Frequently Asked Questions
To help you quickly, we set up a list of (new) students' frequently asked questions, along with relevant information. Please refer to this information first as the response we will send to you via email will be very similar.
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 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 application.
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 1 March for students applying for the next academic year. Applications handed in after the scholarship deadline will not be taken into consideration.
