Study Choice Check

If your prior education was in the Netherlands and you have applied for a full time study programme or one of the Dutch Dual learning programmes HBO-Rechten, Integrale veiligheidskunde en Bestuurskunde/Overheidsmanagement at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, we will invite you for a Study Choice Check. This is an online check that assesses the quality of your study choice process. Based on your answers, we will help you to evaluate if you have carefully and thoughtfully chosen your study programme, or if it could be helpful for you to think some more about your study choice. In case of doubt, we will give you some suggestions on how to determine if the study programme that you have chosen is right for you.

Do I need to do the Study Choice Check?

The Study Choice Check is mandatory only for students who have completed their prior education in the Netherlands, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, St Eustatius or St Maarten and have applied for a full time study programme, or the Dutch Dual learning programmes HBO-Rechten, Integrale veiligheidskunde en Bestuurskunde/Overheidsmanagement.

When will I receive an invitation for the Study Choice Check?

We will start sending the invitations by email from the second half of March 2017 . Anyone who has prior education in the Netherlands and has applied for a full time study programme before 1 March 2017 will receive an invitation in this week. If you apply after this date, you will receive an invitation by email within a week of your application. 

Can my application be rejected based upon my answers, or if I don't take part in the Study Choice Check?

Your application will never be rejected based upon your answers. If you meet our admission criteria, you are eligible for enrolment, regardless of the result of your Study Choice Check. We may, however, advise you to reconsider your study choice, in case we doubt if you have deliberately chosen your study programme.

Arrow Please note: if the Study Choice Check is mandatory for you and you do not partake in the Study Choice Check (in time) your application will be rejected. 

What can I do if I would like to talk to someone about the advice I've received after filling in my Study Choice Check?

We will advise you on what to do next in the report that you’ll receive after filling in the Study Choice Check. The exact options depend on your situation and the programme that you’ve chosen, so we advise you to read the report carefully and make use of the available options.

How will I receive advice after filling in the Study Choice Check?

After filling in the Study Choice Check, we will send you a report by email. This report contains advice on what to do next. Please note that this email may end up in your spam folder, so make sure to check the spam folder in your mailbox after filling in the Study Choice Check.

What should I do if I didn't get an invitation, or didn't receive advice?

If you can’t find one of these messages, first check the spam folder of your mailbox. If you cannot find the message in that folder, please contact the Enrolment Centre via csi@hhs.nl, and make sure to mention your student number. Please note: it may take a week before you receive an invitation for the Study Choice Check after having applied via Studielink. 

I've completed the Study Choice Check, and now I've decided that I prefer to enrol in another programme instead. Can I still change my study choice?

Yes, you can – if your first application took place no later than 1 May 2017, then you may change your study choice until the start of the academic year. Go to 'apply before 1 May' for more information. Please note that if you do so, you will receive an invitation for a Study Choice Check for your new study programme as well. 

Do you still have any questions?
