Bachelor'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.

Steps

  1. Step 1: Submit your enrolment request via Studielink

    You can apply for the Bachelor’s programme at Radboud University via Studielink. You can apply for a programme for the following academic year from 1 October onwards.

    Apply in Studielink

    Please note: A DigiD is required

    You will need to have a DigiD to apply for a programme in Studielink. If you do not have your own DigiD, you will need to request one via www.digid.nl; you will need to do this well ahead of the enrolment deadline. It usually takes five working days before you have received your activation code for your DigiD. If you do not live in the Netherlands or you still have to move here, you will not be able to use a DigiD and you will have to use your username and password to log in to Studielink.

  2. Step 2: Follow up on your ‘To-do Actions’ in Studielink

    After you have applied, it is vital that all of your ‘To-do Actions’ in Studielink are carried out in good time. So, keep a close eye on your emails (including the ones in your spam inbox).

  3. Step 3: Take part in the Study Compatibility Check

    You will be sent the login details for completing a digital questionnaire via the email address that you provided in Studielink. This questionnaire is part of the Study Compatibility Check, which is a final check to see if your expectations about the study programme are realistic and if you understand what we will expect from you as a student.

  4. Step 4: Keep an eye on your inbox

    Once Radboud University has received your application, we will check to see whether you are directly admissible to the Bachelor’s programme for which you have applied. You will then receive one of the following results by email:

    • You will be granted unconditional admission, which means that you can enrol in the study programme.
    • Your previous education will need to be assessed by the Admissions Committee, which means that you will need to proceed to Step 5.
  5. Step 5: Complete the digital questionnaire (but only if your previous education needs to be checked by the Admissions Committee)

    If your previous education needs to be assessed by the Admissions Committee, you will receive login details for a 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 complete the questionnaire and upload the documents as soon as possible after you have received this login information. Your application for admission will then be processed. The outcome of this step may be one of the following:

    • You will be granted unconditional admission, which means that you can enrol in the study programme.
    • You will be granted conditional admission: your admission decision contains the conditions that you will need to fulfil before definitive admission can be granted. You will then be able to enrol in the study programme.
    • You will not be granted admission: your application will then be withdrawn from Studielink. You will receive further details by mail about why your application was rejected.

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