How to apply


When you apply for an exchange at THUAS, you will create an online account that will allow you to track your application through its various stages. You can save your progress at any point and come back to it at another time.

You will also get more information regarding important topics such as immigration, accommodation and insurance.

Before applying
The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) offers a wide range of programmes. Before applying, always check with your home university for which specific exchange programme(s) you can apply and have to be nominated for. Applications for other programmes will not be processed by THUAS.

Letter of Acceptance

After receipt of the initial required documentation, you will receive a conditional Letter of Acceptance. The Letter of Acceptance is conditional in the sense that you still have to meet certain criteria (such as immigration matters, payments or entry requirements) before being fully accepted.

English language requirements
At THUAS we expect our exchange students to be proficient in English language. The following test scores indicate the level of English that is required:

  • IELTS, Academic Module. Minimum score: 6.0 overall band score.
  • TOEFL, Internet based. Minimum score 80

THUAS has agreed with its partner universities that exchange students are exempted from submitting a language test. We have agreed with our partner universities to guarantee that the nominated students will meet these requirements.

Signing of (Erasmus+) documents, courses, schedule and grade lists
Any academic/course/schedule related questions and documents (such as learning agreements, statements of attendance, etc.) as well as transcripts of records are taken care of by the programme/faculty you enroll for as an exchange student.

The International Office can only redirect you to them, so please contact the programme coordinators directly.
