Admission is determined on the basis of three factors: Educational background/diplomas, Programme specific requirements and Language requirements.
All applicants who are not in possession of a Dutch VWO diploma (or a Dutch University or ‘HBO’ diploma) have to apply for admission to have their foreign diploma evaluated. Your diploma will then be evaluated in order to ascertain its level in comparison to the Dutch VWO diploma.
Additional programme-specific requirements for admission may apply.
You also need to be proficient in English, as the whole of your study materials and lectures may be in English.
