After submitting your application

We aim to let you know the results of your application within a month after the application deadline. Based on your application, the admissions committee will decide whether you meet the entry requirements. If you live in the Netherlands, the admissions committee may select you for an interview. If you live outside the Netherlands, you may be contacted for additional information. As soon as the admissions committee has made a selection, you will receive an e-mail stating whether or not you have been admitted to the programme. If you are offered a place on the programme you will receive a registration form with which you formalise your registration.
