Step 2. Register in Studielink

How to register in Studielink - BSc Business Administration

The registration for the September 2019 intake is open until 15 January 2019. All students who would like to apply to a programme at the University of Amsterdam will need to register in Studielink first. Studielink is the national online registration system for students who would like to pursue a degree programme at a Dutch university. You need to register in Studielink before you can apply to the programme.

1. Before you start the registration - Check your DigiD

A DigiD (Digital Identification) is an online ID (username and password) that provides access to Dutch government administration websites.

  • Students who do not live in the Netherlands can register in Studielink without a DigiD.
  • Students who currently live in the Netherlands will need their DigiD when registering in Studielink. We strongly recommend you to apply for your DigiD at least three weeks before registering in Studielink.

Because the Studielink system might be confusing for new (International) students, we will guide you through the process with our  ‘Step-by-step guide to Studielink’. We advise you to read these instructions before starting your registration in Studielink.

The Studielink registration will be open from 10 October 2018 to 15 January 2019. In Studielink, you have to select ‘Business Administration' (a bachelor)*.

*Studielink allows you to register for a maximum of two programmes that are subject to an enrolment restriction. If you are offered a place to both programmes, you will have to choose one of them.


When you finish the registration in Studielink you will receive a confirmation email from the Studielink system. After this, you will receive an email from the University of Amsterdam with your UvAnet-ID (student number) and a link to the online application system from the Admissions Office: Embark. This is the system where you have to apply to the programme by describing your educational background and uploading required documents.

Please note: During the Holidays (week 52) it will take longer than usual to receive the emails from the University of Amsterdam due to system maintenance, you will receive all information within a week after you register in Studielink. You can already start (but not submit) your online application in Embark in the meantime.
