Deadlines For international students

For most of our Master’s programmes there is the opportunity to enroll either in February or in September. Check the website of the Master’s programme of your choice for more information about the starting date(s).

Please be aware of the deviating deadlines mentioned on another topic on this webpage. 

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.

Dutch students with an international diploma

Students with a Dutch nationality and with an international (foreign) diploma from outside the Netherlands have to meet the deadlines that apply to the European (non-visa) students.

Students with a European or Dutch residence permit

International students in possession of a residence permit for one of the European Economic countries (EER) or the Netherlands have to meet the visa student deadlines. 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.
