Where can I find more information about the process of matching?

When choosing a study, it is important to consider if your skills and interests would fit the programme you picked. Therefore, a study choice check needs to be taken by future Dutch and international bachelor’s students. After submitting your application via Studielink, you are required to complete an online matching questionnaire. This will be done to match your motivations with the nature and content of the programme. You will receive an invitation to complete the online matching test.

What are the tuition fees for a bachelor’s programme?
