Admission & enrolment

Enrolment Creative Technology

Participation in matching activities is mandatory. Procedure:


  • Register: through Studielink. The deadline for registration is 1 May 2016. If you register between 1 May and 30 June 2016: the Creative Technology programme may still accept your application (Dutch and international students) if your participation in the required matching activities can still be arranged, and other applicable deadlines are met (e.g. for visas and housing for international students, see Admission Office). If you register after 30 June 2016, you will no longer be eligible for admission.
  • Required documents: Following your Studielink registration, you will receive an email asking you to send your intake documents to the Admission Office (by email). The email contains the complete list of documents needed.
  • Deadline for intake documents: within 4 weeks after registration in Studielink. If you fail to meet this deadline, we will cancel your application.


In order to make sure you have chosen the right programme, we organize matching activities. These are designed to help you make sure the programme suits you and to help us know whether you are suitable for the programme (please note that we can only offer advice in this matter). After receiving your intake documents, we will invite you to register for a matching event. Please note that other rules apply to those of you are non-Dutch students).


Participation in our matching activities is compulsory for applicants who have graduated from a Dutch vwo-school. We fully expect you to attend one of the matching activities (an afternoon programme) at our university. The matching dates for admission in the 2016-2017 academic year are:

25 February, 2 May, 13 June en 7 July 2016.

The matching activities consist of a number of workshops. As a part of the matching programme, we may request an individual interview with you to discuss your specific situation. If you want to, you can also apply for a personal interview yourself. Click here for more information.

Following your participation in the matching event, you will receive a recommendation as to your compatibility with the programme. Participating in our matching programme (at the UT, with the odd exception) is compulsory if you wish to be admitted. If you do not participate, your application will be cancelled.


The rules for non-Dutch students are not the same as those for Dutch students. If you are non-Dutch, your admission depends primarily on your qualifications and language skills. In addition to that aspect, we would like to interview you in order to be able to advise you as to your compatibility with the programme you have chosen. In some cases, this interview is held at the UT, in others on Skype. After receiving your intake documents, we will invite you to apply for matching, so that we can make a personal appointment with you.
