A DigiD (Digital Identification) is an online ID (username and password) that provides access to Dutch government administration websites.
Because the Studielink system might be confusing for new (International) students, we will guide you through the process in the Step-by-step guide to Studielink (pdf). We advise you to read about this process before starting your registration in Studielink.
You can start your registration for the Master's programme in Studielink. Please note: this is not an application to the MSc programme. Your eligibility needs to be assessed by the Admissions Office too.
When you finish the registration in Studielink you will receive a confirmation email from the Studielink system. After that, you can start your online programme application from the Admissions Office called Embark. Embark is the system where you have to apply to the programme by describing your educational background and uploading required documents. Only after submitting this application the Admissions Office will assess your eligibility to the programme.
