Application deadlines

The deadlines on this page apply to every academic year. Please be aware that Psychology and Technical Medicine have deviating deadlines for all nationalities.

See for the deviating ATLAS deadlines the ATLAS website.

Visa Students

The following deadlines apply to students who do not have the Dutch nationality but a nationality that requires a residence permit for the Netherlands. Even if you are in possession of a Dutch or European residence permit your current nationality is leading. For example if you have a Mexican nationality and hold a Dutch residence permit, your nationality is Mexican (not Dutch) so the visa students deadlines apply to you.
