    Application deadlines

    Application for the academic year 2023-2024 will open on 1 October. Deadlines are:

    • 15 January 2023 - regular application deadline
    • 1 May 2023 - late application deadline

    Please note that applications can be submitted any time before or in between deadlines. We recommend that you submit your application as early as possible as starting after the regular application deadline we will evaluate applications as they come in. Only complete applications will be considered.

    After you have submitted your application 

    Once you have filled in all required information and you have uploaded all required documents in our Admissions Portal, your application is complete. At that time the admissions team will evaluate your application. We will inform you about your application by 15 February if you have applied by the regular application deadline and by 31 May at the latest if you have applied by the late application deadline. 

    When you have passed the written part of the selection procedure, you will receive an invitation for an interview. During that interview, in person or online, both you and EUC will have the opportunity to check if our mutual expectations meet.

    After the interview, we will inform you about the decision of the admissions team. The decision can be one of two:

    • you receive an offer of admission to EUC; if applicable, the offer mentions the conditions of your admission
    • you are not admitted to EUC

    We have summarized the above-mentioned steps in our Application Manual, which you can consult at any time before or during your application.

    The EUC Admissions Board evaluates an applicant’s motivation and formal entry requirements to study Liberal Arts & Sciences at EUC to ensure that the applicant’s expectations match the programme on offer. All departments/disciplines are represented on the Admissions Board. Together with the Admissions Officers, the members of the Admissions Board are responsible for admitting candidates to EUC. In case of an objection sent to the Admissions Board within four weeks after receiving the decision of the selection procedure, the Chair of the Admissions Board will look into the matter and answer appellant with a funded decision in writing, within four weeks after receiving the objection. These decisions are binding. In case of an appeal against a decision, the appeal should be sent to EUR Student Arbitration Committee (Geschillen Adviescommissie Studenten) including the decision of the Chair of the Admissions Board. Appeals related to (also non-) Admissions topics will be dealt with according to the Dutch General Administrative Law Act (Algemene Wet Bestuursrecht).
