How to enrol

Enrol in an English-taught minor

UAS Leiden has exchange agreements with many foreign education institutions. If your institution is one of them, you are welcome to participate in one of our English-taught minors.

All exchange students wishing to enrol in one of our English-taught minors need to have sufficient knowledge of the English language. In practice this means that your English language skills should meet the level as described in the Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreement. Please contact your home university for more information concerning this specific topic.

You can apply for one of our English-taught minors by filling out our application form. It is important to take note of the application deadlines which are stated in our application form ( doc, 237 KB ).

After we have received your application form, the international coordinator of the minor of your choice will check if you can be admitted. If you are eligible for admittance, you will receive a letter of acceptance from us.

Enrol in a Bachelor's programme in Dutch

If you have a foreign diploma and would like to register for a Bachelor's programme in Dutch, there are two things you must do before 1 May:

  • you have to apply via  Studielink.
  • you have to send an email to Caroline Teeuwisse of our Student Registration Office ( studentzaken@hsleiden.nl) informing her that you have a foreign diploma and that you would like to register for a Bachelor's programme in Dutch.

UAS Leiden will then check if your foreign diploma is sufficient to allow admittance to the programme. It is therefore essential that you send a certified copy of your diploma and your list of marks to Caroline Teeuwisse of our Student Registration Office ( studentzaken@hsleiden.nl).

Entrance exam

If you do not have a diploma or if the level of your previous education is not sufficient, you can take an entrance exam. Please note that you can only do this if you are at least 21 years old. For more information about taking an entrance exam, please send an email to studentzaken@hsleiden.nl.

Knowledge of the Dutch language

If you have a foreign diploma and you would like to register for a Bachelor's programme in Dutch, you need to demonstrate that you have sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language. In most cases this means that you have to be the possession of an NT2 diploma, level II.

Here you can find more information about NT2 and a list of institutions that offer Dutch language courses. An NT2 exam can only be taken in the Netherlands. You can find out how to register for an NT2 exam on  this website.
