Request for admissions with study delay (corona related)

Due to the corona situation, it is possible to start with your Master’s or pre-Master’s, even if your Bachelor’s has not yet been fully completed. From 1 July onwards you can submit a request for admission with a study delay on this website.

  • If you are a student at another Dutch or EU/EER institution

    You need to meet the following requirements:

    • You can miss a maximum 15 EC* in courses of your Bachelor’s programme, if the exams and/or resits took place in semester 2 of 2020 (March 2020 - July 2020).
    • You need to complete the pending Bachelor’s courses during the academic year 2020-2021. Please take into consideration which consequences this might have for your study load. We will not be held responsible for any conflicting schedules between the 2 programmes.
    • You have submitted a request for enrolment for the (pre-)Master’s programme in both Studielink and Embark before the application deadline.

    *If your EC per course is not 5 EC or a multitude of 5, the total number of credits is rounded down. For example, if courses in your programme are 6 EC, you are allowed to miss a maximum of 2 courses or 12 EC.

    How to submit a request?
    From 1 July onwards, the request form will be published on this page. Prepare the following steps:

    1. Re-enroll in your current Bachelor’s programme.
    2. Arrange a statement by your current institute confirming that after resits, your study delay of maximum 15 EC concerns exams that were planned for semester 2 of 2020 (March 2020 - July 2020).
      Please take note: Any request that we receive without this statement, will not be taken into consideration.

    You will receive an outcome by e-mail.
