Step 1: Assemble your application documents

  • Please download the BSc2 motivation statement and answer the 3 questions on the form (on the computer; please do not use your own handwriting). Then save the form as a PDF-file. Please do take your time to question yourself why you wish to study the workload of two study programmes simultaneously.

    EU applicants

    Submit a copy of the personal data page of your passport or ID card.

    Non-EU applicants

    Submit a copy of the personal data page of your passport (ID cards are not accepted). Non-European passports should be valid for at least four months after the start of the study programme, as this is a requirement of the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service. 

    Applicants who already finished secondary school

    We require a certified copy (in color) of your secondary school diploma. A certified copy means that you have to issue a copy of the original diploma and have the copy freshly signed and stamped by a school official or a notary office. In case of British GCSEs and GCE AS/A-levels, please ask your school to provide a stamp and signature on the copy of the official certificate not on the provisional result statement. In addition, is your original diploma in a different language than English or Dutch, you are obliged to have your diploma officially translated by a sworn translator or notary office.

    Applicants who have not yet graduated from secondary school

    Please download the graduation statement, print it and ask your school to fill in the requested information as well as signing and stamping the statement. Only a certified* official graduation statement will be accepted.

    *If your school is closed due to Covid-19 and your school official is unable to freshly sign and/or stamp the document, they may include a digital signature.

    Applicants who already finished secondary school

    We require a certified copy of your final secondary school transcript. A certified copy means that you have to issue a copy of the original document and have the copy freshly signed and stamped by a school official or a notary office. In addition, is your original secondary school transcript in a different language than English or Dutch, you are obliged to have your transcript officially translated by a sworn translator or notary office.

    Applicants who have not yet graduated from secondary school

    Please supply us with 1 PDF file which contains your final results in 2019-2020 and 1 PDF file with your results so far in the year 2020-2021. Make sure the documents are correctly certified. Certified means that the documents should be freshly signed + stamped by a school official.

    If you are currently studying GCE A-levels, you are to submit a certified copy of your official British (I)GCSE certificates and, if applicable, a certified copy of your official GCE AS-level certificate(s). Make sure the copies are signed and stamped by a school official or a notary office– regular scans cannot be accepted. In addition, we require a certified overview of any obtained A-level result for this year (for instance through A-level mock exams or internal assessments) as well.

    This only applies to applicants who have not yet obtained their secondary school diploma at the moment of application. Please contact your school for a statement in which teachers predict your final grades. The statement is to be signed and stamped by a school official. In case your secondary school does not cooperate on predicted grades, you can re-upload your list of obtained grades.

    A proof of proficiency in the English language is required. Applicants must demonstrate this by means of a TOEFL iBT, IELTS Academic, or Cambridge B2 First, C1 Advanced or C2 Proficiency Certificate, not older than 2 years on the day of application. Please check the admissions website for more information on English language exemptions. There is no need to send a paper version of your test report via Postal Services.

    Your curriculum vitae is a mandatory application document, as it could show your international experiences/background. We do not have a strict format for the curriculum vitae; you are welcome to use any layout which you prefer. Please do make sure that the document is completely up to date.

    This is not a mandatory application document.

    Applicants who already finished secondary school

    When you are currently studying in another bachelor or foundation programme, you are welcome to submit a certified copy of your progress results in this section.

    Applicants who have not yet graduated from secondary school

    You are welcome to submit any additional certificates or transcripts which you feel are relevant for your admission to our University. This is not mandatory!

Certified documents

When we refer to “certified” we mean that the required document should contain a fresh stamp and signature of your school or a notary office.  

All documents should be in English or Dutch (except the motivation letter, this always needs to be written in English). If your documents are written in another language, your school, a sworn translator or a notary office can translate your documents in English and certify them. Self-made translations are not accepted.

Your complete file is kept for future reference; no documents are returned back to you. Therefore, please do not send any official diploma’s or grade lists via postal services.
