How to apply


When you apply for an exhange 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. However, please note you can only enrol for an exchange programme for which the study programme at your home university has an agreement with THUAS. Before applying, always check with your university for which specific exchange programme(s) you can enroll. Applications for other programmes will not be processed by THUAS.

Application Start and Deadlines

   First semester (fall, September)   Second semester (spring, February) 
 Start applications   April 1st   October 1st

Letter of Acceptance
After receipt of the initial documentation required, 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 and enrolled.

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.
