The International Office reviews all applications individually due to their distinctive nature. Therefore, the only way to determine whether you are eligible for admission is by submitting an official application via Studielink and providing all required documentation in our student portal VUnet. After you have done so you will be informed whether you are eligible for admission by one of our International Student Advisors.
Next to the general admission requirements, each Bachelor’s programme has its own specific admission requirements and these requirements will be taken into consideration while assessing your application. Please check the specific admission requirements on the page of your Bachelor's degree programme.
The diplomas of the countries in the list below are considered to meet the general admission requirement of holding a secondary education diploma that gives access to Dutch universities. If your country is not on this list, it might still be possible to gain admission. Your International Student Advisor will assess each application individually.
Please note that our diploma list may be updated for future intakes.No rights can be derived from this list and the final decision on admission to the programme will be determined by the International Office.
