Enrolment and study check

International Business

You can no longer enrol for the 2019-2020 academic year. The enrolment period closed on 1 May. If you are enrolled in a different degree programme at AUAS or another higher education institution in the Netherlands and wish to (or have to) transfer to a different programme, you are exempted from this deadline. An exemption also applies if you enrolled before 1 May but would like to switch your enrolment to a different degree programme. In that case, you must do so by no later than 15 August.

The study check is a mandatory part of the enrolment procedure for applicants with a Dutch secondary school diploma. Visit study check for information on the regulations and exceptions that apply.

Our application procedure is as follows:

  1. Sign up in Studielink before 1 May.
  2. When you have signed up in Studielink and possess a non-Dutch secondary school diploma, you will automatically receive an invitation by email from the Central Student Administration (CSA) to submit copies before a certain deadline, of your non-Dutch diplomas and previous education for evaluation. Read more about our credentials evaluation.
  3. Applicants with a Dutch secondary school diploma will automatically receive an email invitation for the mandatory study check.
    1. For the study check, students need to do an online test and will have to attend a study check day at our campus.

PLEASE NOTE: The admissions and immigration process for prospective international students with Bangladeshi, Nepalese and Pakistani nationalities will take approximately 5 months to process. Therefore, prospective students from these three countries are encouraged to apply (via studielink.nl) and submit all their admissions documents to Central Student Administration before 1 March.

  1. Mandatory homework (an online assessment to be completed at home)
  2. On-campus session with mandatory attendance

Contents of the online assessment

The online assessment will introduce you to the most important subjects within the International Business degree programme. This will help you to ascertain whether this is the best degree programme for you. The online assessment includes video clips, tests and a questionnaire coaching about student counselling.

You will receive the link to the online assessment prior the on-campus session. You will receive information about the deadline as well.

If you do not complete the online assessment on time, you cannot attend the mandatory on-campus session and cannot start the programme in September. Keep in mind that the online takes about 8 hours to complete.

On-campus session with mandatory attendance
