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.

  • Application deadlines

    Deadlines for all (pre-)Master’s programmes are:

    • For Non-EU/EEA students with an international degree: 1 April
    • For EU/EEA students with an international degree requiring student housing: 1 April (recommended)
    • For EU/EEA students with an international degree: 1 May
    • For students with a Dutch degree: 1 June

    Applications submitted after these deadline will not be taken into consideration.

  • Entry requirements

    All the entry requirements for this Master's can be found by clicking on the 'Application and Admission' tab.

    We will not offer any other 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.

    For students that require a GMAT/GRE test

    If your scores for do not meet the minimum scores required, your application will not be taken into consideration. We do not grant any exemptions from taking a GMAT/GRE test other than the ones stated in the entry requirements of this programme.

    Please be aware that your GMAT/GRE test scores need to be uploaded before the deadline that applies to you. Test results handed in after the deadline will not be taken into consideration and will result in your application being closed.

    For programmes that require a certain GPA score

    If your GPA score does not meet the required minimum, your application will not be taken into consideration. We do not grant any exemptions to the GPA minimum.

    Please note that meeting the minimum GPA requirement does not guarantuee your selection to the programme. Selection depends on availabile capacity in the programme. Each year, the final GPA cut off is decided after we have received all applications.

    An additional GMAT/GRE test may be accepted, however, your GPA score will be leading.

  • 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 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.

    Your eligibility to the programme of your choice is solely based on academic credentials. We do not take work experience into consideration.

  • Enrolment status

    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.

  • English tests

    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 the exemptions 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.

  • Scholarships

    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.
