation Days. On this occasion you will also do the Studiekeuzecheck. In case you are not able to attend one of these days you will get an invitation after registration in Studielink. The orientation day will give you an accurate picture of the study programme, its teaching methods, and the area of expertise. You will get to meet other students, lecturers and the coordinator of the programme, and last but not least, it is also a perfect opportunity for NHTV to get acquainted with you.

Study choice recommendation

After having done the Studiekeuzecheck you will receive a study choice recommendation from NHTV: a confirmation that the study programme fits you indeed, or an urgent recommendation to address a few gaps in your knowledge and/or skills before starting on the programme. Based on the activities and the study choice recommendation, you decide whether or not you actually want to go ahead with the study programme.

Applying after 1 May

If you apply after 1 May * NHTV will decide whether or not you are admitted to the study programme. * The reference date of 1 May does not concern students who will finish the current academic year with a negative binding recommendation.

Step 3: Complete your registration: payment of tuition fee

The tuition fee is in most cases € 2,060. 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 (in Dutch).
