Admission recommendation

International Sport Management 3 years, 2019-2020

International Sport Management is a three-year accelerated programme. To qualify, you will need
1) A secondary school diploma equivalent to that of a higher Dutch VWO, International Baccalaureate diploma or equivalent,
2) Meet the English language requirements .
3) After you have completed the enrolment via Studielink and have been approved as eligible, we will interview you on your affinity with sports and your motivation to make sure all ISPM students are equally motivated. This may sound quite daunting, but don’t worry, you won’t need to be a high-performing athlete to apply for ISPM. A passion for sports, a good head for business and an international outlook is the important foundation.

This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.

Bachelors candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.

All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language test.

Please check our entry requirements for more information.

If you have not quite reached the level you need to enrol for a degree but your results are promising, we offer an English Prep School programme, which takes six months or one year. On completion of this, you will not only be ready to join a Bachelor class, but you’ll also have learned a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and our university.

If you’re 21 before the 1 September 2019 but don’t have a diploma or a qualification that meets the entry requirements, you can take the 21+ Admissions Test. The 21+ Admissions Test will be offered at several dates in Spring 2019 and consists of a general capacity test. Please note that you can only participate if you have an EEA-nationality or residence permit for the Netherlands that is valid on the test date.
If you received a vwo-diploma previous to 2010, your diploma will be assessed individually to see if you qualify for admission. If you have any questions, you can contact the Central Student Enrolment Office by completing the contact form.
There can be no exceptions made to the official admission requirements. The Central Student Enrolment Office is the only agency that can arrive at decisions regarding your qualification for admission as based on the official regulations. You cannot rely on any other sources of information with regard to your qualification for admission.

If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above you might still qualify for exemption, if: you have an American or International High School Diploma, or you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma. Please contact the THUAS Enrolment Centre and ask for details.
