You are going to apply for a bachelor’s degree programme at NHTV. NHTV has several application procedures in place, but they all have one thing in common: application for a degree programme starts with registration and submitting a ‘New enrolment application’ to Studielink, the online enrolment tool for universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. Your enrolment will be definitive once you have completed the entire procedure and once you have paid the tuition fee. Please note that you should arrange your enrolment application before the deadline that applies to the degree programme of your choice (15 January or 1 May).

An extensive description of the procedure and the subsequent steps can be found on the ‘Application (and selection)’ page of the degree programme of your choice.

Government intention to cut first-year tuition fees by half
At the moment, efforts are being put into the effectuation of the government’s intention to cut the tuition fees for new first-year students (in the first year only) by half. More information about this intention and progress on its effectuation can be found on the website of the Dutch national government (in Dutch).
Tuition fee payment
You will pay your tuition fee by means of a digital direct debit authorisation to NHTV. You will receive an e-mail for this purpose, with the request of confirming the direct debit authorisation via your ‘To do’ list in Studielink. Please make sure you arrange this before 1 August. You will receive a message once your direct debit authorisation has been confirmed.
Are you going to pay via a bank account outside the SEPA area?*
If you don’t have a bank account within the SEPA area, you will have to pay the appropriate tuition fee to NHTV yourself, before 1 August. You will find the bank account details in Studielink after you have filled in your payment details in Studielink.
If you qualify for a study grant, you will need to apply for this study grant at DUO, Studiefinanciering. To apply for a study grant (called ‘studiefinanciering’ in Dutch), you will need the official name of your degree programme.
