Deadlines and application procedures

Before you apply make sure to check:

- if you meet  the admission requirements

Contact information and information on the deadlines for admission is available on this website. Would you like to enrol for a post experience master programme? Please follow the instructions of the post experience master programme in that case.

I. Apply via Studielink

Use Studielink to apply  for a master programme with a Dutch previous education. You need to follow a number of steps:

  • Visit Studielink and log in. If you officially live in the Netherlands (you are registered in a Dutch municipality) you are required to use DigiD to log in to Studielink. If you do not, or do not yet, live in the Netherlands, then you cannot use DigiD and you are required to log in with a Studielink username and password. Step by step plans are available on the Studielink website.

  • Using Studielink for the first time? Please fill out your personal details. Erasmus University will verify your personal details. In case we are not able to, we will ask you to upload a scanned copy of your passport.
  • Did you use Studielink before? Please check your personal details and change your mail address in case this is necessary. The Studielink Q&A offers instructions on how to change this.
  • Fill out your previous education. You only need to fill out the previous education(s) that provide entry to the study programme you wish to take.
  • After you have filled out your personal details and previous education, submit an enrolment application via Studielink. Here you state which study programme you wish to take (choose master programmes).

After we have received your application via Studielink, you will receive an email from Erasmus University mentioning your student number within two working days.

Please note: in case you do NOT receive any emails from EUR after submitting your application, please check your spam box before you contact us.

II. Photo upload

After we have received your enrolment application via Studielink, you will receive a message from Erasmus University via the email address you have filled out in Studielink. In this email we give you your personal link and instructions on how to upload your picture for your student card.

Are you a former student of EUR? In that case we will not send you this email. We already have your photo and you keep the same student number.

III. Admission

The study programme decides on your admission. Make sure to follow the admission and application procedure of each study programme you apply for.

Contact the study programme in case you have questions about the admission procedure. Contact information about the master programmes is available on this website.

IV. Payment tuition fees

After the decision about your admission has been processed,  you will receive an email via Studielink as of  June about your tuition. Pay by digital authorization via studielink in case you have a bank account from a country in the SEPA area. Which countries are in the SEPA area can be found here. Follow the instruction available on the Studielink website.

More information on payment methods is available here.

V. Check the status of your enrolment application regularly

You are NOT enrolled in case your status in Studielink has not changed from 'Application Submitted' to ''Enrolled".

Enrolment should be completed before 31 August. Check your status regularly and the detail page of your enrolment application in Studielink and keep watch for any announcements of EUR.

For questions on why you are not yet enrolled, please contact Erasmus Student Service Centre in time.

VI. Student card and statement of registration

You are enrolled once your status in Studielink is changed from 'Application submitted' to ''Enrolled''.

After your status has changed into 'Enrolled' you will receive your student card and statement of registration by mail. We will send this to the Dutch mail address you have filled out in Studielink. Student cards are not send abroad. In case you have an international mail address, you will receive the student card and statement of registration via your study programme.
