Admission Timeline

The Netherlands follows a centralized admission process for undergraduate courses, similar to the UK UCAS system, called the Studielink. Once you browse through the programs and find a program suited to your requirements, select the Studielink banner or link and register on the website to send your application. You can apply to up to 4 courses at a time, of which two are subject to Numerous Fixus.

If you send applications via Studielink, there’s no need to pay any application fee. However, if you apply directly through the university website, you might have to pay an application fee of approx. €100 (approx. INR 8111). Additionally, you must pay the TOEFL/IELTS application fees (approx. INR 15,500) to obtain your English language fluency scores before applying.
