Selection procedure

After the application deadline, on February 1st you will receive information about the Selection Assessment, via email. This assessment consists of the following parts.

  • An online test. You will receive all necessary documentation (lectures and articles) on February 1st to prepare for the test.
  • Questions regarding your motivation and your study approach.

Please note: the Selection Assessment needs to be completed before 1 March, 23:59 CET.

Completing the Selection Assessment will take you approximately 4-8 hours. Keep in mind that you cannot adjust or retake the assessment after you have completed it. We also cannot make any adjustments for you.

Based on the outcome of the assessment (75%) and your grade point average (25%), we set up a ranking list of all applications. From 15 April, you can see which place on the ranking list was assigned to you. If you are selected, you have to accept your place within 2 weeks about which you will be informed by email. If you do not accept your place in time, it will (automatically) be given away to the next candidate on the list. This way, places are assigned until 600 students have confirmed their spot. You can still get selected for the programme, even though you are not one of the first 600 candidates. Last year, all candidates up to number 975 got offered a place. Please note you can receive an offer until half August; this is an automatic process via Studielink.
