Application & Progression

Once you successfully submit your online application in OSIRIS Application, we can start the admission process. The information below is what you can expect during this period.

Receipt of Application
After we have checked your uploaded documents in OSIRIS Application, you will receive an email confirming that we have received your complete application. If the university requires additional information or documents, we will ask you to log in to OSIRIS Application again and provide the missing data. We will only continue with your application, once we receive all of the required documents.

Once your application is considered complete, one of our admission officers will assess your previous education. The admission officer will inform the Examination Board whether your level of previous education is comparable to a Dutch diploma/degree and if it is sufficient for admission to the university. The Examination Board will use this information along with your uploaded documents to assess your application and will make a recommendation to the Executive Board.

Within approximately 3 weeks of receiving your complete application, the Student Admissions office will inform you of the Executive Board’s final decision by e-mail.

The possible decisions are:

  • You qualify for (unconditional) admission to the programme
  • You qualify for (conditional) admission to the programme
    • All conditions will be listed in your admission email, they may include taking a test to prove sufficient knowledge of a required subject.
  • You do not qualify for admission to the programme

After you receive your admission email, you can officially enrol as a student at Radboud University. To enrol you must send certified hard copies of the documents mentioned in your admission email before the enrolment deadline. More information about enrolment.
