Pre-Master’s application procedure - Dutch previous education

To apply for a programme, you need to submit a request for enrolment in Studielink before the application deadline. Before you apply, please check the admission requirements and then follow the steps below.


  1. Step 1: Submit your enrolment request via Studielink

    Apply for your chosen pre-Master’s programme via Studielink. You can apply for a programme for the following academic year from 1 October onwards. 

    Submitting a request for enrolment requires the following steps in Studielink.

    1. Go to 'Study programmes' and select 'Add new enrolment application'
    2. Search for your pre-Master’s programme by name: ‘Pre-Master’s in [name of study programme]’. The name of the pre-Master’s programme is often the name of the Master’s (specialisation).
    3. Select the educational institution: Radboud University
    4. Select the type of study programme: WO Bachelor

    Apply in Studielink

    Note: register on time! You do not need to have completed your previous education when you apply. You can find the application deadlines at the top of the Admission & Application page of the pre-Master's programme. 

  2. Step 2: Fill in the digital questionnaire

    Because your prior education needs to be assessed, you will receive the login details for the digital questionnaire at the email address that you provided in Studielink. You will need to log in to the questionnaire, and once you have completed it you will need to upload the requested documents. Please make sure that you submit your completed questionnaire and the required documents by 1 July at the latest. If you complete the questionnaire after 1 July, there is no guarantee that we will be able to process your application for admission in time.

  3. Step 3: Keep an eye on your mailbox

    Your request for admission will then be processed. Within approximately 3 weeks after you have submitted the digital questionnaire, Student Admissions will inform you by email about the admission decision. There are three possible outcomes:

    1. You will be granted unconditional admission
    2. You will be granted conditional admission. This means that there are conditions that you will need to fulfil before definitive admission can be granted. You will receive an email about what these conditions mean.
    3. You will not be granted admission. Your application will then be withdrawn from Studielink and unfortunately you cannot enrol for this pre-Master's.

    The details of this outcome will be forwarded to the email address that you provided in Studielink.

    Have you been admitted to the pre-Master’s?

    Congratulations! Then go to the enrolment procedure and follow the steps to enrol.
