How to apply

You apply for a degree programme in Studielink when you’re interested. You enrol once we’ve checked that you meet all the requirements and have submitted all the right documents on time. You have to be enrolled to attend classes and sit exams.
Just follow a few easy steps. Open your Osiris Student account. Click on ‘personal details’, then ‘degree programme’ and ‘enrolment status for degree programme’. This page shows you the degree programme you’ve enrolled on. On the right, you’ll see a link to ‘declaration(s) of enrolment’. From here, download a declaration for every academic year. The secure PDF file is in Dutch and English with a digital signature.
If you’re enrolled for a minor or degree programme at another university in the Netherlands as well as your degree with us and pay statutory tuition fees, you can request a proof of tuition fee payment (BBC). You’re only required to pay tuition fees once. A BBC is issued once per academic year. You can request a BBC form online. We’ll send the document to your home address within five working days.
You can see if your enrolment is complete in Studielink under ‘my degree programmes’ and ‘status’. If it says ‘in progress’, please log on to Osiris Application to find out what you still need to do. If it says ‘enrolled’, you’ve completed the process. Unable to find it? Contact the Enrolment Centre and we’ll help you out. 

There’s only one intake per year in September. In some cases, programmes may allow you to start later on with an interim registration form (see next question). Non EU students and students with a residence permit for study cannot make use of this registration form.

Unfortunately, this usually isn’t possible. In very exceptional cases, the faculty director may allow you to start during the academic year.
Once you have applied via Studielink, we will invite you to explain why you have missed the start of the year, why you wish to enrol, and why you think it is still possible to catch up.
Please note, if you do not have legal residency in The Netherlands, or if you hold a residences permit for study, it is never possible to enrol during the academic year.
.
If you want to switch to a different degree programme next academic year you can register via Studielink. Please check out which deadlines apply to you. If you want to change degree programme during the academic year, you must get permission from the faculty director and complete an interim registration (see question: Can I register for a degree programme that has already started after 1 September?)

Tuition fees

Go to the tuition fee section on our website. The government sets the statutory tuition fee amount and decides who is entitled to this (as stated in the Higher Education and Research Act). THUAS decides on institutional tuition fees.

In some cases, you may be eligible for statutory tuition fees with a Dutch residence permit. We’ll let you know which additional documents you’ll need to submit during the registration process. Go to the tuition fee section on our website for more information.

This is arranged with a guarantor's declaration. Both you and your employer must sign. Your employer will then receive an invoice.
Complete an authorisation form. Your parent/guardian must sign for you if you’re under 18.

This all depends on how many payment instalments you’ve missed.

  • If you’ve missed one instalment, you’ll be sent an email reminder from Student Accounts Receivables Department (collegegeld@hhs.nl) with a link to complete your payment online.
  •  If you’ve missed two payments, we’ll send you a final reminder about automatic de-registration. If payment is still not received, your THUAS account will be blocked and you’ll no longer be able to register for exams. They’ll unblock your account once everything has been paid.
  • If you miss three instalments, we’ll hand the case over to our collection agency. You will have to pay any legal costs and interest.

Any more questions? Contact the Student Accounts Receivable Department (stating your student number) at collegegeld@hhs.nl or call +31 (0)70 445 88 63.

This overview will tell you on which dates the tuition fee instalments for the academic year 2020-2021 will be debited from your account. You will also find the amount of each instalment.
