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. For international students it's very useful to have a look at our leaflet for the admissions steps.
|As of October||Study Choice Check: We would like to assist you as best as we can in choosing the right programme. That’s why most programmes offer the chance to get to know them in a personal meeting (face to face or by phone). You can expect an invitation from January onwards – feel free to accept or decline the opportunity for this study choice check.|
|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. |
|1 May||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||If you are a non-EU national and need us to apply for your study visa/residence permit, 1 May is the final application date. Your enrolment request must be submitted through Studielink by this date.|
|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.
|1 August||EU nationals application deadline. Your enrolment request must be submitted through Studielink by this date.|
|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!|
|This is the official start date of the new academic year. Your programme will start around this date. Information on the start of the year and the introduction period is available on our Starting Info page.|
Registration and enrolment checklist
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 2021 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.
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.
