How to apply

It’s great news that you’ve decided to sign up for one of our degree programmes this academic year! Now it’s time to do the paperwork to register and enrol with us.

Let’s start with some key deadlines. Check the full list of important dates for deadlines based on your nationality, diploma and residence permit.

Registration dates

  
15 January
Are you applying for the Dutch-taught programme Huidtherapie (Skin Therapy)? If so, 15 January is your registration deadline. If you live at a Dutch address, you’ll need to login with DigiD. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to be organised and request it two weeks before the deadline.
15 April
If you live at a Dutch address and you don’t have a DigiD yet, you’ll have to request a DigiD login by this date so you get your application with THUAS in on time.
1 May
The most important date! This is the final application date for most degrees. Your enrolment request must be submitted through Studielink by this date. Part-time degree programmes and most dual degree programmes (all of which Dutch-taught) have a later application deadline on 31 August. Please check with your chosen programme. 
15 June

Most non-EU nationals must have submitted a complete set of application documents (including language test). This is also the package fee payment deadline. Read more about Immigration procedures.

31 August
You must meet all the admission requirements by 31 August and arrange payment of your tuition fees by direct debit or a bank transfer. Otherwise you won’t be able to start on 1 September - and we only have one intake date!

Registration and enrolment checklist

Ok, before we start, it’s important to check that you meet all our entry requirements and have the right qualifications - or you won’t get into THUAS. 

But don’t panic just yet. If you don’t meet the minimum requirements and will be 21 years or older on 1 September 2019, you might be able to take the 21+ Admission Test.

If you have a Dutch address, you’ll need to set up a ‘digital identity’ or DigiD account to log into official websites and Studielink. It usually takes around five working days, so get it up and running asap!

If you don’t have a Dutch address, set up a Studielink account. Any problems? Check out the Q&A section of the Studielink website for more info. Once you’re in, you can add your previous education details and submit an enrolment request. If THUAS has an agent in your country, you can apply through them. Just let Studielink know when prompted during the enrolment process. From China and applying for our English Prep School programme? You must apply through an agent. Agents may charge a fee for their services.

Once you’ve applied through Studielink you’ll receive your THUAS student number and a login for the Osiris application system by email. Please complete your application in Osiris and upload your documents as soon as you can so we can start work on your application.

To process your application, we’ll need you to upload:

  • a copy of your European ID card or passport
  • a residence permit valid on 1 September 2019 if you are a non-EU resident
  • a copy of your diploma certificate with the grade list or official transcript
  • or, if you haven’t yet received your diploma results, a statement (in English, Dutch, German or French) signed and stamped by your school listing your diplomas, predicted grades and expected graduation date
  • valid English language test results

Once you’ve submitted the right documents, it’s time for our Enrolment Office to make a decision. Sit tight. You can keep track in Osiris and we’ll email you once we’ve made up our minds. If you’ve gone through an agent, they’ll also receive an email.

For non-EU students it’s time to look into living abroad and arranging your immigration and visa paperwork. We will need some additional items from you. More information will be provided to you after you have submitted your enrolment request.
You’ll have to pay your tuition fees to complete your registration. If you’re paying by direct debit through Studielink, we’ll automatically debit the fee from your bank account in one lump sum or nine instalments. Digital payments are only possible if you have a bank account in a SEPA country. If you’re not from a SEPA country, you’ll need to pay the entire balance in one go and send a confirmation form. (This step does not apply for first year non-EU students who have paid the package fee)

Make sure that you check into Studielink and Osiris regularly under ‘my degree programmes’ and ‘status’ to find out how it’s going. Or look under ‘my to do list’ in Studielink to see if there are any actions you need to take. In the course of the summer, we will also send you several emails to remind you about these actions. Once your enrolment is complete, it’ll say ‘enrolled’ in Studielink. During the summer, you’ll hear from your degree programme about schedules and books. You’ll get an email telling you that your digital student card and proof of enrolment are waiting for you at the start of the academic year.
