Frequently Asked Questions - Admissions
To help you quickly, we set up a list of frequently asked questions that (new) students have during their admissions process. Please refer to this information first as the response we will send to you via email will be very similar.
Deadline for this Bachelor’s programme: 15 January.
Applications submitted after this deadline will not be taken into consideration.
All the entry requirements can be found on the website, by clicking the tab 'Application and Admission'. Use the diploma calculator to check if you need any additional diploma requirements for the programme of your choice.
After submitting your application, the Admissions Office will evaluate whether your coursework in mathematics is sufficient for this programme. As part of this process, you might be invited to take an extra mandatory mathematics proficiency test. If this applies to you, we will inform after you have submitted your application. More information can be found on the webpage of the programme of your choice.
We will not offer any additional information than stated on our website. Only by submitting a complete application in Embark we can come to an informed decision about your specific case.
Eligibility to the programme
We do not offer any kind of pre-screening services and therefore we cannot provide you with a definitive decision on whether you will be admitted to this Bachelor's or not. We do not make statements about your eligibility by phone or email. We can only come to an informed decision about your eligibility by reviewing your complete Embark application.
Our aim is to review your Embark application within 3-4 weeks. However, the review time will increase close to application deadlines or when your documents need an extra review.
If any documents are missing from your application, you will be informed by email. In order to avoid missing important information, make sure to check your spam folder for emails sent from @embark.com and @uva.nl.
Students with an international degree are required to prove their English proficiency, by taking one of the English proficiency tests or by meeting one of the possible exemptions stated on our programme’s websites. We do not grant any other exemptions than those stated on our website.
If your grades do not meet the minimum scores, your application will not be taken into consideration.
Please be aware that your English test needs to be taken before the deadline that applies to you. Make sure to hand in your test scores as soon as possible. English tests taken after the deadline will not be taken into consideration and your application will be closed.
We provide a limited number of scholarships for highly talented non-EU students applying to one of our Bachelor's and Master's programmes. Each year, the scholarship application deadline is on 15 January for students applying for the next academic year. Applications handed in after the scholarship deadline will not be taken into consideration.
Students who apply for a scholarship will be informed of the outcome by email on 1 April by the latest.
