Application procedures may vary by institution and by type of programme.

How to apply

Compare your diploma

If you know which diploma the institution of your choice has set as a minimum requirement, you can check how your diploma compares to this on the Nuffic website.

Language requirements

It is essential that you speak, read and write English well. You must have passed an English language test. IELTS and TOEFL are commonly accepted, but institutions may accept other tests as well, like Cambridge English.

The required scores are at least 550 (paper based) or 213 (internet based) for TOEFL. For IELTS a score of at least 6 is required.

Preparatory year

Sometimes you are not yet eligible to the programme of your choice, but with a little extra preparation you could succeed next year!

Ask the Dutch higher education institution of your choice for more information.
